LAHORE - Justice Sheikh Azmat Saeed of the Lahore High Court Monday observed that the court would not let any student suffer on account of B-form, which had been made compulsory by the Board of Intermediate and Secondary Examination (BISE) throughout Punjab for producing it along with the admission form for matric examination. On the petition filed by Muhammad Azhar Siddique advocate in public interest, Judicial Activism Panel, Shahid Waheed Sheikh, counsel for the Board, informed the court that all boards in province have extended the date for submitting the admission form with B-Form January 1, 2011. This has been decided in view of the difficulties confronting the students in acquiring the B-form. The petitioner Azhar Siddique recounted the hardships of the B-form seekers as the Nadra, authorised to issue the forms, is already burdened with the duty of issuing NICs and the Watan Cards. The applicants of B-form are required to get computerised birth certificate in the first instance, which is acquired for Rs 500 putting financial burden on the poor parents. He suggested for making the B-form compulsory from the very beginning of the academic life of a student instead of requiring it at the time of matric examination, as it makes no sense. The Board counsel said, The step of B-form is intended to end the booti mafia in the matric examination. The petitioners counsel said people were already pressed with continuous increasing price-hike and the long-hour power loadshedding, and now B-form move was enormously added to their woes. He urged the court to direct the government for evolving such a system which facilitates the masses instead of crushing them. He also invited attention of the court to the fact that Board has as yet not filed report as to under which authority it has framed this policy and whether it was competent to put the condition of B-form. The court adjourned the hearing to January 17, 2011 requiring the Board to furnish a detailed reply by that date.
