Tevta nod to commerce education transfer to HED
Lahore: The Technical Education and Vocational Training Authority (Tevta) Board on Tuesday approved transfer of its commerce education stream to the higher education department.
The decision was taken some two years ago but its implementation got delayed due to reluctance on part of the higher education department.
The higher education secretary had earlier this year given his consent for taking over Tevta commerce education along with all assets and liabilities after June 30.
Consequently, five different committees were constituted, having representatives of both departments, to finalise smooth transition of assets and liabilities, manpower and human resources, service record, litigation and transfer of power.
The Tevta Board meeting stressed that transfer of commerce education from administrative control of Tevta to the higher education department should not affect students and teachers in any way. Dawn

Famous presenters and anchors of radio and television will deliver special lectures during the workshop. The objective of the workshop is to provide first-hand knowledge to the students.
On the first day of the workshop, renowned journalist and anchor Fahd Hussain delivered a lecture on the skill of anchoring. He said that if a person wanted to become a good anchor, firstly he or she needed to be a good journalist, since without knowing the rules and regulation of journalism, one couldn't survive in the field. He said, "The print media in our country is facing lots of challenges.
In fact all over the world, wherever electronic media prevails, print media is facing similar threats. It is therefore the responsibility of a good anchor to present such issues in the media." The talk show host said anchors needed to raise complex issues and simplify them for the viewers. The workshop followed an interactive question-answer session where students raised questions related to anchoring and journalism. app
