Government of the Punjab, Programme Monitoring & Evaluation Unit, Punjab Education Sector Reform Programme extended the deadline for entry of B-Form in Annual School Census 2020-21.
This year in the Annual School Census a decision was taken to make the B-Form issued by NADRA mandatory for each student as a unique ID. This decision has been taken to improve data credibility and allow for robust tracking, monitoring and future planning. Additionally, cash transfer programmes on the basis of Khidmat Card also require B-Form/CNIC numbers will also be helpful to track the children dropped from the Public School System.
The process is on-going; however, it has come to the notice of the concerned authorities that parents are rushing to NADRA offices all over Punjab to get B-Forms for their children, causing a burden on the system that is already overstretched by the pandemic Covid-19.
Therefore, due to the pandemic, it has been decided to extend the deadline for entry of B-Form numbers till 31st January 2021 to facilitate students and their families.
It is requested that the revised deadline given in Para no. 4 above be communicated to concerned District Education Authorities. It is further requested that the concerned NADRA offices in the districts be contacted and asked to facilitate parents in this regard please.
