Senate body unanimously detach SZAB university detached from PIMS

Islamabad: A meeting of Senate Standing Committee on Cabinet held here Wednesday unanimously approved amendment bill 2017 to detach Shaheed Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto (SZAB )university from Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS).
Senator Talha Mehmood presided over the meeting, which approved separating of Shaheed Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto university from PIMS while National Assembly has already approved it.
On this occasion, members of the committee adopted a unanimous stance that PIMS and University must have separate identity while Dr. Tariq Fazal Chaudhry informed the meeting that a letter has been written to Capital Development Authority (CDA) regarding allotment of land to the university. When 250 kanal land is being provided for establishment of Nursing college in Islamabad why we will not give land for setting up own university, he added.
Senator Hamdullah said it was hardest to find any single example in Pakistan that hospital was transformed into university. He posed a question that doctors after fulfilling rules and regulations, quota and SR etc are transferring to PIMS what would be the future of these doctors.
Replying to him, Dr. Tariq Fazal assured that these doctors would be regularized and none would be sent back. He informed that numbers of vacancies were lying vacant in PIMS and recruitment on the said posts would be made through FPSC. He said it was mandatory for recruitment to detach university from PIMS.
