In the meeting, serious concern was expressed over the irregularities during the recent examinations. Bilal Yasin, head of the cabinet committee, said that all the institutions and individuals involved in the examination process should mend their ways and be more vigilant. Reports of cheating and serious irregularities in the examination process are emerging from several districts, including Lahore. He said that appointment of private invigilators in the matriculation examinations and corruption is a question mark on the efficiency of the administration. Bilal Yasin said that all examination centers that provincial ministers are visiting are showing irregularities. The management’s reports are contrary to facts and will not work because our undercover teams in the field are bringing out all the facts.

He said that the private invigilators caught red-handed doing corruption should be behind bars. Bilal Yasin directed that the mistakes should not be repeated in the upcoming exams and administration should ensure the best arrangements. Provincial Education Minister Rana Sikandar Hayat said that the elements playing with the future of children do not deserve any relaxation. The provincial minister said that the candidates from whom the money was forcibly taken should be recovered. Administration was directed to implement a zero-tolerance policy regarding cheating in all future examinations. It was recommended in the meeting that cases should be registered against the persons arrested from the examination centers under 16 MPO. Consideration was also given to installing cameras in examination rooms for future and recommendations were sought from all stakeholders to formulate a comprehensive policy regarding future examinations.
