HEC stop Al-Khair University new admissions

Varsity barred from giving admission: HEC sets up body to accommodate present students
Islamabad, July 27: The Higher Education Commission (HEC) has constituted a special committee to accommodate students of a private university which has been barred from offering new admissions since it had failed to comply with government's criterion set for degree-awarding institutions in the private sector.

The HEC had asked Al-Khair University to stop offering new admissions and those students who got admission to the university after April 30 this year, their degrees would not be acceptable by the government.

The university administration accused HEC officials of spoiling the institution which has been providing education to the middle class for the last over 15 years.

However, on the other hand the commission officials said despite repeated reminders the university had failed to fulfill government-approved guidelines, thus leaving them with no other option but to ask the varsity's administration to close its operations.

Al-Khair University was set up through a parliamentary act by the Azad Kashmir government way back in 1994.

The HEC has formed a special committee to shift the already enrolled students of Al-Khair University to other degree-awarding institutions to save their educational careers but its administration so far has not provided the required information to the commission, said an HEC official who requested not to be named.

Instead the university has moved Islamabad High Court (IHC) against HEC and obtained a stay order. In response to a question, the official said, the university had failed on every front, be it infrastructure or faculty requirements, and instead kept on offering affiliation to countless colleges throughout the country which was against its own act. "Under its act, the university can affiliate with other institutions, but could not offer affiliation to educational institutions," the official said.

To another question, the official said though HEC was hopeful of getting IHC decision in its favour, it would go to the Supreme Court in case it does not since such bogus universities could not be allowed to play with students' lives.

A number of cases are already pending in different courts regarding the validity of its degrees literally offered in every discipline ranging from computer sciences to zoology, law to engineering pharmacy, Arabic to Persian language etc.

On the other hand, Pro-Vice Chancellor of Al-Khair University Imtiaz Goriya contended that they were trying their level best to meet government's criterion for degree-awarding universities and had already bought 60 kanals near Palandri village in AJK and had placed advertisement in the press for recruitment of faculty.

He said at present around 10,000 students were enrolled in the university's various programmes throughout the country.

"We are already seeking a meeting with the Azad Kashmir president who is our chancellor to get relief from the HEC and hopefully it will be done by the end of this month," Mr Goriya said.

To another question, he said, the university duly got no objection certificates from provincial governments before opening its campuses under their jurisdictions. Dawn

"those who r supporting this junk shop on the name of al khair university should feel shame on them selfs. HEC has banned this shop since 2011 .now they are doing tactics like finding people who have passed their B.A or M.B.A before 2009 .then they issue fake registration to them and sell degrees .HEC is silent because they pay huge money to their top officials.save your childrens future. say no to these cheap institutes."
