LHC Rawalpindi Bench issues notice to NUML.
RAWALPINDI, September 19, 2010 (Frontier Star): Mrs. S. Safdar trough her Lawyer Barrister Afzal Hussain filed a writ petition against the National University of Modern Language (NUML) trough its Rector Brig (Retd) Aziz Ahmed, which was hired by Justice Ejaz Chaudry of Lahore High Court, Rawalpindi bench, who had issued notice to the university to file a report on next hearing dated 29-09-10. The petitioner remained a student of MBA AT NUML from January 2004to December 2005 and had passed all the 24 modules of the MBA and had submitted the thesis/project to her supervisor before the December 2006, however, her supervisor proposed amendments in thesis. When petitioner went to submit the corrected copy of her thesis the varsity staff told her that period for submission of thesis had lapsed and they can not accept her thesis and the petitioner was directed to file an application to the competent authority of the varsity. Petitioner filed the application but same was decided after a delay of approximately two and half year and now the varsity has included that period in calculation of late submission fee (fine) hence a fine of RS 167700 is imposed on the petitioner. The petitioner through her Lawyer adopted before the court that the petitioner is snot responsible for the delay on varsity's part and it is an unjust and unfair fine under the disguise of late submission fee. Barrister Afzal further said that the total fee of the MBA was approximately RS 127000 and fine imposed 167000, which speak for itself that it is capricious and arbitrary use of authority The petitioner challenges the imposition of hefty fine. Justice Ijaz Chaudry had issued notice to the NUML and ordered NUML file a report and para-wise comments and fixed on next hearing.
