Higher Education Commission(HEC) keeps Rs 4b unused

ISLAMABAD, May 25(The Nation) - A huge amount of Rs four billion is lying with the Higher Education Commission (HEC) as unallocated owing to the absence of quality research work in universities.

Former Governor State Bank Dr Ishrat Hussain confided this Thursday while speaking at a forum of 5th National Research Conference, being organized by SZABIST, here.

He said that the HEC allocated Rs 4 billion for promoting quality research work in the country but national universities lagged the criteria, which was set by HEC to provide funding for the research work.

Regretting the poor situation of creative research work in the country, Dr Ishrat said that the nation had become master of verbosity and the condition had worsen to such an extent that "we are unable to find out any Pakistani scholar of international caliber at multinational forums."

He urged to have knowledge-based education in the country and advised the students to follow the path of unearthing the truth and develop a sense of creativity and innovation.

Absence of knowledge-based education has taken the nation to a point where the ill-formed policies are being made at the highest level, consequently turning into disaster, said Begum Shahnaz Wazir Ali, former federal minister, while speaking on the occasion.

She said that pre-primary stage was the most crucial stage for learning but unfortunately Pakistan did not have any fund allocation while leaving the sector undeveloped.

Earlier, Syed Asad Hussain, head of SZABIST, talked about the achievements of his institution. He said that so far Islamabad Campus had produced 22 research papers out of which 15 were presented at international forums and 7 were presented at the national forums.
