No BA/BSc classes in Rawalpindi upgraded colleges

DEO (colleges) says Rs 2.7 million grant given to Kalar Sayedan, Daultala colleges each
Rawalpindi, Jan 28: The nine colleges of Rawalpindi district, which were upgraded from intermediate to degree levels in 2007, have failed to start BA/BSc classes due to lack of their own buildings or additional classrooms, teachers and other facilities.

The Punjab government in 2007 decided to upgrade all the intermediate colleges to degree levels to improve the educational standards in the province and in this regard a notification was issued in December 2007.

In Rawalpindi district, nine intermediate colleges were upgraded. These colleges included Government Intermediate College for Girls Daultala, Government Intermediate College for Boys Daultala, Hashmat Ali Government Intermediate College for Boys Dhoke Kashmirian, Government Khadija Intermediate College for Girls Dhoke Sayedan, Government Intermediate College for Girls Khyaban-e-Sir Syed, Government Intermediate College for Girls Taxila, Government Intermediate College for Boys Kalar Sayedan, Government Intermediate College for Girls Chakari and Government Intermediate College for Girls Sihala.

DEO: Many colleges like Khadija College for Girls and Hashmat Ali College for Boys do not have their own buildings, said District Education Officer (DEO) Colleges Ulfat Mehmood Janjua, adding, some of the colleges do not have separate blocks for starting degree classes.

He said the Punjab government had given Rs 2.7 million grant each to colleges in Kalar Syedan and Daultala, while the construction of a block at Government Intermediate College for Girls Khyaban-e-Sir Syed would start soon. He said Khadija College's new building was under-construction, while Hashmat Ali College could not be allotted land to start the construction.

Hashmat Ali College: Hashmat Ali College Principal Sadiq Malik said that design of the new building was ready and they had sent the case to the Punjab secretary schools and secretary colleges separately. He said as soon as they would get the allotment papers they would start the construction.

Hashmat Ali and Khadija Colleges are without buildings since they were nationalised in 1973. Hashmat Ali College's classes take place in the hostel of the Comprehensive Boys High School, while Khadija College was shifted to Government Primary School for Boys, Dhoke Sayedan in 1985.

A former principal of Hashmat Ali College said that in 1982 the then secretary education during his visit to the college allotted 10 kanals land of the school to the college. But these were verbal orders and to-date the college had not received any written orders.

The boys, who recently passed the HSSC exams, said that they were happy at the upgradation of Hashmat Ali College hoping that they would be able to get admission in BA and BSc classes in the college. Mohammad Bilal, a resident of Dhoke Kashmirian, who passed HSSC examination last year with first division, said delay in BSc classes had disappointed him very much. "I wanted to do BSc from this college as it was close to my home," he added.

He said due to slow pace of construction work it seemed that in many colleges the degree classes would not start this year too, as after completion of buildings the colleges have to get affiliation with the Punjab University for starting BA/BSc classes. Daily Times
