Quetta: An important Press conference was conducted by Mughees Shehzad Buzdar about discriminatory practices of National Testing Service (NTS) in Balochistan, on Sunday.
Mr. Buzdar, a member of civil society discussed in detail about how NTS is treating candidates in Balochistan.
In Punjab NTS fee for government jobs tests is Rs. 600, In Khyber Pakhtunkhaw its 300 for one job and 800 for 5 jobs, whereas in Balochistan NTS fee is 1000 per job.
“Balochistan is most backward provinces and it has highest fee which is totally unfair and unjustifiable” lamented Mr. Buzdar.
In order to ensure transparency in the testing system of NTS, Mr. Buzdar proposed some recommendations:
- Carbon copy of answer sheet should be provided to candidates in every test.
- Presently, only the candidate can see his result. In order to ensure transparency result of all candidates should be available publicly.
- Computer based online testing system should be introduced where the result is announced immediately after test.
In his press conference, Mr. Mughees Shehzad urged Governor, Chief Minister, political parties and members of civil society to play their role in addressing the issues raised by him in the important press conference.
