HYDERABAD:


The teachers’ representatives of public sector universities have prepared a draft proposal for amendment in the recently enacted Sindh Universities Law Act, 2013. In this regard, a meeting of Federation of All Pakistan Universities Academic Staff Association (FAPUASA), Sindh chapter, was held at Mehran University of Engineering and Technology, Jamshoro, on Friday.


FAPUASA’s provincial president, Dr Asad Raza Abidi, told The Express Tribune that the proposal will be shared with the government after which the future course of action will be decided. “If a response is elicited [from the government], FAPUASA will announce the future course of action after its September 12 meeting,” he said.


The teachers are demanding changes in the appointment procedure of the administrative staff, transfer of the NOC issuance authority to the vice chancellor and greater autonomy for the universities’ statutory bodies. “We approve of most of the clauses of the new law except for the provisions which provide greater control to the political government instead of the academic bodies,” said Abidi.
