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.
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.
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
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
