Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni said on Wednesday more educational institutions will be brought under the Monthly Pay Order (MPO) coverage by the next month, reports BSS.

"About 2,500 non-government educational institutions have been listed under four categories as qualified for MPO facilities. The institutions will be brought under the MPO coverage within this month or the next month," she said.

The minister came up with the remarks while replying to a journalist's query at her Secretariat office in the city.

Dipu Moni said the government has started MPO process much earlier, considering the movement of teachers and employees who have been demanding MPO facilities.

"We will scrutinise information of the listed institutions. If the information is found valid, announcement of bringing all the 2,500 institutions under MPO coverage will be given simultaneously by the next month," she added.

In the meeting, the education minister suggested holding the first year admission test for the universities under a cluster system aiming at reducing sufferings to the admission seekers and their guardians.
