Dr. Murad Raas, the Punjab Minister for School Education, stated on Thursday that the education department will hire 15,000 teachers.
Murad Raas, speaking at a news conference in Lahore, said that there is a shortfall of 50,000 instructors in Punjabi schools, and that they will hire 15,000 in the first phase to fill the gap.
In addition, the minister said that the education department would implement a paperless system.
“At the Program Monitoring and Implementation Unit (PMIU), we’ve constructed an in-house data centre, bringing 11 departments under one roof,” he stated.

The data centre, according to Raas, will increase openness and make it easier to make choices.
He went on to say that the education department had scanned over 12 million documents so far.
“We’ve already put the procedure of transfers and retirement online,” he said.
Previously, the department has reported billions of rupees in corruption; however, the digitization of the records will remove corruption.
“Those who engage in corrupt practises are irritated by the digitization process and data center’s establishment,” he continued.
