The court after hearing the argument of the counsel directed the LDA to unseal the campus and directed the LDA DG to appear before the court by December 9.

LDA officials had sealed the BZU campus for carrying out commercial educational activity on Canal Road where the same was not allowed under the LDA's commercialisation policy.

Moreover, the Punjab Higher Education Department (HED) had got published advertisement/public notice, suspending functioning of the BZU Lahore campus as the conditional approval regarding establishment of this sun-campus in Lahore was withdrawn by Syndicate of BZU, Multan.

Punjab to refer BZU Lahore campus case to NAB: minister
Lahore: Education Minister Rana Mashhood has said that the provincial government will refer the Bahauddin Zakariya University, Lahore Campus, closure case to the National Accountability Bureau owing to the grave illegalities and the violation of rules.

He said the government had decided to close the BZU campus after viewing anomalies and illegalities. He was replying to the queries of the members during the Question-Hour session on Higher Education Department in the Punjab Assembly here Friday.

Earlier, Sheikh Allauddin raised the issue of the closure of the campus, saying the decision had put at risk the study career of 3,000 students. He said the government did not take notice of the campus in the beginning when the public sector departments were releasing advertisements in the newspapers regarding the admissions in this university and the fees were being collected. But the provincial government closed the campus after receiving the fee from the students, which was a great injustice.

Rana Mashhood said the BZU campus (Lahore), had failed to get 'No Objection Certificate' (NOC), from the Higher Education Commission (HEC), so it was declared illegal and had to be closed. He apprised the House that the BZU was about to start some new disciplines, including medical, engineering and law, in violation of the rules, without seeking permission from the Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC), Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC), and the Pakistan Bar Council (PBC), as per requirement. He announced that the provincial government was taking legal action against this fraud and the case would be referred to the National Accountability Bureau (NAB). He assured the House that fees of students would be returned to them as soon as possible. Punjab Assembly paid tributes to the first black president of South Africa Nelson Mandela. The House observed one-minute silence to pay homage to the late African leader.

Murray College allowed eight BS disciplines
Sailkot: Up to 2,000 students of the Government Murray College have been allowed by the University of Gujrat (UoG) to get admission to eight disciplines of the BS which were earlier banned by the university.

College Principal Prof Javed Akhtar Billah told reporters on Tuesday the UoG had relaxed the rules because of the intervention of Provincial Higher Education Department Secretary Tariq Mehmood Khan.

Earlier, the university had stopped the college from admitting candidates to BBA, botany, chemistry, information technology, physics, statistics, mathematics and zoology for the semester, Fall-2013. The ban was imposed because of the college's poor infrastructure such as labs, classrooms and faculty.

A notification dated Nov 26, 2013, by Dr Tahir Aqil, UoG registrar, states that on the recommendations of the Higher Education Department, the university has provisionally allowed the college to continue admissions to the eight disciplines.

The notification also advised the college management to fulfill the infrastructural requirements at the earliest, failing which might result into HEC non-recognition of degrees in these subjects.

The UoG did not remove the condition of NTS for the candidates of six other disciplines.

The students demanded that the UoG remove NTS condition. Dawn
