Kathmandu, Dec. 19: The Janak Education Materials Limited (JEMT) is awaiting hefty loan amount for the purchase of textbook print paper after the Commission for Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA) directed the Ministry of Education to not allow the lack of textbooks in coming educational year.

The anti-graft body on December 15 had directed the Education Ministry and other concerned bodies to create environment to hand over textbook sets of all subjects to students at the onset of coming educational year.

The Guardians Association Nepal had submitted a memorandum to CIAA chief Lokman Singh Karki the same day demanding proper directive for distributing textbooks to students on time.

Though the Ministry of Education and its subordinate education department on Wednesday organized a meeting of textbook management central coordination committee after the CIAA directive, the problem of textbook shortage is yet to be addressed.


The JEMT said that though it is ready to print textbooks required for coming educational year it has no adequate financial resource to immediately purchase papers.


In the meeting, JEMT Managing Director Anil Kumar Jga said that they could not print textbooks if loan amount of Rs 550 million required for the purchase of papers was not provided till the end of December.


Guardians Association Nepal Chairperson Suprabhat Bhandari said that the shortage of textbooks would hit hard the future of students. RSS
