Higher Secondary Education Board (HSEB), in a bid to execute the administrative works efficiently, today launched a new system for providing academic certificates to Grade XI and XII pass students.
Minister for Education Dinanath Sharma launched the new system at a programme at HSEB office today.
The system was launched to ensure efficient and transparent administrative work in the central office and its regional offices, he said.
Earlier, the use of hand-written bills had led to errors in the billing system giving rise to complaints of financial irregularities in the board and its regional offices.
In the first phase, the new software will be used in the central office in Sanothimi.
According to HSEB member secretary Bhim Lal Gurung, the use of software will ease and speed up the certificate distribution process to Grade XII pass students.
Earlier, students had to wait for almost a month after submitting forms to receive the pass certificate, such problems will not arise any more, he added.
“Now the students will get their results in few days after submitting the form,” he said adding, “We are planning to use this software in the regional offices gradually.” Under HSEB Sanothimi, there are eight regional offices.
HSEB spokesperson Narayan Koirala said people outside the Valley used to wait for a month to receive their certificates but now they will get them within a week.
Education minister Sharma said the new software would help execute daily work and cater to students’ needs at the earliest. He urged the board to expand the software across the country. Gurung said the software would reach regional offices by September.
