Over 60,000 students await stipend
Larkana: The Reform Support Unit (RSU) has failed to
release scholarship stipend to more than 60,000 girls students enrolled
from classes sixth to tenth and eligible to get the amount of money.
Sources in the District Education Office on Thursday confirmed that in Larkana district alone 20,276 eligible girls were still
awaiting the stipend which otherwise would have been disbursed by the
closing of financial year.
Enrolment lists had been sent to the RSU in November/December 2012
mentioning the girls' strength for fiscal 2011-2012, sources in the
Secondary Education Management Information System (SEMIS) said.
Under a World Bank-funded programme aimed at encouraging female
education and enhancing the enrolment in schools, each eligible girl
student from class sixth to tenth is given stipend scholar of Rs2,500
per year while females enrolled in the remote schools Rs3,500 per year,
sources in the education department said.
Sources in the directorate education of Larkana said on Thursday that
the department of education had moved a summary in this regard to the
finance department of Sindh, but it awaiting an approval.
This correspondent tried to reach the chief programme manager of the
RSU and the deputy programme manager to know the present status of the
scholarships but in vain.
Previously, the amount was sent in April when new academic year
started. But this year, summer vacations are approaching and annual
examinations of matric students have been completed, but the stipend is
not in sight, the sources in the directorate of education Larkana said
Disbursement of the scholarship stipend is itself a time-consuming
exercise because the amount is distributed through the heads of schools
and the personnel of post offices concerned.
The post office personnel visit the schools and make payments through
bank cheques. In case of late release, the question is how the girls'
students who have completed their matric examinations would be located
by the department.
In fiscal 2011-2012 when the lists were submitted to the RSU, a total
64,464 girls' students (from class VI to X) were enrolled in the girls
schools in Larkana division, the sources in the directorate and SEMIS
Sindh confirmed it on Thursday.
According to the break-up, the girls enrolment eligible to get
stipend in Larkana district is 22,623, in Jacobabad 10448, in Shikarpur
11,889, in Kashmor 4,895 and in Kambar-Shahdadkot district 14,609. Dawn
