K-One centres may deal with PU result issues

In a late evening development, the Department of e-Governance sent a proposal to PUC Board Director Shankarnarayan stating that the 27 KarnatakaOne centres across the State can start accepting the payments for the re-valuation, re-totalling and photocopies for the second PUC students in the next two days.

“The proposal has been sent to the Director of PUC for his approval. If he approves, the 27 KarnatakaOne centres can start accepting the fees for the re-valuation process in the next two days,” said M N Vidyashankar, Principal Secretary, e-Governance Department.
According to Vidyashankar, while the software in KarnatakaOne is different from that of the BangaloreOne centres, the centres were ready to accept payments for the PUC revaluation process. According to Vidyashankar, the 27 Karnataka One centres exist in the eight municipal corporations in the State.

However, the Director for the PUC board, Shankarnarayan said the proposal is yet to arrive on his table.

“We are ready if they (e-Governance Department) are. We only need a approval from the government for initiating the process,” he said.

Shankarnarayan was sceptical whether the process has been initiated by the e-Governance department when contacted by Deccan Herald towards late Monday evening.

“As far as we are aware, the process has been initiated in Hubli-Dharwad and Shimoga but in no other City,” he said.

The convenient process initiated last year by the Primary and Secondary Education Department and the BangaloreOne centres to ease the payment woes for SSLC and PUC students who intended to apply for photocopies, re-valuation and re-totalling has eased the burden on the SSLC and PUC boards.

As a result, the department directed the two boards, SSLC and PUC to “consider expanding” the entire process of ensuring convenience to the students across the State while filing applications for photocopies, re-valuation and re-totalling.

“There was a suggestion made by the department to the both the, SSLC and the PUC boards to consider KarnatakaOne and other local service centres for facilitating the payment of fees for the three services. We are now awaiting their response,” informed Principal Secretary for the Primary and Secondary Education Department, R G Nadadur.
