Dawood College of Engineering Students Problems

Raza Adil Khan emailed from Commissioner Society, Abu-ul-Hasan Isphahani Road, Gulshan-e-Iqbal: The road behind Dawood College of Engineering and Technology (DCET) is littered with garbage. People living in nearby houses dump garbage almost every day on the said spot. They don’t realize that the students studying in DCET have to go through an ordeal as stink is coming out from it and sometimes it becomes unbearable to sit in the classroom. The town administration should take some concrete steps to address the issue on permanent basis.

Meanwhile, cleanliness condition in Commissioner Society is in shambles. Garbage and accumulated sewerage water in streets creates difficulties for pedestrians. The awful smell emanating from the overflowing manholes is also of great concern for the area residents. The sweepers of the city government only clean the main roads and never bother to sweep the streets of the locality.The news.

Government College University`s Young Journalists` Society

JOURNALISM is not only a profession but also a passion and young journalists can excel in this career through extensive readings and hectic reporting at the grass roots level.


Senior journalists and anchorpersons said this at a discussion on `Challenges confronting the fourth pillar of the state` organised by the Government College University`s Young Journalists` Society.


Journalist Rashid Rehman said the media had become a powerful player but “lifafa journalism” or paid reporting had also grown enormously. He said that it had become more and more challenging for editors to sift out genuine news from motivated and hoax stories.


Anchorperson and columnist Aftab Iqbal said maintaining the quality of news reports and upholding of journalistic values were the biggest challenge being faced by the media these days. “Truth should be presented – as much as it is needed,” he added.


GCU-YJS President Amina Ahmed said it was a matter of disgrace and embracement that Pakistan had been declared the most dangerous country for journalists.


GCU Vice-Chancellor Prof Dr Ikramul Haq and guest journalists presented certificates and shields to YJS executive committee members for the sessions 2010-2011 and 2009-2010. The YJS executive committee for the session 2010-2011 consisted of Amina Ahmed (president), Shakila Rehman (senior vice-president), Sheikh Mateen (senior vice-president), Arooma Shahzad (vice-president), and Rizwan Khan (general secretary). Other office-bearers include Azib Warraich, Javeria Liaqat, Sana Irshad, Kashif Fayyaz, Usama Safdar, Salman Mehmood, Saima Nawaz, Aqsa Khalid, Ushna Butt, Ajab Khan and Umair Asif.


Later, GCU Nazir Ahmed Music Society members Imran Fida, Saba Shafqat, Saad Farooq, Mohsin Abbas and Hassan performed and enthralled the audience at the musical night.Dawn.

Govt fails to adjust promoted college teachers

LAHORE:The Punjab government s failure to adjust 165 female college teachers after their promotion/ selection as assistant professor, despite a lapse of a couple of months, has been irking the teachers and their family members.
Earlier, the Punjab Higher Education Department had posted hundreds of teachers, both male and female, after their promotion/ selection as assistant professor (BS-18) from Lecturer (BS-17), but many female teachers refused to join and got extension on the pretext that the new place of their posting was not suitable for them. Subsequently, a summary was moved by the department to the Chief Minister s Secretariat, seeking his approval to adjust/post these teachers after conversion and down-gradation of posts, etc.


Sources privy to the developments said that the summary was approved by Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif last month but the issue has not yet been resolved. They said the Higher Education Department, in many of the cases, had recommended shifting of posts to adjust the female teachers but the same was tuned down by the Finance Department on the pretext the CM had not approved the same.


The sources said if the government failed to address the issue during the ongoing summer vacation, a large number of colleges of the province would be without teaching faculty, hampering academic activities and causing academic loss to students.


Talking to The News, a number of teachers awaiting postings said the delay was multiplying their troubles as, despite approval of the CM, the teachers were uncertain about their future. They demanded the chief minister take notice of the delay and provide relief to them so that they might resume their duties without any problem. The teachers seeking anonymity said many of the female teachers, after promotion to/ selection in the next grade, were transferred from their previous colleges to far away areas, which did not suit them according to the prevailing socio-economic circumstance.


It is pertinent to mention that the CM had formed a three-member committee comprising Punjab Higher Education secretary Haseeb Athar, provincial Minister for Education Mujtaba Shuja ur Rehman and Punjab Law Minister Rana Sana Ullah Khan which had recommended adjustment of female teachers as one-time consideration keeping in view their problems.


A Higher Education Department official, seeking anonymity, said the department had prepared its reply over objection of the Finance Department, and expected that the issue would be resolved soon. However, he added, the teachers were also responsible for their problems. Being government servants, they should go wherever they are sent, he maintained.


When contacted, Higher Education secretary Haseeb Athar said posting of teachers was a regular issue and the department had so far posted around 1,100 teachers after promotion in the ongoing stint. He said the problem surfaces each time a faculty member shows reluctance to be posted as per directions of the department. He, however, claimed that the issue related to posting of the female teachers would be solved within a week.The news.

Swabi college hostel a picture of neglect

Swabi college hostel a picture of neglect
Swabi, June Students staying in the only hostel of the Swabi Postgraduate College have been facing many problems due to negligence of the college administration.


The students told this correspondent on Tuesday that the hostel was the most neglected buildings of the college and needed immediate attention of the principal.


Usually the students leave the hostel during summer vacations but there are still some who have to stay to prepare for the examination. Majority of the students belong to the far-flung mountainous region of Gadoon Amazai and they have not option but to stay in the hostel despite almost no facilities.


