SSC exam Form-B submission condition

Form-B submission: Thousands may miss SSC exam in Taxila
Taxila, Dec 29: Thousands of students from both public and private sector educational institutions may miss the annual Secondary School Certificate (SSC) examination 2011 as they are unable to submit computerised B-form along with their examination forms.

The Punjab education department has made it mandatory for class 9th and 10th students to submit the computerised birth certificate (Form-B) issued by National Database and Registration Authority (Nadra) otherwise they would not be allowed to sit in the annual exam.

Talking to this correspondent, students, parents and teachers questioned the rationale behind the new move.

Sabir Minhas, the president of All Pakistan Private Schools, Colleges Executive Association, said the Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (BISE)'s new condition had not only created problems for the students and their parents but also put Nadra officials in a trouble.

Abdul Aziz Haqqani, who runs a chain of private schools in Taxila, demanded immediate withdrawal of the condition. He said Nadra centres were already overburdened due to a lack of staff and equipment.

It is learnt that every day 100 to 150 applicants arrive at Nadra swift centre located at Wah Canttt to get the form-B.

When contacted, manager of the Nadra swift registration centre said the existing staff was meant for handling CNIC seekers, adding no extra staff had been provided for issuing computerised Form-B. Dawn

PTU accuses RBISE chief of corruption
Rawalpindi: Punjab Teachers' Union (PTU) on Tuesday demanded that National Accountability Bureau (NAB) probe alleged billions of rupees corruption by Rawalpindi Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (RBISE) Chairman Abdul Hafeez.

PTU Senior Vice President (SVP) Imtiaz Ahmad Abbasi made this demand while addressing a press conference. PTU District Rawalpindi President Anwar Hussain Shah, Vice President Sajid Masood Abbasi, Najeeb Pasha and other teachers were also present on the occasion.

The teachers also demanded that the provincial government remove Hafeez from the RBISE chairmanship for misusing his authority.

The teachers warned the government that if their demands were not met, they would not only boycott the examination duty but also kick off a protest campaign in the whole district.

"Hafeez in the capacity of RBISE chairman has established a state within state as he misuses official resources for personal gains by setting aside all the rules and regulations," Abbasi blamed.

They said if the government did not take strict action against the RBISE chairman they would lock-up the classrooms and come onto the roads as first leg of their protest.

The teachers informed the journalists that according to prescribed rules, the government servants were entitled to 45 percent of basic pay as house rent allowance (HRA), but the RBISE chairman was allegedly getting Rs 30,000 per month on account of HRA.
