The Higher Education Commission (HEC) fired the consultants recruited by former chairman Dr Tariq Banuri.
In a recent development, the HEC did not extend the contracts of eight consultants who were hired on hefty salaries, perks and privileges. These consultants were getting salaries up to Rs 800,000.
According to the details, the contracts of 8 consultants were completed in December but the management of HEC decided not to renew their contract therefore all eight consultants have resigned on completion of their contracts.
Former Chairman HEC Dr Tariq Banuri hired these consultants in December 2019. Academia Magazine highlighted the hiring of favourite consultants on December 18, 2019. https://academiamag.com/hec-hires-consultants-on-high-salaries/
