KU officers not to get promotions if retirement is due shortly

Karachi: The Karachi University syndicate, in a meeting chaired by Vice Chancellor Prof. Dr. Muhammad Qaisar, has decided that the nonteaching employees of university in grade 17 or above will not be promoted to next higher grade if their retirement is due shortly.

It further decided that the employees of university could move the high court only if they had approached all other forums under the government rules for their service matters. However this decision will not apply in such cases where human rights have been violated, a KU release said on Sunday.

The syndicate gave approval to establishing its own electricity system on Build, Operate and Transfer BOT basis, for which tenders will soon be invited.

It approved Director Finance’s recommendation of encashment of 365 day leave instead of 180 days at the time of retirement. Establishing an endowment fund was also approved by the syndicate.
