Edu Dept mulls action against college principals
Lahore: The Punjab Education Department is contemplating disciplinary action against the principals and teachers of those colleges whose pass percentage in the BA, BSc examination remained below the mark. Last year too the department suspended some 26 principals whose colleges showed below eight per cent result in the BA, BSc annual examination 2009.

The poor pass percentage was, however, mainly due to the students' poor performance in English compulsory subject wherein 80 per cent candidates failed. The colleges, which showed ten or below 20 per cent pass percentage could have shown 80 per cent pass percentage if the candidates had passed the English compulsory.

The other reasons of the poor pass percentage are science subjects in BSc. The enrolment in BSc, is comparatively poor and in most of the colleges below 20 students. The BSc classes are not held regularly by the teachers because of the poor enrolment and poor attendance. Moreover, the laboratories are not up-to-date and students are seldom taken to laboratories for the practical.

The poor pass percentage in English is a matter of serious concern by the policy planners and academicians. Who is responsible for that and what remedy could be made to improve the result is a question yet to be answered. The poor pass percentage, not only spoil the students' career but is a colossal national loss as well. Majority of the students are dropped from further study and thus not more than five per cent qualify for admission in the postgraduate classes.

The pass percentage in the Punjab University this year was 28.75, and 27.50 last year. This mean, almost 73 per cent students failed, majority of them failed in English compulsory. The pass percentage of 57 affiliated colleges was below the University mark.

However, the affiliated colleges are strictly following the merit policy for fear of being prosecuted for admission in Inter and Degree classes on the one hand and trying to pull teachers to improve the result particularly in the subject of English both at undergraduate and graduate level. The college administrations are also making stricter measures to check the absenteeism of teachers and students. Tha nation

Law Dept's advice sought for action against ex-VC
Lahore: The Punjab Higher Education Department has sought advice of the Law Department in order to take action against the former Vice-Chancellor of Islamia University, Bahawalpur, (IUB) for alleged misappropriation of funds and illegal appointment of retired personnel in the university.

In 2009, Chief Minister Mian Shahbaz Sharif had formed an enquiry committee, comprising Higher Education Secretary Ahad Khan Cheema, Commissioner Bahawalpur Muhammad Mushtaq and the then Chairman Chief Minister's Inspection Team (CMIT) Salahuddin Ahmed Khan Niazi to inquire into the allegations.

According to documents available with The News, the committee had proposed a formal enquiry and initiation of audit pertaining to the period of the said VC of the IUB, Dr Bilal A Khan.

ýThe VC has been running the university like his personal fiefdom. All rules and regulations have been bulldozed, Section 15 (3) of the IUB Act giving emergency powers to VC, used in routine, all illegal appointments got rubber-stamped through a pliant syndicate. It seems that he has been taking action in disregard of rules and regulations which Enquiry Committee is unable to comment on due to the non-availability of record whether taken for the betterment of the institution or not. However, it may be added that the VC showed moral courage in owning up all actions,ţ reads the report.

According to the documents, VC Dr Bilal A Khan was allowed by the Governor/Chancellor to continue working as VC after the expiry of his term on 02-10-2009. However, he relinquished the charge following Prof Dr Muhammad Mukhtar assumed the charge of office of the VC with effect from 23-07-2010.

Sources in the Punjab Higher Education Department said the matter pertaining to regular enquiry or action against Dr Bilal A Khan delayed owing to observations of the GovernorÝs Secretariat regarding appointment of a regular VC of IUB. They added the department, once again, took up the issue now as the Governor Secretariat's observations had been addressed following the appointment of a regular VC of the university.

The department's recent letter to the Law Department, a copy available with The News, reads, 'After assuming the charge of regular incumbent, the situation has changed. Law and Parliamentary Affairs Department may kindly tender advice in the light of the changed situation regarding action against Ex-Vice Chancellor Dr Bilal A Khan who is now a private person. Whether he can be prosecuted under criminal law or civil remedies are available for action against him. Moreover, what any other legal action can be taken and approval of governor or chief minister in this regard is required or not,' it concludes. It is pertinent to mention here that as per the initial enquiry report, Dr Bilal A Khan during his tenure as VC of the Islamia University, Bahawalpur, had made a number of alleged illegal and unlawful appointments, including those of Director Campuses, Deputy Registrar, Security Officer and Assistant Treasurer. Besides, the Ex-VC has also been accused of committing irregularities in different development projects of the university.

A senior official of the department said action would be taken against the Ex-VC as soon as the reply was received from the Law Department, adding the advice was necessary as Dr Bilal was now a private person. The news
