Minister of Federal Education and Professional Training Shafqat Mahmood launched the Digital Equivalence Certificate Verification Service, introduced by Inter Board Committee of Chairmen (IBCC). The launching ceremony was held at the Ministry of Federal Education on Thursday. IBCC Secretary, Dr Ghulam Ali Mallah briefed the Minister on the utility and benefits of the new feature.

Speaking at the launching ceremony the Federal Minister said that in light of the vision of the Prime Minister, all the organizations working under the umbrella of the Education Ministry are digitalizing their processes for transparency and facilitate the public. After successful completion of the online equivalence process, the IBCC has digitalized the process of verification of equivalence certificates.

This service will enhance accessibility, reduce the cost & time and other hurdles faced by organizations within or outside the country. The Minister appreciated IBCC for facilitating the public through the use of the latest technology.

While speaking on the occasion, Dr Ghulam Ali Mallah said that the IBCC integrated security feature in certificate through Encrypted QR Code. Now, the organizations, institutions or universities do not need to send documents to IBCC for verification, as the verification is now just a click away as they can verify it by scanning QR codes from anywhere around the world.

\He further said that this is a real-time verification through which organizations can quickly verify data on their mobile or computer and will receive a verification email for their official record. Due to this new security feature, the IBCC will also save millions of rupees annually by removing old & traditional manual security features from the certificate.
