Usama Cheema Faisalabad Corruption in VarsitySindh University is one of the largest university of Sindh province. Recently, it has 32,000 students enrolled. But it is still facing basic facilities (e.g; potable water, lack of chairs in
classrooms, fans, hostile issues, infrastructure and WiFi connection) due to corruption. Currently, V.C and other staff is charged with corruption of 73 crore which is reason behind bad reputation of varsity. More than 60 departments are being offered by university for Graduation, Masters, M.Phil and Ph.D level. But mostly departments in University are facing shortage of classrooms and management.

vigorous punishment so as to prevent future like-minded acts.
