JKBOSE concludes maiden online affiliation, upgradation of schools
‘Next phase in its final stage; fresh applications for 2023-24 advertised’
JAMMU: With an objective to make the delivery of public services more effective and efficient across its various domains with the active mediation of Information Technology, the J&K Board of School Education has successfully added one more online service online affiliation of schools for its stakeholders.
The maiden endeavour of online affiliation and upgradation of schools concluded after the issuance of online affiliation/upgradation orders to more than 150 such schools across the UT of J&K that had applied for such services to JKBOSE.
Earlier the affiliation/upgradation process of JKBOSE was done in an offline mode. All the stakeholders expressed their satisfaction with this initiative which has been very facilitating to all of them.
Chairman JKBOSE Prof. Parikshat Singh Manhas congratulated Joint Secretaries of General Sections JD/KD & IT wings of JKBOSE, & National Informatics Centre for their consistent and persistent efforts, despite odds, to get fruitful results.
‘It is a matter of great satisfaction that we could successfully execute this initiative. The school owners of far-flung areas cannot afford to visit our office time and again. This service has highly facilitated them. We are in the process of offering many more IT-mediated student services to realise the vision of the Digital India Initiative launched by our Hon’ble Prime Minister with an aim to make the services available to citizens electronically by online infrastructure improvement. Student centricity, service convenience and transparency are the mainstays of our endeavours which have got an enormous boost with the Digital India initiative. Our such digital initiatives shall keep growing to simplify our processes,” he added.
JKBOSE has already implemented the relevant pillars of the Digital India programme viz. e-Governance & e-Kranti. It has already been offering many online services which include online applications for photostat copies of answer sheets, re-evaluation, registration, examination forms, results, eligibility, migration etc. The result and registration records are also being digitised to ensure their safety and security. Digital empowerment of the students has recently been ensured to provide the students access to their authentic documents through Digilocker services.
The next phase of online affiliation/upgradation of 325 schools has also reached its zenith with the meeting of UT level Affiliation Committee which was held recently on the 18th of this month. After the completion of procedural proceedings, necessary online orders will be issued. This shall finalise all the pending eligible cases to date.
The fresh schedule of online applications for affiliation/upgradation from the eligible schools has also been issued recently wherein the schools interested in fresh affiliation/recognition, extension of affiliation and upgradation of classes can apply alongwith necessary documents, and those who are found eligible shall be allowed to deposit the requite fee.
The entire exercise is to further streamline the affiliation processes and make them time-efficient so that the schools and students do not have to suffer any delays. The online portal facilitates both the affiliation and recognition of the schools. The schools should meet the timelines so that the affiliation process 2023-24 is finalised without any delay.
