During the operation, Siddiqui said a KMC city warden was injured when the blinds fell on him. “The warden was immediately transferred to the hospital,” he said. In the East District, anti-encroachment operations were carried out in the areas of Jalan Tariq, Jalan Jamshed, Guru Mandir and the Muslim Community of Sindhi.

After two years, finally KU began conducting exams for KMDC students | Instant News

The Karachi University Examination Department will begin conducting the 2019 MBBS and BDS Annual Examinations today for Karachi Medical and Dental College (KMDC) students.

KMDC is the only medical college in Karachi that is affiliated with KU. However, university administrators have been unable to take the annual exams since 2019. According to the affected candidates, the students have repeatedly come to the university administration and relevant officials to resolve the issue, but they have not been heard.

However, the students last month came to the Sindh High Court, after which the KU examining department agreed to conduct annual examinations for students enrolled in MBBS and BDS in three batches, namely the first year, the second year, and the third year. In addition, students who have secured admission to the MBBS and BDS programs in January 2019 will appear on the annual exam for the first time.

According to the KU Controller Test, Dr Syed Zafar Hussain, the main obstacle in carrying out the exam was the Pakistan Medical and Dental Council because the examination system at the college was based on a semester system which was later changed to an annual system. This ambiguity, he said, resulted in the exam being delayed, and the second reason was that the higher education administration submitted the exam form with a cover letter on August 1, 2020, and that is why the exam has been late for the last two years.

However he did clarify that the university is committed to covering the loss of one year of students for which the university cannot take the exam. If the principal of the KMDC school convinces the university administration to carry out further examinations, the university will cooperate fully, he added.
