KOT RADHA KISHAN - The hiring of instructors at Government Technical Training Centre (GTTC) are totally bogus and in sheer violation of the merit policy of the Punjab government, The Nation learnt reliably.
The Punjab government, in collaboration with the National Vocational and Technical Education Commission (Navtec), established the Technical Training Centre two years ago to impart training to female students in different skills. Similarly, scholarship worth Rs2,000 were also offered to students who took admission in computer, food and tailoring disciplines. However, these scholarships were disconnected without any reason.
The sources claimed that gravity of the negligence and favouritism could be gauged from the fact that Zaibun Nisa had been hired as Computer Instructor, a post for which three years diploma in computer applications was mandatory but she possessed a three months computer certificate which was bogus.
Similarly, Food Instructor Samina also does not have a relevant diploma and the same is case of Tailoring Instructor Aamina,” they pointed out.
Moreover, the citizens pinned their hopes on GTTC In-charge Aasima Shabbir for betterment she failed to bring any change, shattering the expectations of the police only.
The sources claimed that political pressure had crippled the institution while one could find its In-charge Aasima busy all the time making political contacts, doing nothing for the betterment of the institution.
The locals and students have appealed to the Punjab chief minister and the TEVTA chairman to take stock of the situation and ordered a probe into matter to save the GTTC from a complete collapse.
