He warns that if salary and allowance are given against any posts beyond the rules, the universities will have to pay back the money

If laws are abused for personal interest in the universities, those responsible would face the music, University Grants Commission of Bangladesh (UGC) Chairman Prof Dr Kazi Shahidullah.

“The laws can’t be abused for personal interest in the universities,” he said while addressing the inaugural session of a two-day workshop titled “Budget Preparation and Implementation in Public Universities” at the UGC on Monday.

“They (the authorities) can’t bow down to any pressure at any level. In case of misuse of law, action would be taken against the guilty following the investigation,” he added

He said manpower recruitment beyond organogram as well as temporary, master roll, ad-hoc, contract and daily wage-based jobs will have to be stopped in the public universities. Sitting allowance cannot be given going beyond the rules. If salary and allowance are given against any posts going beyond the rules, the universities will have to pay back the money, he warned.

The UGC chairman urged the authorities to run the university following the existing laws, rules and regulations of the government and UGC.

He called upon the vice chancellors to create an environment in which the registrar, director and controller of finance and accounts of the university could work independently.

Dr Shahidullah said the financial discipline is not being followed properly in some universities of the country.

In this regard, he suggested the universities spending money as per the guidelines of the government and UGC to overcome the problem.

The UGC chief said work is underway to formulate a uniform financial policy to ensure financial discipline in the universities.
