Quetta – New verification rules of Balochistan Public Service commission (BPSC) have made life difficult for the applicants, learnt The Balochistan Point.
According to new rules of BPSC, candidates who want to apply for a job must get their educational testimonials verified form the issuing authority. Previously only those candidates were asked to verify their documents that had been selected for jobs.
Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education and University of Balochistan (UOB) are the organizations responsible for verifying documents.
Both of these organizations don’t accept Detail Marks Card (DMC) for verification and ask the candidates to acquire their certificates and degrees.
Applicants first get their certificates of Matriculation and Intermediate from Board Office and then same board Office verifies them. Same is the case with Degrees in UOB.
“What’s the point of verifying the degrees and certificates that have been issued by concerned organizations hours before the verification process,” questioned a job applicant while talking to The Balochistan Point.
Applicants have to pay two thousand rupees fee for verification of one document and fees for acquiring certificates and degrees are separate.
“Under-privileged applicants are being systemically deprived of job opportunities using the new verification rules of BPSC,” A. N. Sabir chairman of Education Review Committee told media. He revealed that many Students have quit applying for jobs in BPSC due to inconvenience and unaffordable fees of verification process.
Students have to wait for more than ten days to get their documents verified and that’s why many students fear that they can miss the deadline of form submission. BPSC extended the deadline for jobs of secondary School Teachers due to these problems.
Majeed Saleh, an applicant for BPSC jobs termed the extension in deadline as insufficient while talking to The Balochistan Point. He continued, “Students who have completed Matriculation, intermediate and graduation outside of Balochistan province would require two to three months to verify their documents.”
Many applicants contacted The Balochistan Point and urged Government and BPSC to restore old verification rules and stop playing with future of applicants in Balochistan.
