Provincial Education and Culture Minister Syed Sardar Shah while presiding over the meeting of Sindh College Education Department, decided to remove the illegal occupation of government college buildings and plots in the province.

The meeting was attended by Secretary Colleges Ahmad Bakhsh Narejo, Director General Colleges Muhammad Ali Manjhi and others.

Minister directed that all types of illegal occupation of buildings and plots of government colleges should be removed. “Steps should also be taken to eliminate encroachments around colleges”, he added.

He directed the Secretary to write letters to the Commissioners and Deputy Commissioners in this regard.

It was also decided that the budget of the upcoming colleges will be decided according to the enrollment ratio. The budget of those colleges will be enhanced where the admission ratio will be improved.

Sardar Shah directed that a strategy should be devised to protect the buildings of future colleges from weather effects. “Proposals should be invited to protect the buildings of the colleges from weather effects and to create safe buildings for the students.”

He said that principals of government colleges should be removed from their responsibilities if their performance does not improve.

It was also decided in principle that subject-based lecturers will be appointed in future colleges. The minister directed that unnecessary posts/positions in the service structure of colleges should be eliminated. “Unnecessary posts sanctioned in old times should be eliminated and proposals should be made on the basis of need.”

The education minister directed further that the universities be contacted regarding the scholarships of the Sindh Education Endowment Fund Trust. “Universities are not meeting the target of awarding scholarships as per the prescribed number. In case the number of scholarships is not fulfilled by the universities, the scholarship quota should be given to other universities.”

Scholarships of Sindh Education Endowment Fund Trust established by the Government of Sindh are the right of meritorious and deserving students. Minister directed that letters should also be written to the universities to conduct an effective awareness campaign regarding the scholarship. (PR)
