Government of the Punjab Finance Department has issued Notification No. FD.SR-I-10-6/85 dated 28th April 2014 in connection with Clarification of Grant of M.Phil Allowance.
It is continuation of this department letter of even number dated 24-02-2010. It is clarified as under on received certain queries from different quarters regarding the admissibility of M.Phil/special allowance equivalent 50% of Ph.D allowance.
Greatly needed the accuracy of this notification because several departments were many illusions occur?
- Who is the Competent Authority for the grant of M.Phil/special allowance?
- Who is the Competent Authority to determine the equivalence of various degrees with M.Phil degree for the grant of M.Phil/special allowance?
- Who is entitled for the grant of M.Phil/special allowance?
- Whether M.Phil/special allowance is admissible contract employees otherwise?
Hopefully now obscuring all departments regarding the notification shall be turned away.
Several universities are based in Pakistan, has almost all the M. Phil and Ph.D programs.
Instead, many private universities M.Phil & Ph.D Programme effectiveness and transparency are losing, many reasons for this, for example, Private colleges affiliation without roles & regulation, a lack of faculty to private colleges (i.e some places masters reader having M.Phil), independent colleges, etc. there are many other factors also need to be modified. Special thanks to Mr. Muhammad Awais for the post.
