Students to be issued computerised ID cards in Punjab

Islamabad

 
July 25, 2016

Rawalpindi

The children who would get admissions in the schools would be issued computerised identity cards that would help prevent fake admissions in the schools or colleges in the Punjab province.

According to the minutes of the meeting held under the chairmanship of Director Public Instruction Punjab the computerised identity cards to the students would be issued in all the districts including Rawalpindi. The identity cards would carry the bio-data and all the relevant information about the student that would enable the administration of the schools to check the history of their educational career.

The Punjab government would initially launch the project of issuance of the computerised identity cards to the students for ten years. It is pertinent to mention here that some students prepare fake schools certificates and educational record to get admission in any other school. So the computerised identity cards would help prevent this illegal practice. The official record also showed that senior officials of the education department would seek proposals from the relevant experts to first launch the pilot project of issuance of the computerised identity cards to the students in selective schools in various districts.
