HONOURABLE CHIEF JUSTICE OF PAKISTAN.
SUBJECT: Sir, We want to invite your attention towards an important Educational Problem, because you have solved a lot of problems. But our problem still stands despite having being solved by all the Govt. Departments. We would like to give you a brief history of the issue so that it becomes easier for you to solve our problem. Sir, Govt. of Pakistan, on the great demand of Diploma Engineers, introduced BTech (Pass/Honors) vide its Letter No 15-29/73-Tech dated 26-10-1973 for their higher education and the course was started in Govt. Colleges Of Technology Karachi, Lahore, Peshawar, Multan and these colleges were affiliated to their respective Universities and also with private universities . 1According to the decision of Pakistan Govt. all Universities of Engineering and Technologies not only kept the standard of these courses up to that of B.Sc Engineering But also announced this Degree to be equivalent to B.Sc Engineering vide Letter No 3688 dated 15-10-1980. 2All four Provincial Education Ministries approved that it is equivalent to B.Sc Engineering and issued a Notification vide Letter No l-12/ 77(P-lI) dated 12-11-1980 by Punjab Education Ministry. 3Pakistan Engineering Council approved this Degree to be equivalent to B.Sc Engineering vide Letter No PEC/8/Piploma dated 30-04-1981. 4According to the Higher Education Commission, B-Tech (Hons) is an equivalent degree to B.Sc Engineering. Letters No. 8-39 Acad/81-737 dated 17-12-1981, 8-39/Acad/81- 361. dated 10-02-1990, 8-36/UGC-AAC/2001/65 dated 01-05-2001, 8-39/ Acad/81-41 dated 04-01-2002, 5Pakistan National Assembly also approved it equivalent to B.Sc Engineering vide Letter No 80/8S-Q dated 23-10-1985. APPEAL FOR REGISTRATION OF B.TECH (HONS) GRADUATES TO P.E.C, AS PROFESSIONAL ENGINEERS.

But for unknown reasons Pakistan Engineering Council (P.E.C) refused to register the B-Tech (Honors) Graduates . Due to which these Graduates are being deprived of the fruits of Engineering.

Sir Supreme Court of Pakistan has also announced its decision in favour of the B-Tech (Hons) (Review Petition No. 52 of 1993).
Sir. Lahore High Court has also announced its decision in favour of the B-Tech (Hons) ( Review Petition No 7626/ 99 ). But despite of all the decisions and notifications issued by various competent organizations/Authorities . The graduates are in a hopeless situation as their degree is nothing but except piece of paper, because Registration to Pakistan Engineering Council is a must for every department along with the Engineering Degree, despite the fact that according to the Office Order No F,4-80/2002-R dated 10-12-2002 of Federal Public Service Commission, Registration to the P.E.C. is not necessary but only an equivalence to the Higher Education Commission is a must. Sir, keeping in view all these facts mentioned above , it is a result of the obstinacy of P.E.C. the decision of honorable departments of Govt. of Pakistan are being ruined, And more than fifty thousands graduates, who Invested ' their Valuable capital and time to acquire this degree, are psychologically upset and many of them have died without getting the reward of their higher education. Sir, it is therefore humbly requested to kindly take action to save the future of thousands of B-Tech (H) graduates & thousands of those who are still doing this course in Govt and private universities . Sir, we have the following suggestions for the Govt & we hope that our suggestions will be brought to the notice of the concerned bodies before the youth of Pakistan refused to acquire the Technical education. 1. According to the remarks of Supreme Court " Is Engineering Council superior to the Govt. of Pakistan". Engineering Council should be directed to consider B-Tech (Hons) equivalent to B.Sc Engineering as per notifications and approvals of all the referred departments, and Register the B-Tech (Hons) Graduates as Professional Engineers. And any obstacle in this case may kindly be removed.

2. B-Tech. (Hons) Graduates should be given opportunities to Higher Education, i.e. M.Sc Engineering Or M.S. from Govt./private Universities .

3. The name of Pakistan Engineering Council should kindly be changed to Pakistan Council of Engineering and Technology. 4. It is also requested to please take action against the Pakistan Engineering Council who have loss the revenue of billion of rupees of Pakistan in lieu of Registration and annual fee.
If the above could not be possible for the Govt. of Pakistan then

Pakistan Council of Technology may kindly be established to secure the
future of thousands of students who are still studying the course from Govt. as well as Private Universities. If the council is established Millions of millions Rupees revenue will be received from the students in the shape of Annual Registration fee . We hope that this APPEAL will receive favorable consideration.

Yours Truly
