IBCC's efforts to facilitate students
Back in November, the newly appointed Secretary IBCC, Dr. Ghulam Ali Mallah, called on Mehmood at his office and informed him of measures the IBCC is taking to facilitate students.
He said that to facilitate students to remit the fee of the IBCC, the number of bank branches has been increased from 280 to 1,400 across Pakistan.
A courier company has been assigned for collection and return of application for equivalence and attestation of certificates, he said.
The secretary briefed the minister about IBCC and informed him that IBCC will automate all its processes to ensure transparency and improve efficiency in service delivery.
He said to ensure the quality of equivalence certificates, a QR Code will be printed on them.
