The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) government in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) has once turned into the subject of feedback over the proliferation of false authority measurements after errors between the region’s Higher Education Department and the Higher Education Commission (HEC) were uncovered.
No less than five establishments recorded as colleges in a current report discharged in July by the commonplace government’s Higher Education Management Information Sector (HEMIS) cell, are not perceived by the HEC, Pakistan Today has learnt. Then, one of the three that have been sanctioned on their watch is a basic instance of updating a current sub grounds.
The HEMIS report has asserted that under the PTI-drove government, nine open division colleges were made. Notwithstanding, the HEC has affirmed to Pakistan Today that lone three colleges have been given contracts in the previous four years. The other five included the rundown are either forming into, or are not colleges by any means.
The ninth college (Swabi Women’s University) being guaranteed by the PTI, was made amid the first ANP-PPP government in 2012, according to HEC.
In the mean time, the five other ‘colleges’ said in the HEMIS cell report are largely either overseen by an undertaking chief with no bad habit chancellor, or are essentially sub grounds of more established colleges set up numerous years prior.
The PTI, nonetheless, has been touting their administration’s gathered ‘accomplishments’ with about the majority of their official twitter accounts, including the fundamental party twitter handle, posting photos of the HEMIS report asserting that they have set up nine colleges instead of the four authorized by the HEC.

The cases appear to be a final desperate attempt to by one means or another outperform the Awami National Party’s (ANP) record count of eight colleges accepting contracts in their legislature, particularly in the background of media reports of the PTI government having assembled none of the 29 degree schools that it had affirmed since 2013.
As indicated by HEC subtle elements, current rundown of state funded colleges in the KP is contained 25 colleges. Out of these, the ones given contracts and officialised as colleges in their own particular right incorporate the Abbottabad University of Science and Technology, Abbottabad (2015), Women University Swabi (2015), Shuhada-e-Army Public School University of Technology, Nowshera (2016) and the Women University Mardan (2016).
Then again, the rundown delivered by the HEMIS cell refers to an aggregate of 29 colleges, adding around five to the gathered count of ‘colleges established’ amid the PTI’s residency in KP. These incorporate University of Buner, University of Chitral, University of Agriculture, D.I.Khan, University of Engineering and Technology, Mardan and University of Science and Technology, Lakki Marwat.
While without a doubt the KP government has to be sure offered sanctions to the initial four colleges in the rundown, both the University of Buner and the University of Chitral have just been indicated at being given contracts and are not authoritatively colleges. They are presently under the supervision of a chief heading a board of trustees which is still during the time spent employing staff and setting up the necessities.
The Agricultural University Dera Ismail Khan does not by any means exist, and is just a division inside Dera Ismail Khan’s Gomal University, and not even a sub-grounds. UET Mardan is likewise simply a sub grounds of UET Peshawar and the same is the situation with University of Science and Technology, Lakki Marwat which is a sub grounds of the Bannu based college.
Now, it is applicable to take note of that of alternate colleges that really have been given sanction by the present government, the Abbottabad University of Science and Technology was set up in 2008 as a sub-grounds of Hazara University.. For them to attempt and assume acknowledgment for changing the name of a grounds effectively settled and giving it a college sanction is a deception similarly just like the credit ANP takes for building up the Islamia College University, which was at that point one of the most seasoned foundations of higher learning in the nation.
