LAHORE, May 19(Daily Times): The Punjab University (PU) Syndicate in its 1672nd meeting held on Friday has approved the recommendations of a selection board presented on May 8 for upgrading 436 PU faculty members to the next scale, according to a PU press release.

The board recommended that the professors currently on basic scale (BS)-20 should be upgraded to BS-21, associate professors from BS-19 to BS-20, assistant professors from BS-18 to BS-19 and lecturers from BS-17 to BS-18. Sixty professors, 64 associate professors, 155 assistant professor and 157 lecturers would be upgraded due to this decision.

The meeting also approved overseas PhD scholarships for 20 permanent faculty members and 12 non-permanent faculty members provided by the Higher Education Commission (HEC) under the Staff Development Programme. These faculty members will travel to various European countries for study in two phases.

PU Vice Chancellor Lt Gen (r) Arshad Mehmood said that the university was progressing and was focussing on academic and research development.

The VC chaired the meeting and Registrar Dr Muhammad Naeem Khan was the secretary. Other members of the syndicate who attended the meeting include: Justice (r) Sardar Ahmad Iqbal, Education Department's Adil Rasheed Khan, Finance Department's Raja Jahangir Anwar and Shahzad Alam.

PU summer vacations from June 18: PU sources said that the university's teaching departments, institutes, centres and constituent colleges would remain closed for the summer vacations from June 18 to July 30. Notification in this regard by the university will be issued today (May 19).

Suparco land lease renewal approved: The PU Syndicate approved the renewal of the land lease agreement with Space and Upper Atmospheric Research Commission (Suparco) for ten years with revised terms and conditions.

After the meeting, Registrar Khan said that the Syndicate had extended a previous contract with the Suparco for ten years, adding that the university had decided that all contracts would be subjected for reconsideration after every two years. He said the PU would also charge Suparco per-acre agriculture rate. He added that Suparco would help improve PU laboratories and provide training and apprenticeships to PU students studying physics, chemistry and space sciences etc.

A controversy had erupted between the PU and Suparco in 2006 when the PU had refused Suparco's request for the provision of additional 50 acres besides the existing 12 acres it already had of the university's land.
