HIGHER EDUCATION DEPARTMENT GOVERNMENT OF THE PUNJAB 2011

Page No. 1 of 25

COLLEGE FUNDS INTRODUCTION


Colleges are domains of Higher Education. The education in Public Sector College is not free but it is highly subsidized. The students seeking admissions in these colleges have to pay three kinds of dues: 1. The Government Dues, which include nominal Admission fee, and a Registration fee for public examination to be administered by the relevant Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education or the University. 2. College Funds, which are mainly the refundable securities such as Library Security, Hostel Security etc. These are refunded to the students after completion of their respective sessions of academics. 3. College Funds known as Pupil or Students Funds, which include nominal funds like General (or Union) Fund, Magazine Fund, Helal-i-Ahmar Fund etc. These are levied to students in accordance with the instructions of the Government issued from time-to-time. The receipts collected under different Heads of these funds are non-refundable. They are utilized in providing various facilities to the students during their stay in college and are used in best interest of the students. Thus, in real terms, the only amounts charged in public college are these Students Funds. The utilization of these funds is governed by the Delegation of Financial Powers and Student Fund Rules / Instructions issued time-to-time by the Education Department. It is, therefore, imperative to frame improved and simplified operating procedures to increase the efficiencies of the colleges and to optimize utilization of these funds to generating more facilities for better academic environment.

PRESENT SITUATION
Initially very few College Funds were collected under these heads. With the passage of time and as the need generated, quite a number of additional funds were levied. Currently, as many as thirteen funds are the component of these student funds. There is variation in the rates with which these funds are being charged. Further, the colleges are making use of different notifications of the Government issued from timeto-time, for utilization of these funds and incurring expenditures under them. This status of affairs is resulting in a number of anomalies and difficulties in maintaining accounts and utilizing these funds.
