Students of UoP Dept protest exam schedule, block road
PESHAWAR:23 May: The students of Environmental Sciences Department of the University of Peshawar (UoP) on Tuesday blocked the main Jamrud Road for several hours, multiplying the woes of motorists, who have already been badly affected by the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT).
The protesting students pressed the university administration to withdraw the examination schedule as they believed they were unable to take examination during the month of Ramazan.

However, they called off their protest in a peaceful manner after the university administration accepted the demands. The students of the Department of Environmental Sciences had also staged a protest demonstration inside the university building seeking withdrawal of the examination schedule. But the university administration was inflexible to accept their demand.

The University of Peshawar had earlier asked all the faculties and departments to wind up their academic activities before June 15, a date on which the university would be closed down and hostels vacated.

The hostels, according to the university administration, were being vacated for renovation and expulsion of outsiders. In view of the notification, different departments set their schedule for examination. However, the students of Department of Environmental Sciences started protest against it and managed to get their demands accepted.The news.

Education News from Sindh / FAPUASA) demanded independent academic audit of HEC

FAPUASA) demanded independent  academic audit of HEC
Islamabad :23 May: Federation of All Pakistan Universities Academic Staff Association (FAPUASA) has demanded independent 4 years financial and academic audit of Higher Education Commission (HEC).

FAPUASA President Dr. Kaleem ullah Bareach and President of Balochistan Chapter and member Executive Committee FAPUASA Dr. Fareed Achakzai said that higher education performance during last four years is abysmal.

A number of irregularities and illegalities were observed during this turbulent time including financial and academic. The HEC became a pray of adhocism during this time and the ranking of universities whether it’s times or QS went down.

A short time ago 5 universities were in top 500 universities of the world and now our varsities are only being included in the list of Asian or emerging economies list, the falling behind of Higher Education is shameful for us as a nation.

They said it is very unfortunate that HEC budget amounting to more than 90 billion rupees did not get approval from the governing body of HEC, which was a legal and mandatory requirement under HEC ordinance 2002.

In addition smaller provinces specially, Balochistan was deprived of its proper share in the annual budgetary allocations especially in PSDP. On the other hand the development funds were distributed through discriminatory way as an example a constituency of a powerful minister got more than 11 billion rupees for development in a small district which was ten times higher than the whole budget allocation of Balochistan. It reflects the typical mind set of HEC leadership to deliberately deprive smaller provinces. They further said despite the joint resolution of senate of Pakistan (House of Federation) to enhance retirement age of University teachers to 65 years and tax rebate of 75%. Although, the resolution was passed unanimously and Ex-Chairman HEC Dr. Mukhtar Ahmed agreed on the spot.

Denouncing the unanimous decision of the most prestigious parliamentary forum, and backing out from its earlier endorsement, the HEC has sent some opposing comments on the enhancement of retirement age to 65 years, which reflects an unfortunate state of affairs in HEC, They lamented.

FAPUASA demanded the prime minister being the controlling authority of HEC to announce independent financial and performance audit of HEC during the tenure of Dr. Mukhar Ahmed on immediate basis over the reported irregularities, misuse of authority and illegalities.

They also requested Prime Minister for immediate appointment of Chairman HEC amongst the four distinguished academicians already shortlisted by the search committee and controversial candidates whose cases are already under NAB inquiry should be avoided for any role in higher education sector.The news.

Punjab govet asked  administration to transfer funds by May 24
LAHORE:23 May: The last two installments of the non-salary budget (NSB) funds haven’t reached schools and the Punjab government has asked the administration to transfer the funds by May 24.
The NSB fund was designed to allow schools to independently make small-scale purchases, improve infrastructure and hire part-time staff. It is distributed based on a set formula that has been devised to pay the funds to all primary, elementary, high and higher secondary schools in each of districts.

The funds were to be distributed quarterly and the NSB funds were divided into installments of Rs3.5 billion for each quarter. As per the budgetary allocation for the fiscal year 2017-18, the Punjab government allocated Rs14 billion for the NSB.

The Punjab government had rapidly released two installments of the funds in March and April, before the end of the current government’s tenure. However, the schools had been unable to receive the funds.

Expressing concern, the Punjab School Education Department (SED) has raised the matter with District Education Authorities (DEAs) Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) of all districts of the province. In a letter, the SED said: “It has been observed with great concern by the authority that the districts have not yet transferred NSB to the schools, which causes a great lapse towards development of schools.” The department has asked the CEOs to make transfers immediately.

According to the letter, “You are hereby directed to transfer NSB of 3rd quarter which was released on 29th March, 2018 and also 4th quarter which was released on 17th April, 2018).

You are further directed to transfer NSB to the concerned schools immediately to avoid any untoward situation.”

The letter also warned the CEOs that they would be held responsible if the funds were not transferred by May 24. It stated: “All CEOs (DEA) are requested to ensure transfer of this amount by May 24, 2018, and also provide a certificate duly signed by CEO (DEA) that NSB amount has been completely transferred to the concerned schools. In case of any deficiency, CEO (DEA) will be personally held responsible for this delay.”

When contacted, SED Secretary Dr Allah Bakhsh Malik said that the department would ensure that the funds reach individual schools as per allocation by May 24.

The Punjab Management and Implementation Unit of the Punjab Education Sector Reform Programme (PMIU-PESRP) had earlier instructed the CEOs that the funds, which had been transferred to Special Drawing Accounts (SDAs), had to be jointly operated by the CEOs and district education officers (secondary) in all 36 districts of the province.

The PMIU-PESRP had directed the CEOs to immediately distribute the funds as per allocations and submit its confirmation by April 25. It further directed the officials to ensure effective and efficient monitoring and utilisation of the funds. The PMIU-PESRP also issued guidelines for further allocation and transfer of funds by districts to individual schools and also for the institutes to use the allocation. “District Education Authorities are being provided with school-specific and need-based NSB funds over and above their Punjab Finance Commission share as a conditional grant, which cannot be used for any other purpose,” the PMIU-PESRP told the CEOs in April.
