Abida Nasreen, Anjum Naz

The study was conducted to examine current practices of discipline maintenance in the old and new public sector universities of Punjab, Pakistan. The sample of study included teachers and heads of departments (HoDs). Document analysis was also done to collect authentic data. The data from teachers and HoDs were collected through questionnaires. Interviews were conducted with HRM experts. The main objective was to analyze the current practices of discipline maintenance in five old and five new universities of Punjab. The results showed that old universities’ teachers were more inclined towards accusing each other and were less trying to solve problems than new universities’ teachers. HoDs further believed that with many faculty members, the only thing that really works was threats and punitive actions. However, HoDs were informing them about their weaknesses in non threatening way and this stance was also confirmed by the teachers’ opinion.