The students alleged that the sanitation staff did not perform their duty and the dining hall was presenting a view of an archeological site as all the walls had been blackened by the smoke coming from the kitchen. The students said they had no option but to stay in the hostel.


The students have to rely on hand fans most of the time due to prolonged loadshedding, which has also badly affected their preparation for the upcoming BA/BSc examination. They said they were forced to pass sleepless nights due to hide and seek of the electricity.


The students said only one washroom was functioning in the hostel while the remaining had been chocked. “There is always a big line to the washroom early in the morning,” said one of the students. “An awful smell was emanating from there”, he complained.


A student, Gul Nawar Shah who hails from mountainous region of Utala said: “You are talking about the warden. We have even appealed to the ministers and other officials to direct the sanitation staff to clean the washrooms but to no avail”.


Mohammad Pervez Khan, the hostel warden, was not available for comment.


However another official said that a grant for bringing about improvement in the hostel had been approved. Dawn

Pakistan with an ideal geographic and strategic location serves as a corridor for the international supply routes of energy. Being a regional power house, the country possess opportunities of setting up the oil and gas pipelines as well as electricity grids within the region and with other neighbouring energy rich countries such as Iran, Tajikistan and Turkmenistan.

Pakistan’s energy requirements are increasing every year and to meet the rising demand of energy, the government of Pakistan is currently focused on diversification of gas supplies, reconstruction of hydropower plants, construction of underground gas storage facilities, development of oil exploration & production, tapping of renewable energy resources, attracting foreign investment and privatisation of state-owned assets.

Pakistan is responding to the energy development challenge by pursuing a wide range of domestic and imported energy projects and in the year 2008 – 2009, the Oil, Gas and Energy industry has attracted Foreign Investment of about US$ 796 million.

POGEE 2010

POGEE 2010

8th International Exhibition for the Energy Industry
(19 – 22 May 2010)

INTRODUCTION

Pakistan with an ideal geographic and strategic location serves as a corridor for the international supply routes of energy. Being a regional power house, the country possess opportunities of setting up the oil and gas pipelines as well as electricity grids within the region and with other neighbouring energy rich countries such as Iran, Tajikistan and Turkmenistan.

Pakistan’s energy requirements are increasing every year and to meet the rising demand of energy, the government of Pakistan is currently focused on diversification of gas supplies, reconstruction of hydropower plants, construction of underground gas storage facilities, development of oil exploration & production, tapping of renewable energy resources, attracting foreign investment and privatisation of state-owned assets.

Pakistan is responding to the energy development challenge by pursuing a wide range of domestic and imported energy projects and in the year 2008 – 2009, the Oil, Gas and Energy industry has attracted Foreign Investment of about US$ 796 million.

OIL & GAS INDUSTRY OVERVIEW

The location of Pakistan at the crossroads of Central Asia and the Arabian Sea has brought into spotlight its significance as an attractive market and a regional transit route for energy. Oil and Gas are the two major components of the energy mix which contribute 79% to the 63 million TOE of energy requirement in the country. The Government is formulating investor-friendly policies to increase the share of indigenous resources in the country. As a result of these policies, the Oil & Gas sector has attracted foreign direct investment of over US$ 700 million in 2008-09.

Pakistan is one of the largest consumers of gas in the region. It has a well developed and integrated infrastructure of transportation, distribution and utilisation of natural gas with 10,285 km of transmission and 93,961 km of distribution network. The two gas distribution companies plan to invest about US$ 400 million to increase the capacity of existing distribution network.

Up till now 725 wells have been drilled by various local and international exploration and production companies with 219 Oil & Gas discoveries, bringing the gas reserves to 30 TCF. An investment of US$ 1 billion was spent in drilling activities with 60 new wells drilled in 2008-09. At the same time, the crude oil recoverable reserves are estimated at 313 million barrels. The current production of oil is 66,532 barrels per day, whereas gas production is at 4 billion cubic feet per day.

Currently seven refineries are operating in the country with a refining capacity of 13 million tonnes per year.

Pakistan is now the largest CNG user in the world. Currently, 2700 CNG stations are operating with an investment of over US$ 1 billion, serving 2 million vehicles in the country.

LPG

LPG is environment-friendly and an economical fossil fuel available in the country. It is mainly used by the people living in remote areas, having no access to natural gas. Annual LPG consumption is 600,000 tonnes out of which 20% is met through imports. Total investment of US$ 200 million has already been made to develop the LPG supply infrastructure.

COAL

Pakistan has the 7th largest coal reserves in the world, estimated at over 185 billion tonnes of Coal. The country is producing 2.4 million tonnes of coal to meet the current coal consumption of 6.4 million tonnes while 4 million tonnes is imported to fulfill the energy requirement of the country. The Government has allocated an annual budget of US$ 25 million for the development of Thar Coal Infrastructure. Thar Coal project has the potential to cater to the increasing national energy requirement for decades with a relatively low unit cost.

THE SHOW – OIL & GAS PAKISTAN

Oil & Gas Pakistan is geared to be an exclusive trade exhibition, showcasing state-of-the-art equipment and machinery providing its participants with a comprehensive technical insight into the regional Oil & Gas industry.

POGEE, featuring Oil & Gas Pakistan and Power Technology Pakistan exhibitions, has established itself as the premier event catering to the Oil, Gas & Energy sectors. It serves as a convergence point for national and international companies to explore business opportunities in Pakistan . With unprecedented experience and reach, POGEE is the ideal venue to interact with key decision-makers and government officials, discuss areas of mutual cooperation, implement government plans and fulfill the future requirements of this industry in Pakistan.
