  • Axact mainly runs some 3 type of Soft ware application businesses :-

    (1) AXACT Back End services for Education

    (2) AXACT Research soft ware and

    (3) AXACT Design soft ware...

    For above Axact has employed some 5000 Pakistani talented youth. If FIA is that concerned about education department of Axact business..to shut it down,they may shut education department only and must NOT shut the other departments where thousands of employees work,

    FIA has also sealed all Axact bank accounts which means thousands of Employees will not get their wages<>

    <>What kind of this govt is? Will this govt be paying all these affecties till they remain laid off...? ABSURD

    Uncovering the multi-million dollar fake degree industry

    •Degree mills sell bogus qualifications online, often without requiring any study

    •An expert says at least 100,000 fake degrees are sold in the U.S. each year

    •Degree mills can be highly sophisticated and hard for authorities to shut down

    London, England (CNN) -- With competition still fierce in the jobs market, some people might be tempted to beef up their resume by buying a fake degree.

    The problem of fake degrees is nothing new, but the Internet has made it easier than ever to obtain a bogus qualification.

    George Gollin, a board member of the U.S.-based Council for Higher Education Accreditation, told CNN he estimates that more than 100,000 fake degrees are sold each year in the U.S. alone. Of those, around one third are postgraduate degrees. He added that a bogus degree will typically cost $1,000.

    By trade, Gollin is a physics professor at the University of Illinois. He first became interested in degree mills after being spammed with offers of fake college degrees.

    According to a story in Wired Magazine, his interest turned to outrage after he stumbled upon news of a forensic psychologist who had purchased her degree. "Here's this person who's untrained doing therapeutic interventions," he told Wired. "I thought, 'Jesus, this is really bad.'"

    The institutions that sell these fake qualifications are known as either diploma mills or degree mills. Diploma mills issue fraudulent diplomas supposedly granted by real universities, while degree mills pose as real universities.

    According to Gollin, setting up a degree mill is simply a matter of creating a Web site that looks like it belongs to a genuine university. The Web site includes a way for customers to pay for their qualifications online and a place for prospective employers to contact to verify the degree is genuine.

    Some degree mills award degrees on the basis of the buyer's supposed "life experience," while others require a small amount of coursework. One degree mill required about a week's worth of coursework to earn a masters degree.

    Gollin said this token coursework is largely for the customers' benefit -- to help them convince themselves they have earned their qualification.

    While some people might be duped into believing they are obtaining a legitimate qualification, Gollin said that almost everyone buying from a degree mill knows they are getting a fake.

    "Anyone who's had any contact with a real college curriculum knows how hard you have to work," Gollin told CNN. "If you can get a whole PhD over the course of one week and you don't know that's not legitimate, then you're just dumb."

    But for some, knowingly buying a fake degree is an easy way of improving their job prospects.

    "Generally, fake degrees are usually bought for economic advantage for people who are seeking promotion or seeking to get jobs where the employer wants them to have a degree," Gollin told CNN.

    Those people come from all walks of life. Gollin gave the example of one American who bought a Bachelor's degree in nuclear engineering, and who's now working in the control room of a nuclear power plant.

    He also cited a U.S. degree mill that sells fake PhDs to real medical doctors for $10,000, and added that unqualified doctors have been jailed in the U.S. after attempting to practice medicine with a medical degree bought online.

    According to the story in Wired, Gollin was instrumental in the case brought against a degree mill which operated various bogus universities, including Saint Regis University.

    The "Saint Regis" degree mill was estimated to have made $7 million from selling fake qualifications to more than some 9,600 customers in 131 countries, according to Wired.

    In 2008, the couple behind the Saint Regis degree mill were each jailed for three years.

    In the U.S., and other countries, it is illegal to issue what purports to be a university degree without the approval of a government agency. But degree mills are often set up in such a way that makes it very hard to track down the people running the operation.

    Gollin warned that degree mills are becoming increasingly sophisticated, often carrying official-seeming accreditation that makes them appear to be genuine universities. The catch is that the accreditation is supplied by bogus organizations -- "accreditation mills."

    If it's difficult for the authorities to keep tabs on the degree mills, it can be even harder for employers to spot if a potential employee has fake qualifications, but Gollin said there are steps that employers can take to guard against fraudsters.

    Many countries have government-run web sites where you can easily check if a university is officially accredited. But because diploma mills offer fake degrees from real universities, it is essential that employers also check with someone at the university that the degree was actually issued.

  • This drama of fake degrees could open a pindora box of many politicians too. That will be quite interesting, if so.



  • Has Axact violated any law ? Whats the case against it ?



  • It is not about Axact .. It is About BOL....

    No one had problem with Axact ...until they started BOL..





  • "Has Axact violated any law ? Whats the case against it ?"

    Most probably, Axact leadership didn't follow the "golden rule" in Pakistan of giving bribery to all as is championed and followed by the richest tycoon of Pakistan, MR.



  • The URL given in my last post is actually this:

  • I maybe wrong but in my point of view Axact is doing the business of fake degrees and it should be punished for that. Regarding bol, people say this is the conspiracy of geo and ary against bol. My question is that why would newyork times write an article on the request of Geo or Ary? Newyork times doesn't listen to the American president and they will write a column for Pakistani channels? Isn't it absurd?



  • Latest: An FIR has been lodged. Shoaib Ahmed Shaikh with few others has been arrested. The game has begun. Shoaib Sheikh is the Chairman and CEO of EXACT. He and his wife hold very few shares of this company. Major shareholders are Dubai based off-shore companies which are still unknown.

