Online application for MPO 
facility to open ‘in a week’

Online application for the inclusion of non-government educational institutions under Monthly Pay Order (MPO) facilities would begin within a week, education ministry sources said. Sources said they have started doing their homework on the process flow following the MPO Policy, 2018. The education ministry has already formed two committees—selection committee and technical committee—for the implementation of MPO facilities to non-government educational institutions.

Sources said that the technical committee will hold a meeting on July 5 when it would finalised how applications would be sought online from the non-government educational institutions. “We have started doing the homework on how to receive applications for educational institutions for assessment of grades to qualify for MPO facilities,” technical committee head Md Fashiullah, who is also the director-general of Bangladesh Bureau of Educational Information and Statistics (BANBEIS), told The Independent yesterday.

“We have a meeting on July 5 in this regard. On that day, we'll finalise how the application would be sought. There are highly qualified technical persons in our committee. BUET is assisting us here. We want to make the process foolproof,” he added. Ministry sources said the technical committee would receive the applications and assign grades to the educational institutions, based on various indicators. Then, the committee would send the ranking of the institutions to the selection committee. The educational institutions would be brought under gradation following the indices of the MPO Policy 2018.

The grading would have 100 points. There are 25 points for academic recognition, 25 points for number of students, 25 points for number of examinees, and 25 points for successful students in public examinations.

For grading of academic recognition, an institution would get five points for every two years, and the points would be 25 if the academic recognition is of 10 years or above. For the grading of students, an institution would get 15 points for desired number of students. An institution can get 5 points every increase in number of students by 10 per cent.

For the grading of examinees, an institution would get 15 points for desired number of examinees in public examinations. After the desired number of examinees, the institution would get 5 points for increase of every ten examinees.

For successful students in public examinations, an institution would get 15 points for attaining the desired rate. The next 5 points would be added for every 10 per cent increase in pass rate.

The MPO Policy says that the institutions would need to apply online for MPO facilities. After the gradation, the technical committee would send it to the selection committee for the next course of action.

The selection committee would assess the institutions and send recommendations to the government for inclusion under MPO facilities. The selection committee head and also additional secretary (non-government institutions) of secondary and higher education division, Javed Ahmed, said, “The two committees are actively working in this regard. We hope we'll be able to seek applications for MPO facilities within a week.”

The last round of expansion of MPO facilities for non-government educational institutions was done eight years back, when a total of 1,622 educational institutions were brought under MPO perquisites.

When the process of giving new MPOs for non-government educational institutions was stopped after 2010, teachers and employees of the non-government educational institutions staged movement for the demand of MPO. Right now, such teachers and employees have again hit the streets to realise their demand for MPO.

It is estimated that some 7,000 educational institutions are out of the MPO facilities and around 80,000 teachers-employees are working here.
