Abolishing Punjab board Matric fee cost Rs 1.5bn

Punjab Board employees say Lahore Board to suffer loss of Rs 20 million
Lahore, July 31: The abolishment of Matriculation fees will cost Rs 1.5 billion to educational boards across the province, the Punjab Board Employees Federation said on Wednesday.

Addressing a press conference at the Lahore Press Club, the federation officials said the government should shoulder the financial burden to facilitate students instead of transferring it to the boards.

They said the intermediate and secondary education boards could not meet their expenses if examination fees were abolished.

They said fees were a major source of the boards' income. The federation said if registration fees were abolished, boards would not be able to operate independently since the government grant was not sufficient to run the boards.

Punjab Boards Employees Federation representative Aslam Gujjar said they were not against favors being extended to the students. He said the government should also realise the problems of the education boards. Gujjar said the government should provide funds to public sector schools instead of waiving exam fees.

Lahore Board: He said the Lahore Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (BISE) would suffer a loss of Rs 20 million due to the decision and it would be unfortunate if the government took the boards into control. Daily Times
