Punjab Information Technology Board (PITB) DG IT-Operations, Faisal Yousaf, apprised the minister of the progress made on the development of the online retirement system of SED.
During the meeting, the minister said teachers would not have to bribe after the digitization of the retirement process.
While speaking with media outlets after the meeting, Dr. Murad noted that previous governments did not implement any steps to make life easier for teachers.
He concluded that the PTI-led Punjab government aims to bring transparency in the SED by completely automating the department.
