Schools To Be Registered via E-License System In Punjab
Punjab government has taken another step in setting up education system in the province under the digitization vision. According to reports, the Punjab government has introduced e-license system for registration of private sector schools. The e-license framework was launched by Punjab Education Minister Dr Murad Rass at a function in Lahore recently.Dr. Raas while addressing the ceremony said:
“E-licenses will allow private school owners to register schools with the provincial government without having to face the bureaucratic rigmaroles”
He added that under the e-license framework, the government would effectively regulate matters related to private schools in accordance with the rules and regulations. The Punjab government is also planning to introduce and enforce laws to regulate educational institutions in the private sector, which will encourage unwarranted increase in fees and permits. The law will also protect parents in books, uniforms, harassment and other related matters in private schools.
