Lack of budget to purchase paper hampers JEMC book printing

5  Dec,Kathmandu: The Janak Education Materials Centre (JEMC) has encountered with hurdles to print school textbooks as it is running out of budget to purchase papers.

The JEMC has shouldered the task of printing around 20 million sets of books from grade 6 to 10 for the upcoming academic session. It has demanded loan of Rs 250 million from the government to buy raw materials (papers) for book printing. We have been responded positively, but a delay in timely decision has forced us to halt the book printing, JEMC Director Kapildev Pokhrel shared.
The JEMC that has the capacity of printing up to 100,000 sets of books on a daily basis is incurring loss of Rs 150 million every year and it is yet to repay Rs 700 million debt to the government.
However, Joint Spokesperson at the Ministry of Education Saraswoti Pokhrel said the inter-ministerial discussions (with the Ministry of Finance) are going on to allocate the loan demanded by the JEMC and the final decision is expected to come soon.
More, the post of the JEMC General Manager has been lying vacant since the then GM Anil Kumar Jha who was appointed to the post four years ago through open competition completed his term on November 29. According to Pokhrel, the government is expected to fill the vacant post soon. RSS
