DIRPIS Warns Private Schools For Withholding SSC Admit Cards

Private schools in Sindh retain admission cards to students for Matriculation owing to non-payment of tuition fees. The Sindh Directorate for Inspection and Registration of Private Schools (DIRPIS), has received complaints from hundreds of students.

The Board of Secondary School Karachi has already issued their admission cards to representatives of private schools where they are enrolled, to permit students to sit the Secondary School Certificate (SSC) Annual Examinations 2021 that will begin on 5 July.

Some private schools do not however provide their students' cards because the majority of students did not pay their tuition fees. Students cannot take SSC exams that are only days away without admission cards and have thus filed complaints to DIRPIS.

In a statement the director of the DIRPIS, Mansoob Hussain Siddiqui announced that if private schools do not give the cards they will take strict measures.

"It would not be an adequate excuse. Private school owners should immediately issue students admission cards to be able to appear in their annual examinations," he added.

He encouraged student parents who are not provided with their cards to register DIRPIS complaints and stated: 'We would ensure that their complaints are addressed. No one is allowed to waste the time of the students since during lock-down they have already been affected by distress."

Director Siddiqui also told all regional directors that private schools should be encouraged to waste students' time for any reason.

"Regional Directors must ensure the receipt of their cards by all students who will participate in the annual exams," he added.
