FBISE amends policy


In order to avoid the litigation process, the Federal Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (FBISE) on Tuesday changed its policies applicable to the change of students’ names, fathers’ names and other corrections in the Matriculation and Intermediate certificates.
Earlier, students used to go to courts for corrections in their certificates. However, under the new policy, FBISE’s five-member committee would decide the matter.
Sources said that the decision would help avoid the litigation process which used to cost FBISE heavily as it had to pay around Rs 6 million during the last two years for litigation in various courts. FBISE issued a notification on November 16 in this regard while a committee has also been constituted.
