Lahore: Lahore High Court (LHC) Chief
Justice Ijaz Ahmad Chaudhry on Friday again sought replies from the federal
government and the Higher Education Commission (HEC) on a petition against 40
alleged fake universities and colleges in Punjab.
The chief justice will
now resume the hearing of the petition in September after the summer vacation.
Barrister Javed Iqbal Jaffrey moved the petition in which he challenged mushroom
growth of fake universities and other educational institutions in the province.
He submitted that a large number of fake education institutions had been
functioning in the country and deceiving the youth for money. He said that the
people were running the universities in residential areas and without any
facilities. He submitted that the government had no mechanism to check private
colleges and universities as they were minting money from students providing
nothing in return. Daily times
