Lahore, Aug 09: Following recent announcement of matriculation results by all the nine
examination boards of Punjab and end of Eid-ul-Fitr holidays, the
admission season at colleges for intermediate level education is
sector colleges don't have a uniform policy and schedule for admission,
public sector colleges too seem in a state of disarray vis-à-vis
admission schedule and related polices including prospectus prices etc.
wonders as to why in the presence of an Online College Admissions
System (OCAS) for public colleges in Punjab, government colleges have
announced different schedules, policies and mandatory purchase of
prospectus by students. On the other hand, apply-online feature is yet
not available on the OCAS website and is expected to be available from
A number of prospective
students expressed concern over confusion surrounding the admission
process especially at public colleges and through the OCAS. Nadeem
Afzal, a student, said Government Islamia College, Civil Lines, and
Government Dyal Singh College of the provincial metropolis had set
August 9 the last date to receive admission forms while Government MAO
College set August 11 the last date. He said some colleges had
advertised that admission would be made online while others announced
manual and online admission.
Similarly, public sector
universities offering intermediate level education including Government
College University (GCU) and Lahore College for Women University (LCWU)
etc have a different schedule and procedure for admission. The GCU is
accepting admission forms with a Rs 200 prospectus till August 11 while
LCWU till August 09.
According to students, different
schedules for admission are in favour of them as anyone failing to get
admission form etc form a particular college because of any reason could
avail it from others having different schedules.
many private colleges have announced cash prizes, scholarships and
special discount in fee for intermediate level studies at their
respective campuses in order to attract high achievers.
students also demand the government restrict private and public
colleges from fleecing students in the name of prospectuses. They demand
in case the government could not do it, at least a nominal and uniform
price should be fixed by the government.
also demanded the government to abolish practices like submitting a
character certificate along with admission forms. It is generally
observed that students have to repeatedly visit their respective
institutions to get the certificate and sometimes they even have to
grease the palms of officials for the purpose. The result card or
examination certificate should be considered enough to judge the
"character" of a student, commented a student, Azhar.
The News could not reach Higher Education Secretary Abdullah Khan Sumbal despite repeated attempts on his cell phone.

GCU not to entertain students with less than 60% marks
Lahore: A student with less than 60 percent marks in matriculation and
more than 18 years of age cannot apply for intermediate admission to the
Government College University. In view of exceptionally high merit,
such students absolutely never born on merit lists for the last several
decades as new admission policy of 2014 promises merit-based transparent
admissions to all faculties, especially with no increase in tuition fee
besides eliminating nepotism and favouritism.
Vice Chancellor Dr Khaliq
Ur Rehman in an interview with APP on Sunday said that nearly 1,000
students would be admitted to first year pre-medical, pre-engineering,
humanities, I.Com, strictly in accordance with merit criteria laid down
in the policy. He said a high powered admission committee had been
constituted to monitor overall process of admissions.
The GC University,
the 150 years oldest seat of learning, has emerged as one of the best
public university with excellent academic track record in the
Sub-continent with the affordable fee for inter, postgraduate,
undergraduate, M Phil and PhD courses. He said: "We restructured several
faculties of various teaching departments, inducted teachers on merit
and the number of students increased manifolds with the highest ever
strength." Khaliq Ur Rehman said the science students of the university
always excelled with foreign students in certain areas of
specialization. He said decades old syllabi and courses were being
revised periodically and updated to meet future challenges. He said not a
single student was admitted out of merit during his tenure. The VC said
that currently over 300 high profile faculty mostly PhD were imparting
education to 10,000 students. Daily times

Malpractices in PU art college alleged
Lahore: Former principal of Punjab University's College of Art and Design (PUCAD)
Maliha Azmi Agha has revealed fake admissions in MPhil program of the
varsity's College of Art and Design with the alleged involvement of the
vice-chancellor of the varsity.
Addressing a press
conference here at the Lahore Press Club on Wednesday, Maliha Agha
alleged that the vice-chancellor had also ignored her several complaints
regarding suspicious activities of College's assistant professor Amjad
Pervaiz vis-à-vis his alleged involvement in immoral activities with
girl students of the college.
She further alleged that she
had been removed from her post without issuance of any notice, while
the charge-sheet was given 10 days after her removal from the post. She
had submitted her reply in writing, she said, however, she had refused
to appear before the 'partial committee' constituted by the
vice-chancellor of university.
