VERSUS
1. Chairman, Pakistan Engineering Council, Ata-Turk Avenue, East
G-5/II, P.O. Box 1296, Islamabad.
2. Vice Chancellor, B.Z. University, Multan.
……RESPONDENTS
Writ Petition under Article 199 of
the Constitution of Islamic
Republic of Pakistan, 1973.

Respectfully Sheweth: -
1. That the names and addresses of the parties for the purpose of
service are the same as given.

2. That brief facts giving rise to the instant petition in order are to
facilitate the Hon’ble Court while adjudicating upon the dilemma
of the petitioners, time being the essence and resolution of
dispute directly before this Hon’ble Court makes it the only
efficacious remedy, hence, this petition is being filed. Briefly
stated that petitioners got admission the B.Z. University, Civil
Engineering Programme (1995-99).

3. That it is an admitted fact that Bahauddin Zakariya University


came into existence in 1975 with its own independent faculties
and departments and later on in the year 1992-93, the
Engineering College came into existence under the umbrella of
B.Z. University after the permission of all relevant authorities,
the 1st session of this college was 1993-97, 2nd session was 1994-
98, 3rd session was 1995-99, 4th session was 1996-2000 i.e. of the
present petitioners.

4. That grievances of the petitioners started when petitioners after


completing their B.Sc. Civil Engineering Programme, came to
know that this degree is not accredited with the Pakistan
Engineering Council and in this way, the petitioners met
respondent No. 2 that they have completed their B.Sc. Civil
Engineering Programme Session 1996-2000, which was
completed in the year 2002 and now petitioners are not able to
apply for any job as the degree of the B.Z. University without the
registration certificate from the Pakistan Engineering Council is
not being acceptable and in this way the petitioners came to know
that the dispute regarding the accreditation of Civil Engineering
Programme of B.Z. University with P.E.C. is under process
although University has applied for the registration of session
1996-2000. In this way, all the relevant documents with fees for
the registration have been deposited in the account of P.E.C. and
the matter is pending with P.E.C. since May, 2002.

Certificates of P.E.C. Civil Engineering Programme of


petitioners are ANNEX “A, A/1 TO A/7”.

5. That Pakistan Engineering Council which came into existence in


the year 1976, has an authority to register the Engineering
Programme of different universities and on the web site of
Pakistan Engineering Council and through different newspapers
after equal intervals P.E.C. describes about the accreditation of
different programmes of different universities of Pakistan and it
is very important to note that in the list of accredited universities
of Pakistan with P.E.C., University College of Engineering &
Technology Multan B.Z. University is also included.

Copy of newspaper clipping showing the list of accredited


universities/institutions is ANNEX “B”.

In this annex at serial No. 8 of the Universities of Punjab,


University College of Engineering & Technology Multan B.Z.
University is given. Similarly, students were provided by the
University at the time of admission, list of accredited
universities.

Copy of List is ANNEX “C”.

6. That the petitioners came to the knowledge that in April, 1999,


Pakistan Engineering Council visited the University College of
Engineering & Technology and after thorough check-up of the
college, certain deficiencies were pointed out and short term and
long term measures were advised by the P.E.C. to U.C.E.T. B.Z.
University, Multan.

Copy of the letter dated 14.4.99 is ANNEX “D”.


At the end of the long term measures, P.E.C. advised: -

“The deficiencies of new final year and the remaining


classes shall be made up within their schedule duration
considering the above guide lines.”

7. That it is very much important to note that like session 1993-97,


1994-98, 1995-99, the session of the petitioners also gone
through all those practical and lectures at Taxila University and
U.E.T. Lahore, which were recommended and advised by P.E.C.,
because of the lacking in the library assistance and staff, so as to
fill up the deficiencies.

8. That the petitioners are aggrieved from the behaviour of P.E.C.


that petitioners have completed their B.Sc. Programme as per
advised letters on April, 14, 1999 and the applications are
pending before respondent No. 1 for the registration of the
petitioners since May 2002 and petitioners’ degrees are not being
registered with P.E.C.

9. That since the petitioners have completed their B.Sc. Civil


Engineering Programme, petitioners have failed to apply against
the posts of Civil Engineers in Sui Gas, MES Nespak, Railway
and Highway Departments alongwith so many seats advertised in
the private sector during February 2002 to December, 2002,
because of the non-registration with P.E.C. Petitioners’ case is
similar to the case of Muhammad Aslam Vs. P.E.C and Kashif
Shamim and others Vs. P.E.C. & others in W.P. No. 1205/01,
3073/01; and Amin Iqbal etc. Vs. Chairman P.E.C. in W.P. No.
9377/02 in which His Lordship Mr. Justice Muhammad Khalid
Alvi has admitted the petitions for regular hearing and
provisional registration numbers have been directed to be allotted
to the petitioners.

Copies of orders are ANNEX “E, E/1 & E/2”.

10.That petitioners have approached this Hon’ble Court with clean


hands and this is the vested right of the petitioners that their
degrees must be ascertained and they must be given the
registration numbers with P.E.C. as there is no fault at their end
and everything is being done because of the non-serious attitude
of the Engineering College of the B.Z. University Multan as they
are not fulfilling the long term measures as advised by P.E.C. In
this regard, letter dated 15.6.02 is quite relevant in which P.E.C.
has directed the Vice Chancellor, B.Z. University to improve the
weaknesses. It was observed by the visiting team of P.E.C. which
visited the college on 9.2.02 and in this regard paragraph-H is
quite important to note and quite important to show the
irresponsible behaviour of the respondent No. 2 in which the
innocent students are suffering and a man of ordinary prudence
can feel the pain that what would be the feeling of a student who
has a degree of B.Sc. Civil Engineering Programme from a
recognized university of Pakistan, which has no value without its
registration with P.E.C.

Copy of letter dated 15.6.02 is ANNEX “F”.

11.That petitioners have completed their B.Sc. Civil Engineering


Programme as per direction of P.E.C. This is the right of the
petitioners that their degrees must be accredited and they must be
given the registration certificates so that the petitioners can be
able to apply for any post in Govt. Sector or in the private Sector.

Therefore

Relying upon the above mentioned submissions,


it is most respectfully prayed that the present petition
may kindly be accepted and respondent No. 1 may
kindly be directed to issue registration certificates to the
petitioners as were issued to the petitioners of W.P. No.
1205/01, W.P. No. 3073/01 and W.P. No. 9377/02 as the
case of the petitioners is similar to that of the above
mentioned petitioners and this is the fundamental right
of the petitioners that they should be given the similar
treatment.
It is also prayed that respondent No. 2 may also
be directed to fulfill the long term deficiencies as
directed by P.E.C. to avoid any type of complication
and problems for the students in future.
It is further prayed that the respondent No. 1 may
kindly be asked that why inspite of their announcement
through newspaper clipping and through internet, they
are not accrediting the students of Bahauddin Zakariya
University, Civil Engineering Programme when they
have mentioned that University College of B.Z.
University is accredited with it.
Any other relief to which the petitioners may be
found entitled may graciously be granted to the
petitioners in the interest of justice.
