'Black day' observed on SPLA call
Karachi: Teachers at the public sector colleges across Sindh observed a "black day" on Thursday against the manhandling of some DJ Science College teachers by unruly students on Tuesday.

They hoisted black flag on college buildings and wore black armbands during duty hours at the exam halls while candidates took their Higher Secondary School Certificate (HSC) papers.

The call for the protest was given by the Sindh Professors and Lecturers Association (SPLA).

Speaking at a news conference at the DJ Science College, SPLA leaders Prof Ather Mirza, Prof Himmat Ali Pitafi, Prof Muzaffar Ali Rizvi, Prof Yaqub Chandio, Prof Iftikhar Azmi and Prof Shafquat Jokhio deplored the incident and demanded security to the teacher community at all educational institutions in the province.

They also termed the Higher Education Commission (HEC) decision of awarding grade-18 to the lecturers of public sector universities "sheer discrimination", and urged the Sindh government to immediately upgrade the post of college lecturers in order to bring them at par with university lecturers.

The SPLA also demanded upward revision of college teachers' pay scales as was being done in the case of legislators and other officials, maintaining that college teachers too were groaning under the high inflation rates and sky-rocketing prices of essential commodities.

They deplored that more than 500 grade-19 college teachers, whose promotion to grade-20 had become due a long time ago, had already been retired merely because the provincial selection board-I (PSB-I) could not meet during over the past eight years. They urged the government to immediately convene a PSB-I meeting to pave the way for the promotion.

Expressing their concern over an inordinate delay in the issuance of a notification for the promotion of grade-17 and grade-18 college teachers, the SPLA leaders said it was beyond their comprehension that why the notification was withheld although the meeting of the departmental promotion committee for the purpose had been convened long ago.

They further demanded introduction of the time-scale/formula for the promotion of college teachers as was being done in Balochistan from July 1, 2009.

The SPLA also called for a health insurance policy and a housing scheme for college teachers.

Notices issued in Islamia College rent case
Karachi: A Sindh High Court division bench issued notices on Thursday in a petition seeking review of its order remanding the Islamia College rent recovery case to a single judge, who decreed a suit instituted by the official assignee as caretaker for the Islamia Education Trust on admission.

The provincial government challenged the single judge's decision, saying that there was no admission on its part that the trust was the owner of the college premises and it managed the Government Islamia Colleges as a mere tenant. The appellant government said it was the owner of the land and the building housing the colleges and confusion was caused by a typographical error in its written statement. The impugned order asked the provincial education department to pay Rs110 million to the trust as rent arrears.

The appellate bench comprising Justices Khilji Arif Hussain and Sofia Latif remanded the case to the single judge for a decision on merit rather than on mere admission. The remand order said the official assignee conceded that the appeal was maintainable and that the case should be decided on merit. The assignee filed an affidavit that he made no such concession and that the order may be reviewed and amended to the extent of his alleged concession.

The review petition was contested by Assistant Advocate-General Adnan Karim Memon, who said the order was dictated in the assignee's presence. The bench allowed him to file objections to the review petition and adjourned the hearing to a date in office. Dawn
