Out of city RBISE office creates problems for public

Rawalpindi:22 august: For more than four years, students and parents are facing worst kind of difficulties in approaching Rawalpindi Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (RBISE) which was shifted to Morgah Village far away from city localities. The board office was shifted in 2013 from Sixth Road, which was heart of city and easily approachable for parents and students. Parents and students have appealed to the higher authorities to shift RBISE offices in old building of Town Municipal Administration (TMA) which has remained vacant for many years. The higher authorities should convert RBISE building in a best girls college because there was no girls college in Morgah. It merits mentioning here that RBISE is neither on the route of Metro Bus Service (MBS) nor public service vehicles ply on the route. Only some pickups ply on the route but they too travel from Raja Bazaar to Morgha. It becomes impossible to get a seat on these wagons going towards Morgah. “If anybody wants to go to RBISE office he should hire a taxi or rickshaw to approach the destination.” Some of RBISE officials on condition of anonymity said that parents and students face difficulties in approaching the board office to resolve routine matters. The parents and students insist to do official work in a day to avoid another visit. “How could we resolve their problems within a day, they bemoaned. In 2011, Rawalpindi Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (RBISE) Dr. Muhammad Qasim chairman of that time had issued the orders for shifting of the audit, finance and registration braches to the new building till November 26, 2011. Other branches of the board were also shifted in December. As per agreement, the new building was complete in February 2012. The concerned officials were also reluctant to move into the new building at Morgah. They were adopted delaying tactics to stay in the old building maximum time only to facilitate public. Rawalpindi Division Teachers Welfare Association former President Chaudhry Saghir Alam has admitted that parents and students face difficulties in approaching RBISE office Morgah. Students visit the board office again and again to resolve their issues but new building is far off from city areas, he said. Talking to ‘The News’, parents and students said RBISE office was far away from the city areas and it was hard for them particularly female students to reach the new building. Dr. Waqar Azeem from Mohanpura said that he was continuously visiting RBISE office Morgah now-a-days to change the name of his daughter in mark sheet and in her certificate. “I am ready to fulfil all necessary formalities for it but I am tired with long travelling as board office is far away from the city areas,” he denounced. Rashid Mehmood, said that all matters were going smoothly when board office was at Sixth Road. Even female students also visited it to resolve their issues but now neither girls nor boys could easily approach the new office of RBISE easily. “We appeal to higher authorities to bring RBISE office in Rawalpindi city areas to ease public,” he demanded.The news.
