National Internship Programme internees stipends

57 NIP internees at IIU yet to get stipends
Rawalpindi, Aug 28: A total of 57 internees working with the International Islamic University, Islamabad (IIUI) under the National Internship Programme (NIP) have not received their stipends for the last three months.

The internees said that it has been three months that they have not been paid their stipends, saying that the university administration has been citing different reasons for the delay in their due payment of stipends.

The internees said they could not visit their homes in other parts of the country because of the financial constraints caused by the non-payment of stipends. Most of the internees hail from NWFP, and southern and central Punjab, and have to pay the rent of their residential apartments as well.

Director General NIP Ashfaq Abbasi, when contacted said a lump sum stipend amount till September for these internees has already been sanctioned, and attributed the delay to some incomplete files of the internees, who till this time have not furnished some necessary documents before the NIP.

The DG said the Accountant General of Pakistan Revenue (AGPR) has demanded complete files of the internees for the release of the stipend money. He said that a single section officer of NIP was dealing with all these matters and after his retirement, no one has formally assumed the charge. NIP itself deals with the AGPR on behalf of the autonomous bodies such as IIUI and the delay is because of the shortage of staff in NIP.

The internees demanded of the government to pay their stipends as soon as possible, so they could celebrate Eid with their families in their native areas. The news

Invigilators fail stress test
Rawalpindi: A superintendent and his deputy, who supervised an examination during which a nephew of former MNA Haji Pervaiz Khan was caught impersonating his uncle, have changed their statements before a disciplinary committee, saying the man was arrested outside the Gordon College's examination hall.

Officials privy to the departmental investigation said the superintendent, who lodged an FIR with the City police after examination inspector Naeem Bajwa found Bilal Javaid taking examination on behalf of his uncle, retracted apparently under pressure.

Likewise, the deputy superintendent also changed his earlier statement given to the police and told the inquiry team that there had been no cheating and impersonation case.

Five persons the superintendent, his deputy, Gordon College principal, examination inspector and a member of special inspection team, Ilyas Qureshi were to appear before the five-member inquiry committee set up by the chairman of the Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (BISE), Rawalpindi.

The committee was comprised of Prof Farooq of Asghar Mall College, Prof (Dr) Rafique, principal of Pilot School Attock, Government College Chakwal principal Sajjad Ahmed and Prof Fehmida of Government College for Girls, Attock.

As Gordon College principal and Ilyas Qureshi did not appear before the inquiry committee, only the inspector who caught Bilal red-handed stated that the offence of impersonation was committed.

Following the statements of the superintendent and deputy superintendent, the inquiry committee did not recommend any action against the examination staff, observing that no case of impersonation took place.

BISE Rawalpindi Chairman Abdul Hafeez, however, did not accept the recommendations of the committee, and instead formed a special inquiry team to re-investigate the matter.

It may be mentioned here that the five persons who were to appear before the inquiry committee had signed the answer sheet, which was seized from Bilal, while initiating a case about use of unfair means.

The PML-N MNA has resigned from the National Assembly and his nephew has been released on bail.The educational board has disqualified both the superintendent and his deputy from invigilation for 10 years. The inspector, who unearthed the case, got his services transferred as he was being pressurised to change his statement. Dawn
