DIRPIS warns private schools against withholding admit cards

July 02, 2021

Hundreds of students have registered complaints with the Directorate of Inspection and Registration of Private Institutions Sindh, stating that some private schools have refused to issue their admit cards for the Secondary School Certificate (SSC) Annual Exams 2021 to be held on July 5.

To make sure participation of the candidates, the Board of Secondary Education Karachi has already handed over admit cards to the representatives of the private schools. However, some of the private schools are not willing to issue admit cards to the students on the grounds that a majority of the students have not paid their tuition fees.

However, DIRPIS Director Mansoob Hussain Siddiqui has said in a statement that if private schools fail to distribute admit cards, they would face strict action and the directorate would take disciplinary action. “No excuse would be acceptable. The owners of private schools should immediately issue admit cards to the students so that they can appear in the annual examinations.”

He says parents whose children have not received their admit cards should register complaints with DIRPIS. “We will make sure their complaints are addressed. No one has the right to waste the time of the students as they have already suffered educational disruption during the lockdown.”

While directing all the regional directors, the DIRPIS director has stated that private schools can’t waste the time of the students for any reason, and that the students must be facilitated. “The regional directors have to make sure that all the students who would be appearing in the annual exams have received their admit cards.”
