NTS Asked To Install Biometric Machines In Examination Halls For Identification Purposes
PESHAWAR, 09 January: The management of the National Testing Service (NTS) has been asked to introduce biometric identification system for allowing candidates into examination halls.
The demand has been made after some candidates were not allowed to sit in the entry test conducted by the NTS because they were not having original Computerized National Identity Cards (CNICs).
Entry test was held for some vacant posts of monitoring teams in the Education Department in Peshawar on Sunday. Large number of candidates from different districts of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa had come to appear in the test. Two candidates, Asad from Buner and Zeeshan for Shabqadr were not allowed to sit in the examination hall for having their original CNICs.
“I have lost my CNIC sometime ago and I also lodged a report with police but the NTS administration did not allow me to take the test,” said Zeeshan.
Asad said that he had applied for a foreign visa and his CNIC along with passport was with the travel agent.
They demanded of the NTS administration to fix biometric machines outside the examinations hall so that candidates’ identification could be made through their thumbs impressions.
