PBTE apologises to student on ombudsman order
Lahore: Punjab Board of Technical Education (PBTE), on the order of Punjab
Ombudsman Abdur Rashid Khan, has apologised to a complainant over erroneously
declaring him fail in English paper. Besides, the board refunded the rechecking
fee to the complainant.
Earlier, Ali Raza Khan lodged a complaint with
the Mohtasib Secretariat that he appeared in Diploma in Commerce Part-II First
Annual Examination 2007 of the Punjab Board of Technical Education and was
declared fail in English paper.
He added that he applied for rechecking
of his answer book and was informed by the board that his marks have been
increased to 78 from 76. he said this came as a surprise to him because as per
the result card dated August 11, 2007, he have obtained 16 out of 100 marks in
the English paper.
He said however, the revised result card was not
issued to him and he could not get admission in any institution of his choice.
He requested the Mohtasib Secretariat to give a direction to the board
for issuing a revised result card to him and for payment of Rs 500,000 as
damages, for he had no chance of getting admission in any institution of his
choice for further studies at this belated stage.
In a departmental
response, PBTE informed the Mohtasib Secretariat that during rechecking of the
complainantís answer book, it was found that he had actually obtained 76 marks.
The board added that two marks were added to his total score as per a decision
of the PBTE to award additional two marks to all students because of a
discrepancy found in framing of a question in the English paper.
said the examiner had recorded the complainantís marks as ì16î in figures and
ìseventy sixî in words on the relevant award list.
The error was
rectified by issuing a revised result notification dated August 9, 2007 showing
that the complainant bagged a total 926 marks out of 1200.
A copy of the
revised result notification was sent to the college concerned, it
PBTE said that regarding the payment of damages, the board
rectified the error as soon as came to its notice and that a revised
notification was issued on August 9, 2007 in this regard.
PBTE said the
complainant could have approached the college for a provisional certificate and
could have also contacted the office of the board for a revised result card, but
he did not opted for any of the courses.
The board further stated that
since the error stood rectified and that the complainant was intimated of this,
he could have gotten admission to any institution of his choice because until
then admissions were not closed. Therefore, the question of any loss or damage
did not arise.
On this, the Punjab Ombudsman observed that undeniably the
board committed a serious mistake and although the same was rectified later on;
therefore, keeping in view the inconvenience caused to the complainant due to
declaration of wrong result, he directed the PBTE to issue a letter of regrets
to the complainant acknowledging the mistake and to refund the rechecking
In its compliance report, the board has informed the Mohtasib
Secretariat that a letter of regrets has been issued to the complainant and the
rechecking fee of Rs 265 has also been refunded to him. The News
