Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Governor/chancellor of universities Shah Farman has lifted a ban on having selection boards in the public sector universities of the province, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Friday.

The unbanning will fill the overdue recruitments needed for the smooth operationalization of the varsities as well.   

Chancellor’s office notified that the ban on fresh recruitments during the last six months of the vice-chancellors’ tenure would remain intact till further orders.

“The ban on selection boards during the last six months of the vice-chancellors had been imposed in 2019, and thus selection boards could not be conducted in various universities so far,” the notification reads.

As a result, the vacancies in a number of universities had been advertised in 2018 but could not be filled.
