Aitchison College not implementing Single National Curriculum, Punjab govt announces Zero exemptions

LAHORE: The Punjab government has warned the Aitchison College for not implementing the Single National Curriculum’s guidelines.

According to the details, the Punjab Curriculum and Textbook Board (PCTB) on Tuesday wrote a letter to the Aitchison college and warned against issuing books for grades I-V which have not yet been issued NOCs by the board.

“It is to apprise you that the PCTB reviews and issues NOCs to the books after due process not on the request of an educational institution (school/college), but on the request of book developer (person/agency/private publisher) who apply for the same,” reads the letter.

“You are again requested/ advised to kindly do not prescribe those books which have not given NOCs by PCTB,” reads the letter.

Meanwhile, Punjab Education Minister Murad Raas shared the letter on Twitter, saying that there will be “zero exemptions” as far as implementing the Single National Curriculum guidelines are concerned.

“Letter sent to Aitchison College Lahore for NOT implementing Single National Curriculum in its entirety by Punjab Curriculum Textbook Board. Zero exemptions. I will not let anyone challenge the writ of the government,” he tweeted.