    So the real culprits are still "unknown". This billion dollar scandal is not simply sale proceeds of fake degrees. In fact only three cases of complaints of fake degrees have been reported. The picture behind the screen, in my opinion, is much much bigger and serious. Ch. Nisar thinks a huge fish is about to come in his net. Whatever, Shoaib Sheikh is just a small part of this whole clandestine game plan. I will not be surprised if Gen. (Rtd.) Musharraf is linked in this scandal.





  • Even Apple and Microsoft will struggle when gov't starts digging their books. That's why they settle all their disputes outside court. Bol made a huge mistake by delaying their launch. If they were on air 6 months ago both Bol and Axact would have easily avoided all this. Fake degrees and porn sites are cheap attacks for public consumption. The real challenge for Axact is to justify it's spending. Now that Shohaib Seikh is under remand don't be surprised if he starts speaking like Saulat Mirza.





  • میڈیا مالکان کی جانب سے قاری اور ناظر کا بدترین استحصال

    چند دن پہلے تک پاکستان میں خبروں کا سب سے بڑا موضوع ایگزیکٹ ایشو تھا۔ ہر روز ایف آئی اے کی تحقیقات، گرفتاریوں اور برامدگیوں کی خبروں سے ٹی وی چینلز کے تمام بلیٹن اور اخبارات کا پورا پہلا صفحہ بھرا ہوا ہوتا تھا۔ ہر چند لمحوں بعد چیختی چنگاڑتی بریکنگ نیوز ٹی وی سیکرینز پر نمودار ہو رہی تھیں۔ ایسے لگ رہا تھا کہ دنیا میں پائی جانے والی تمام بُرائیوں اور خرابیوں کی جڑیں ایگزیکٹ کے دفتر میں سے مل گئی ہیں۔ اخبارات نے تو بول اور ایگزیکٹ کے بارے میں حقائق سے عوام کو آگاہ کرنے کے لئے خبروں سے ہٹ کر پورے صفحے کا سپلیمنٹ تک چھاپ دیا۔

    پھر ہر طرف اچانک خاموشی چھا گئی۔ بریکنگ نیوز اور ہیڈلائنز سے ایگزیکٹ کا ایشو غائب ہو گیا؟؟

    یہ اس لئے ہوا کہ اب خبریں ایگزیکٹ کے حق میں آنا شروع ہوگئی تھیں، جنھیں بلیک آوٹ کیا جا رہا ہے۔ ایف آئی اے کے ڈی جی نے سینٹ کی قائمہ کمیٹی برائے داخلہ میں کھل کر کہہ دیا کہ تمام تر تحقیقات کے باوجود ایگزیکٹ کے خلاف کوئی ثبوت نہیں مل سکا ہے۔ صورتحال یہ ہے جن کے دفتر سے لاکھوں جعلی ڈگریوں کی برامدگی کی خبریں چلائی گئی تھی، اُن پر ایف آئی اے فرد جرم عائد کرنے سے ہچکچا رہی ہے۔ جج صاحب کی بار بار تنبیہ پر بھی چالان پیش نہیں کیا جا رہا۔ اب تو جج صاحب نے ایف آئی اے کو آخری مہلت دی ہے، اگر دس دن کے اندر چالان جمع نہ کرایا تو عدالت عبوری چالان پر ہی ٹرائیل شروع کر دے گی۔ کمزور کیس کی وجہ سے گرفتار ملازمین جیل سے رہا ہونا شروع ہو گئے ہیں۔ اب وہ مالکان جو اپنی میڈیا ایمپائر کو للکارنے کے جرم میں ایگزیکٹ اور بول سے وابسطہ ہر فرد کو پھانسی پر لٹکوانا چاہتے تھے۔ ان کی رہائی کی خبریں کیوں نشر یا شائع کریں گے۔ یہ صورتحال صرف ایگزیکٹ ایشو تک محدود نہیں ہے۔ اخبارات ہوں یا چینلز دونوں کا معیار ایک ہے۔ کس خبر کو نمایاں کرنا ہے اور کس کو شائع نہیں کرنا اس کا فیصلہ اخبار یا چینل مالک کے کاروباری مفاد یا اُس کی ذاتی پسند نا پسند پر ہوتا ہے۔ مثال کے طور پر پاکستان میں موبائل فون کمپنیوں کی جانب سے صارفین کے بدترین استحصال کے بارے میں کوئی خبر کسی اخبار یا چینل پر نہیں چل سکتی ہے، کیوں کہ فون کمپیناں اشتہارات دیتے وقت پابند کرتی ہیں کہ اُن کے خلاف خبر نہیں چلائی جائے گی۔

    یہاں سوال یہ پیدا ہوتا ہے کہ جو قاری اپنی جیب سے پیسے خرچ کر کے اخبار خریدتا ہے یا کیبل کی فیس ادا کرتا ہے، اُس کو اخبار یا چینل مالک کے کاروباری مفادات یا ذاتی پسند ناپسند پر مبنی مواد دیکھنے پر مجبور کیوں کیا جا رہا ہے؟ قاری یا ناظر کو حقائق جاننے سے دلچسبی ہوتی ہے، جس کے لئے وہ اپنی محنت سے کمائی ہوئی رقم خرچ کرتا ہے۔ لیکن میڈیا مالکان اُس کا استحصال کر رہے ہیں۔ افسوس ناک امر یہ بھی ہے کہ بےچارا قاری اس استحصال کی کسی فورم پر شکایت بھی نہیں کر سکتا۔

    کیا یہ آزادی اظہار پر قدغن نہیں ہے؟؟؟ آئین میں آزادی اظہار کی جو ضمانت دی گئی ہے وہ یہاں آکر کیوں بے بس ہو جاتی ہے؟؟ اس پر صحافتی تنظیموں، سول سوسائٹی اور ممبران پارلیمنٹ کو سوچنا ہوگا۔
