The Inter-board Committee of Chairmen (IBCC) has given the green light for the digitization of the records of all the educational boards in order to strengthen the automation system and to facilitate the attestation of documents and the equivalence process for the public.
The Federal Minister for Education, Shafqat Mehmood, directed the education authorities to digitize their records, following which a meeting was convened between the Secretary IBCC, Dr. Ghulam Ali Mallah, and the Executive Director of the National Information Technology Board (NITB).

In a follow-up meeting of the chairmen, it was decided that a central repository of the data of all the examination boards of Pakistan will be created at the IBCC, Islamabad.
It was agreed upon that the National IT Board will provide e-office services to the IBCC Secretariat and its regional offices to digitize all internal processes.

The digitization process will be launched in phases, and the pilot phase will have the FBISE Islamabad, the BISE Lahore, the BISE Peshawar, the BISE Quetta, and the BISE Karachi add their records to the central repository. Following this, the existing manual data of all the boards will be digitized with the support of the NITB.
Finally, the data from the boards will be incorporated into the IBCC attestation and equivalence e-portals, and the current hybrid system will be converted into complete automation.
