Punjab Boards of Intermediate and Secondary Education fee increase
Rs 450 fee for passing FA, FSc exams?
Lahore, Sep 10: After matriculation, all eight Boards of Intermediate and
Secondary Education (BISEs) of the province have now imposed Rs 450 per
student as certificate fee on successful candidates of intermediate
The new fee will be received from both private and
regular candidates. In August this year, on directions of the Punjab
government and following a decision of the Punjab Boards Committee of
Chairmen (PBCC), BISEs in the province had imposed Rs 450 as certificate
fee for successful candidates of the secondary school (matriculation)
The new fee has upset students as well as their parents
who have termed it a move to further complicate financial matters in
the wake of ever-increasing inflation and any check from the government.
The revenue to be generated by the BISEs can be estimated by the
fact that a total of 73,501 candidates passed the intermediate
examination from the BISE Lahore alone this year which means the board
will generate over Rs 33 million from the new fee only. As per the
notification, private candidates will deposit Rs 450 in the bank and
paste the original challan form afterwards on the photocopy of the
intermediate result card. It will be submitted to the board office
otherwise the certificate would not be issued. Similarly, students of
government, autonomous and private institutions will be charged by
respective institutions which would subsequently submit it to respective
Earlier, no such fee was received from private as well as
regular candidates and certificates were issued free of cost to all
According to the notification, a copy of which is available
with The News, the decision is being implemented from the intermediate
annual examination 2010, the result of which was announced
simultaneously by the eight boards on September 4, 2010.
A number of students and their parents expressed concern over
the recent move saying Rs 450 was a substantial amount but it was
strange the government never thought how many people would be affected
by the decision.
A private student, Falak, who recently passed the
intermediate exam, said he had received a photocopy of the result card
from the BISE Lahore on Thursday with a notification according to which
he was directed to deposit Rs 450 to get the certificate. "I was shocked
as the amount is substantial", he added. The move is being seen as an
effort to avert financial constraints being faced by the boards of the
province following Chief Minister Punjab Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif waived
registration and examination fee for government school students
appearing in the matriculation exam last year.
When contacted, Ahad
Khan Cheema, Secretary Higher Education Department Punjab, the
controlling authority of all boards of the province, said the boards
were facing financial constraints following a 50 per cent increase in
remuneration of exam staff, a 50 percent hike in salaries of employees
by the federal government besides waiver of registration, examination
fee to government schools students for matriculation exams. He said the
BISEs were finding it difficult to hold exams because of financial
constraints. The news
