Dera ismail khan - Chairman Council meeting of Gomal University was held here on Wednesday, stressing austerity measures to overcome the financial burden the university was facing on account of massive electricity bills.
Vice Chancellor Gomal University Professor Dr. Shakibullah chaired the meeting, which was attended by deans, directors, and administrative officers of all departments, including registrar Dr. Muhammad Shoaib.
During the meeting, Vice Chancellor Prof. Dr. Shakibullah said it was high time we took tough decisions to put the university on the path of development and there was a need to pursue measures that help to overcome the financial liability of paying massive electricity bills each month.
As part of such measures, he said that the VC office as well as other offices of the university had to avoid using air conditioners, and one had to pay a Rs 50,000 fine if he or she violated the ban. He directed the registrar of the university to immediately issue a formal notification in this regard. He urged the university’s employees to continue working with the same high spirit of dedication to take the university to the heights of development.
He also suggested that certain departments should put more energy into increasing the number of students by launching new programs, enabling the university to increase the salaries of teachers of the department concerned.
