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.

The PBTE 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 added.

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 fee.

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
