Pindi students struggling for admissions to colleges

Students go through red tape ahead of admissions
Rawalpindi, Aug 21: As top achievers in Punjab's educational arena are enjoying high-profile receptions at summer resorts in addition to financial benefits, thousands of average students are struggling against bureaucratic tactics at the offices of educational boards in their quest for admissions to colleges.

One of the major shortcomings in the government's admission policy is the verification of mark sheets from the same board which had issued the document. Without this verification, the procedure of admission to colleges is not completed and in case of delay the student loses his/her seat.

A student has to pay a fee of Rs320 for verification of a mark sheet. The Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (BISE), Rawalpindi, offers a 'One Window Operation' but on ground it has several "windows."

Without knocking on every one of these windows, a student is unable to complete the procedure.

A BISE official, when contacted, admitted there was no reason for verification by students themselves, and said it should have been the responsibility of colleges to verify mark sheets without creating hindrances for students.

It has now become a custom that public has to pay the government for any service it requires.

Besides the self-issued mark sheets, the educational boards charge at least Rs500 for verifying a migration certificate.

Mohammad Farooq, who runs his business on Adiala Road, had to close his shop for two days to get verified the mark sheet of his son from the board office. Losing business, he had to race against time by spending one day in locating the relevant office of the board and depositing fee in the prescribed bank for verification, and the other to get the document verified.

The BISE official said the board had too much on its plate when its IT staff was busy in tabulating the records of examinations. After intermediate and secondary examination results, Class-IX result is due shortly due to which it is not possible to issue verifications of result cards in just one day.

The Punjab government's move to honour position holders is no doubt a step in the right direction, generating a sense of competition among students and recognition of the talent that exists in this country, but Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif and his minister for education should also look into the bureaucratic "highhandedness" of the board officials.

College managements get rough with admission-seekers
Rawalpindi: The applicants and their parents have appealed to the concerned quarters of Punjab as well as federal government to take notice of the rough and rude attitude of the administrations of private and government colleges over the admission issue.

They accused them of misbehaving with people approaching them for admissions of their sons in the first year class. They also alleged that under the cover of high merit they were promoting nepotism by manipulating admission to their blue-eyed boys.

District Education Officer (DEO) Colleges Ulfat Mehmood Janjua said more and more government colleges should be established for providing quality education to the students. "Private institutions are fleecing the people and also misbehaving with them. The Education Department would not tolerate favouritism and misbehaviour with the public," he said.

Coordinator Chief Minister Task Force in Education Department Chaudhry Muhammad Aslam said that getting admission in colleges is the basic right of every student, but unfortunately they are facing humiliation in the process. He said that he has written about the situation to Punjab Chief Minister Mian Shahbaz Sharif that people are facing humiliation from the management of colleges," he added.

Parents complained that government should formulate a policy that every student should get admission. They said that students are wandering here and there knocking at the doors of different colleges for admission.

Muhammad Ramzan Abbasi, father of a student waiting for a college principal, said that he was trying to meet the principal but he has not been able to see him so far. The news
