VC vows to depoliticise Punjab University
Lahore: Punjab University vice-Chancellor Mujahid Kamran expressed his resolve to improve the varsity's ranking by depoliticizing its campuses and promoting research culture.

In an interview here at PU New Campus on Sunday, the VC highlighted efforts to ensure an ideal apolitical environment for students. He asserted that any pressure group or student organization even from teachers and employees would not be allowed to violate discipline of the institution as well as the future of more than 30,000 students. He said that no organization had legal status to organize its activities or interfere into matters related to the administration, adding the varsity would not be influenced by pressure tactics of any political group or illegal organization.

Dr Mujahid Kamran said that some external political elements were backing some senior teachers of the university and a student organization for their vested interests. He said that during his tenure as VC, he managed to control most of activities of Islami Jamiat Talaba (IJT) and they could not organize their functions on the campus freely as they used to do in past. He said that genuine students could express their potential through co-curricular activities and their protection would be ensured at every cost.

Dr Mujahid Kamran said the Higher Education Commission had improved the ranking of Punjab University to 4th position among universities of the country as its research publications had increased from 269 to 750 till Nov 2011 and the total number of research publications during his term from 2008 to 2010 was 1,384 which was a positive sign.

The VC said that he took steps for faculty development and improved the efficiency of teachers through their capacity building and research. He said the university produced more than 100 PhDs every year during his three-year term and 425 PhDs had been produced since Nov last. He criticised the role of some senior teachers for backing a student organisation to pressurise the administration for their vested interests and to prove their loyalty to a religio-political party, which had inducted them in the 70s in violation of merit.

"We have the potential to produce more PhDs and the target will be achieved through hard work, dedication, depoliticization and continuation of policies," he said.

Referring to communication with more than 30,000 university students, he said that an email system had been designed by which the students send their mail and necessary action was being taken on their applications.

He said the university also improved linkages with foreign universities and various agreements had been signed for students exchange, foreign language courses and visits to benefit from the experience of each other.

The VC said that he had not only reorganized the human resources department at the university but also regularized more than 3,000 people and also promoted almost 100 per cent employees. He said with the support of the government and teachers and students, the university could be included among top 200 universities of the world. The news

Lahore Board to conduct 2012 examinations manually
Lahore: The Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (BISE) ordered the preparation of 2.5 million answer sheets for the 2012 exams, which will be conducted manually, for more than 0.4 million candidates, following the failure of its online system. BISE has also decided to send roll number slips to candidates through postal services under the previous practice.

Last year, due to massive errors in exam results and a delay in issuance of roll number slips due to problems in the online system, candidates and their parents held widespread protests. On the request of the Punjab government, a judicial commission submitted an inquiry report, fixing the responsibility on 27 officers, including heads of all education boards.

In order to avoid past mistakes, BISE has ordered the preparation of 2.5 million answer sheets and the issuance of manual roll number slips. Candidates are being directed to obtain forms from the website and send them to the Board Secretariat by post after filling them. The last date for the registration of private candidates is December 28 and for regular students is January 3. In the month of October, there were again reports that the online registration system of BISE had failed yet again, causing problems for private colleges registering intermediate Part I students for the 2012 annual examination through the Lahore Board website. The last date for online registration was extended till September 26, but the website link for registration did not work in the last few days. This failure left many regular students of private colleges unregistered. A number of faults have already been exposed in the online system of the Lahore Board since its inception in 2010. The system caused problems for students and the college administration every time registration began, roll number slips were issued and results announced. Recently, further problems were exposed when the matriculation result was announced and more than 10,000 students were placed in the Result Late (RL) category. Besides the RL case, a number of students also received result cards full of errors. Daily times
