There is a great debate in Pakistan about fake degrees; very few people talk about the state of affairs in higher education institutions. University of Education is an alarming example of this situation. The administration of the University is in the hand of retired and incompetent people. Apart from a lot of complaints from students, nobody bothers to take action against them. What kind of educational standard we can expect from following administration:
§ Vice Chancellor (Care Taker) Mrs. Farhat Saleem – Not eligible for even university Associate Processor; Two unsettled objections of financial embezzlement against her of amount Rs. 2,36,32,412/ = and Rs. 2,85,116/= (Director General Audit Punjab had framed these objections.
§ Acting Registrar Mr. Bashir Ahmed (On Contract) – Retired DCO; No prior experience of university administration; Appointed as Additional Director Admin; Audit para against his appointment
§ Controller Examination(Acting) Dr. Shaban Bhatti (On contract); Retired Professor; Facing HEC Enquiry; Audit objection against his appointment as controller
§ Treasurer (Acting) Mr. Muhammad Arif – Appointed as Additional Director Finance but working as Treasurer; Audit para against his appointment as Treasure; Many complaints against him

§ In charge Security Mr. Aleem Khan (On contract) – Retired Major from Pak Army
§ Ph. D. Supervisor of Mrs. Farhat Saleem Dr. Ibrahim Khalid (On contract) – Retired Professor
The appointment of retired personals are against HEC, Punjab Government regulations and comes under the ambit of the observation of the Hounorable Supreme Court of Pakistan. Who is going to take action? this is a serious question.
