Govt decides to verify degrees of PTV, Radio Pakistan employees

Federal Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry has directed the authorities to form a board for verification of the qualification degrees of employees appointed in Radio Pakistan and Pakistan Television.
The degrees of the employees who were appointed after 2008, when the Pakistan People Party (PPP) formed the federal government, will be verified.
A three- member board headed by Director General internal publicity wing Ministry of Information will carry out the verification process which will be started from senior officials. The minister has given one month to complete the process.
The officers and employees, who will be found involved in fake degrees will have to deposit all received salaries. Besides, notices will also be served on the officers who appointed them.

Earlier, Fawad Chaudhry had said that PPP destroyed all institutions including Pakistan Broadcasting Corporation (PBC) by filling in its own cronies, adding that in three days Khursheed Shah filled 800 people only in Radio which cost seven crores (70 million) additional burden.
In September, the PTI government also faced strong response from the Radio Pakistan employees over a proposal to shift the headquarters and give the existing premises on a long-term lease.
The government, however, had to succumb to the pressure as it withdrew its plan to lease the premises of Radio Pakistan.
