PU Given Deadline To Verify Degrees
THE Higher Education Commission (HEC) has given a deadline of July 28, 2010 to The Punjab University (PU) to complete the verification of remaining 133 degrees of parliamentarians.
Earlier, the Commission had given a deadline of July 13, 2010 to PU to complete the verification of 313 degrees which the varsity could not achieve, as it could only send back 217 degrees out of which six were declared fake by the university.
Meanwhile, a Punjab University spokesman on Saturday said the varsity would send back around 65 more degrees after verification to the Higher Education Commission (HEC) by 20th or 21st July, adding the remaining 68 would be sent back to the HEC within a week’s time.
He further said earlier 217 degrees were sent back to the HEC after verification, adding not a single of these degrees had been received back by the PU.
