2500 educational institutions  to come under MPO system soon

The government is going to provide around 2500 non-government educational institutions with monthly pay order (MPO) facilities after a break of eight years.

Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni on Wednesday said,  “The declaration will be given within one month. And we have completed all necessary formalities so that it would possible to provide MPO facilities to the institutions."

Dr Dipu Moni said nearly 2,500 non-government educational institutions of the country will probably get MPO facilities.

All the eligible institutions will gradually come under the MPO system, said the education minister at a view exchange meeting with education affairs reporters at her secretariat office in the capital.

Earlier on June 14 last year, the education ministry published the MPO Policy-2018 to provide the facilities for non-government educational institutions.

The education ministry finalised the list of 2500 institutes after examining applications from all non-government educational institutions of the country.

Teachers and employees of the MPO-listed institutions will get government benefits, including cent percent of their basic salaries and other allowances, but non-MPO institutions are not entitled to have such facilities. Some 1,622 educational institutions got MPO facilities in 2010.

The process of providing MPO facilities has been suspended for almost eight years. Teachers and employees of non-government educational institutions are staging demonstrations to press their long-running demand for MPO facilities. Finally, they are going to get the facilities after a long wait.
