City schools to reopen from June 7: Raas



Staff Reporter

Punjab Education Minister Murad Raas on Tuesday said that the public and private schools will be reopened from June 7 in the remaining districts of Punjab including Lahore under strict SOPs.

“The issue of Public and Private schools that are still closed in Districts of Punjab was discussed in the last NCOC meeting.

The remaining Districts will have a staggered approach opening from Monday June7th, 2021. Please follow SOPs issued by the Government”, minister said in a tweet.

He stressed that everyone will have play his part to fight the pandemic as all these measures have been taken for safety and protection of students.

Meanwhile, Punjab Governor Ch Sarwar on Tuesday promulgated ‘Punjab Janashini Ordinance, 2021’ under which heirs of a dead person will no longer need to approach a court to inherit his or her transferable or non-transferable properties, but the National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA).

The NADRA will then issue to the citizens properties’ ‘Family Registration Certificate’ for which special counters are being set up at all NADRA offices across Punjab.

After the death of a person, his or her heirs will have to submit an application to the NADRA for the possession of properties left behind by the dead person following which the latter will place an ad in two newspapers; one Urdu and one English.

And if none objects to it within 14 days, the applicants will be issued the Janashini certificate.

NADRA’s janashini certificate will be just like the one issued by a court, and the heirs will only approach the court for the settlement of complicated property disputes.

For example claimants to a dead person’s property will be able to take the case to a court in the event of NADRA’s failure to identify real heirs of the deceased.
