Flawed policy causes Rs 160m loss BISE

Primary tabs

LAHORE:EMPLOYEES Welfare Association of the Board of Intermediate & Secondary Education (BISE) Lahore has claimed that the board has to incur a loss of Rs 160 million during fiscal year owing to ‘wrong’ implementation of chief minister’s decision to waive off admission and registration fee from students of government schools.

A press release said that an important meeting of the EWA was held on Tuesday, which criticised chief minister’s ‘ignorance’ and ‘silence’ over the issue and ‘conspiracy’ by board’s administration and the bureaucracy in this regard.

The meeting chaired by EWA President Muhammad Aslam Gujjar said those in authority knew it very well that except examination fees, the boards could not survive. It observed the government assured immediate release of grants after recent protests but nothing had been implemented so far.

The EWA statement also claimed that BISE Lahore had to face additional loss of Rs 140 million owing to recent 50 per cent increase in remuneration for marking of answer papers.

The association demanded of the CM to take notice of the issue and immediately release grant for the BISE Lahore.The news