She said the PU Syndicate
was also powerless, therefore, she appealed to Chief Minister Shahbaz
Sharif to take notice of such illegal activities going on at the College
of Art and Design right under the nose of the VC.
rejecting the allegations of ex-principal Maliha Agha, a large number
of PU CAD teachers, including Prof Dr Shahida Manzoor and Amjad Pervaiz,
told a press conference at the Lahore Press Club that Maliha was
leveling baseless allegations without any proof. They accused her of
involvement in promoting unethical activities at the college, saying
there were proofs of her gross misconduct. Flanked by employees and
students and documentary evidences, the teachers said that it was easy
to level allegations against somebody's character as Maliha had done but
she had failed to produce any evidence. On the contrary, said Dr
Shahida Manzoor and Pervaiz, the CAD teachers had provided evidences to
the inquiry committee regarding her misconduct and involvement in
immoral activities. They said that Maliha tempered with the result of 12
students after declaration of results and affected the results of 12
students whom she had already threatened to face consequences on some
They said that they had an audio recording and
documentary evidences of the whole episode. They said that the result of
BFA III - Graphic Design 2009-2013 was announced without any lecture
delivered by the teacher or without the submission of any assignment /
exam and 33% marks were awarded to the students, destroying the future
of the whole class. They said that gross misappropriation of the college
funds had been found in printing of prospectus and other related
projects and events.
They said Maliha hired unqualified
and incompetent people on senior faculty posts and S.M. Mansoor, a
diploma holder from NCA was appointed on contract and was tasked to
teach M Phil classes, which was against the rules.
said Maliha was habitual of insulting teachers and employees. They said
the University Syndicate had confirmed the services of a few young
faculty members. On 6-01-2014, Maliha called 14 confirmed faculty
members and proclaimed that she would cancel their confirmations and
ruin their ACRs, even though they had already been approved by the
They said Maliha was operating as the
convener / member of the College's Doctoral Committee, despite the fact
that she was not a PhD and only possessed an M.A in Art Education. They
said that, according to the university rules, if the principal/director
of any department did not hold a PhD degree, the Dean was supposed to
perform this function. They said that a new logo was introduced for the
College of Art & Design which happened to be an apparent copy of the
Coventry University, U.K's logo, which damaged the repute of the
college. The teachers said that, on May 14, 2014, under the supervision
of the principal, a vulgar & obnoxious event took place on the
college premises against which 24 out of 27 teachers wrote a letter to
the Vice Chancellor. They said that some of the senior faculty members
resigned due to the biased and negative attitude of the principal or
they were terminated form the college, including Prof. Dr. Rahat Naveed
Masood, Asif Sharif, an experienced sculptor, Ali Baba, a good sculptor
and curator of Ana Molka Art Gallery, and Dr. Mehmood Hussain Professor
on contract in the Department of Architecture.
that some 23 employees had also put in a request to the vice chancellor
stating that they could no longer perform their duties in view of the
tense atmosphere in the college.
They pointed out that
negative lobby was being promoted. They said that Maliha was leveling
baseless allegation of admission but she had admitted her favorite
teacher Mrs. Arooj Rizvi's husband Kamil Iftikhar illegally.
according to another press release on Wednesday, the PU spokesman,
while reacting to the press conference of Maliha Azmi Agha, said that
the latter had approached the court and now she should wait for the
decision and, under these circumstances, there was no reason and need to
hold press conference. He said that as the matter was sub judice, it
was inappropriate to comment on the issue.
spokesman said the PU administration, on the complaint of CAD teachers
and students, and on the direction of the PU Syndicate, had formed an
impartial inquiry committee to look into some allegations of the
sensitive nature against her. He said that Maliha Agha had praised the
character of the vice chancellor in front of the court and now her
allegations were a big surprise.
Regarding the behavior of
CAD faculty member Amjad Pervaiz, the spokesman said that Maliha Agha
had sent only an SMS to the vice chancellor who had summoned Pervaiz.
The latter had denied the allegation leveled against him, he added.
spokesman said if Maliha Agha could have submitted a written complaint,
the administration could had proceeded accordingly by law in a regular
manner. He said Maliha Agha should record her statement whatever she
wanted to say before the inquiry committee. He said that the current
administration had promoted the lady and appointed her as principal
which proved that the administration was not biased against her.
spokesman appealed to the honorable court to take notice of the issue,
asking if the matter was sub judice, why one party was conducting a
press conference for media trial of the second party.
spokesman said that, in another sub judice matter in the past, a
complainant had held a press conference and issued statements to the
media to defame the university administration in a baseless matter.
