Over 200 CDGK schools not functioning
Karachi: The city government has 228 schools which are not functioning, and all these schools are located in the less developed areas of the city.
This was stated at a meeting held at the DCO Camp Office here on Monday to discuss the modalities for adopting the non-functional educational institutions.
During the meeting, Administrator Karachi Muhammad Hussain Syed asked the business community to invest in the education sector on a no-profit basis so that the children of the poor could also acquire quality education.

The committee, which is headed by Muhammad Saeed Shafiq, president of the Karachi Chamber of Commerce & Industry (KCCI), would submit a report within a week on the improvement of education in these schools. The news
IIUI water supply remains disconnected
Islamabad: The International Islamic University Islamabad (IIUI) is without water after the Capital Development Authority (CDA) discontinued the supply over a year back.
"The civic body last June abruptly discontinued the university's water supply without any notice or warning. There have been several meetings since then but the water supply has not been restored," said an official with the IIUI.
The university has three tubewells in running condition; another two are being installed to meet the increasing water demand on the campus – all from the university's own budget.
"The shortage is troubling the management and the students. It's going to be a while before the other two tubewells will become operational but the university will still need sufficient water to meet the needs of nearly 22,000 to 23,000 students and staff on the campus. "We have nearly 12,000 students who are children of the taxpaying citizens of Islamabad and Rawalpindi and they need this basic service," the official said.
According to IIUI, the university followed CDA guidelines to lay a water pipeline specifically for this purpose costing Rs4.6 million over 11 years ago.
Worst even was the fact that unlike all other sectors there was no water filtration plant on the campus, the official said, adding how CDA had confused priorities – spending millions on widening the Kashmir Highway when residents were without even clean drinking water.
"The authority has installed filtration plants in every sector even in jungles and they have water for the H-9 nursery but not in Sector H-12 home to thousands of students," the official said.However, CDA spokesman Ramzan Sajid said the civic authority was not bound to provide water to the university.
"There is no such agreement in writing. In fact, it was made clear that the university would install tubewells to draw water for its requirements."
According to the official, CDA had to discontinue the university's water supply because the source was running dry.
There had been protests when the water supply was cut off, said the CDA official, adding this was exactly what the authority had explained to IIUI that it would have to produce its own water.Water for IIUI is not the only concern for its administration. The university has no service to take away its solid waste produced by 20,000 students and staff every day.
"A CDA garbage truck used to go there and take away rubbish from the campus but that too stopped service recently," the official said, adding how fumigation on the campus was as important as in other sectors. Dawn
