Kuts rejects syndicate proposals
Karachi: The Karachi University Teachers' Society (Kuts) has strongly criticised the university syndicate for recommending some changes in the rules of appointment of lecturers, which, according to the society, are against the university's stated regulations and interests of teachers' community.

In its executive council meeting held on Monday, Kuts passed a unanimous resolution, condemning the recent move of some syndicate members who had proposed some changes in appointment rules for lecturers in the last meeting of the syndicate held on Aug 29.

It may be mentioned here that some senior teachers, who are members of the syndicate as well, suggested in the last meeting that the rules for the appointment of lecturers be changed.

They suggested that a PhD should not be allowed to apply and an applicant should be first division holder with 70 per cent marks in both bachelors and masters.

This created anger in the teachers' community when the minutes of the meetings were became available to them on Saturday.

The text of the minutes, however, is confusing - at one place it says that the suggestions were discussed and at another place it says that the suggestions were approved.

The three Kuts members, who are part of the syndicate, had to face severe criticism from their colleagues at the Monday's meeting.

The meeting presided over by Dr Abid Husnain, acting Kuts president, requested syndicate members to reject these proposals in the next meeting.

The Kuts members observed that the suggestions were "completely irrational" and that they did not merit any discussion.

Scholars from different parts of the country as well as Iran and Russia are participating in the symposium whose inaugural session was also attended by HEC chairman Dr Jawed Leghari.

The VC expressed concern over delay in release of funds for foreign scholarships, and said that recently the Central Development Working Party had approved 69 scholarships, but funds had not been released yet.

Mr Siddiqi said that the university had been sending its faculty to those countries where expenditure of higher education was subsidized, and expressed the hope that Mr Leghari would ensure early release of the funds.

The VC congratulated Dr Laghari, a graduate of the SU, on his appointment as the HEC chairman, and expressed the hope that he would strive to develop universities of the country on modern lines.

The HEC chairman said that the commission had provided a software to universities to check and prevent plagiarism in research.

He said that scrutiny of research work through the software had been made mandatory.
