Govt to bear education expenses of matric, inter students

Govt to bear education expenses of matric, inter students

To promote secondary and higher secondary education, the Sindh government on Thursday decided to bear public sector students’ registration, admission and examination expenses for matriculation and intermediate classes.  

A notification to this effect was issued by Sindh government’s Secretary for School Education Department Abdul Aziz Uqaili, dated April 20, 2017.

The notification maintained that, “With the approval of the competent authority i.e. the Chief Minister Sindh, the School Education Department, Government of Sindh will bear all expenses relating to registration, enrolment and annual examination fees for all students of Class IX and XII enrolled in public sector educational institutions in the province of Sindh, with immediate effect.”

The plan was mentioned by the Sindh Education Minister Jam Mehtab Hussain Dahar a day ago, during a two-day workshop held for college principals.

The minister had said that the provincial govt decided to waive off admission and enrolment fee of college students to increase the number of enrolment in government-run colleges.

The education minister also
discussed exploitative means of some unscrupulous college staff to mint money from newly admitted students under the pretext of
additional charges for new admissions.

He said that for such reasons the admission fee had to be waived off for students of govt-run colleges and higher secondary schools.   

The education minister had claimed that the provincial education department was spending almost Rs16,000 per child but the desired results were still not being achieved.

“In future there will be no admission and examination fee for college students.”

He further warned principals to not assign non-teaching staff as invigilators during the exams conducted by the educational boards.
