BIEK fee increase irks students | KU exams rescheduled

BIEK doubled fees (Rs150 to Rs300) for various disciplines
Karachi, Oct 23: The recent rise in the charges for various services offered by the Board of Intermediate Education Karachi (BIEK) has irked the students, especially those from the lower-middle and lower classes, who will be affected the most by the change in the fees structures. BIEK officials believe, however, that these increments were essential to meet various expenses because the Board has no other source of earning.

According to a notification - BIE/ADMIN (ESTB) CIR/402/2009 - issued on July 02, the Board has doubled the fees (from Rs150 to Rs300) for various disciplines. Students will have to pay the new amount for permission fee, benefit case, change of group, regularisation permission, gap permission, first year repeats, and "old cases as penalty per year".

A second notification, BIE/ADMIN/ (ESTB)/CIR/703/ 2009, was issued on the same date to increase the service charges of other disciples. In this notification, BIEK officials have proposed the rates for the issuance of certificates, marks sheets, IT certificates, migration certificates, duplicate documents, scrutiny fees, verification of miscellaneous documents, and special arrangement for practical examinations.

In another notification, BIE/ADMIN (ESTB)/CIR/319/ 2009, issued on August 19, the Board has decided to collect Rs1,170, instead of Rs780 as the registration fee, and Rs300 as the fee for old cases as a penalty per year, which was Rs100 annually. The news
