HEC Online Degree Verification System for Students

Higher Education Commission (HEC) has planned to soon initiate online verification of degrees of students intending to visit abroad for further education. This was stated by Member Operations and Planning HEC Dr Mukhtar Ahmad.

The commission would verify degrees and certificates of students intending to get admissions abroad, in Pakistani universities or for getting jobs through online procedure, he said.

He admitted that the recent raise in degree and certificate attestation fee is causing financial burden on people coming from far flung areas. But the commission is compelled to increase attestation fee due to financial reasons, he said.

In 2002, he said there was no fee for attestation as it was not the requirement at that time.
Thousands of people were visiting the commission for attestation of their degrees even when they didn’t need it. Majority came at the last moment without proper documents creating hurdles for the staff.

Now after increase in charges, he said the staff would get genuine applicants who really need attestation.

Referring to the reasons of non-release of HEC funds, he said it is not only happening in HEC but in other organisations and institutions across the country due to prevailing financial crunch.

The recurring budget has been issued but the development budget is yet to be released by finance ministry. In the first quarter, HEC got 15 per cent of the total budget, 7.5 per cent in the second but the third phase has been delayed which has caused shortfall.

As many as 4,000 students studying abroad are unable to meet study expenditures due to delay in funds. Various institutes are facing such difficulties but the issue will be resolved soon, he said.

  • The HEC need to fecilitate the student in the case of attestation of degree.etc..
    i suggest that the my opinion (may b i was wrong) but the university give the degree to student in the form of complete attestation. they provied one time degree which is acceptable in whole world.why always student suffer,one time student go in his board then IBCC and Then HEC..
    why…..this is only increase the revenue?
    if HEC need the revenue then HEC should be order to the university and board.collect the fee at the addmission time and provied complete attested degree to the students..
    the procedure of attestation is ………….
    i hope every one understand.

      I hope it is clear,

    • hello may i know how musc time does hec take for documents attestation????i submit my docx 15 days ago…ub tak nahe aey.wht i do.plx help me if u knw any thing abt that

  • It is a good and nice initiative from the Higher mangement Dr. Mukhtar which will lead to efficient and time saving process. Something is better than nothing

  • salam
    i only want to say that this is a very simple attestation system but the link of attestation is required to search and to work hard. It should be in front of hec website.

  • I find it easier to just buy a local sim card when abroad as usually they have a good internet plan included so i can also surf the web on my laptop!

  • Salam.
    I want to say that HEC must have to provide the verified degrees to the students. It is a matter of great tension that once a student get his degrees from the univ and then he is forced to verify from HEC if he wants to apply Abroad. I say why is it ??? Why a student has to be suffered every time when he wants to aplly for foregin University. It is not economical and also a time consuming process. Thanks

  • Hi,
    Can anyone tell me the way to deposit attestation fees?
    As mentioned on website, applicant is required to transfer online transaction to HEC HBL account, but officer of HBL said that it would charge Rs. 350/- for online transaction.
    Is there any other feasible/cheaper way?

    Thanks

  • It is all illegal, it is not the job of the possessor to get documents attested. It is bullshit. It happens no where in the world.
    WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU HAVE A FAKE ATTESTATION
    They would obviously verify it, then why not verify it with the issuing department.

    The only problem is that we are donkeys ourselves. We don`t ask these assholes that why pay their salaries and they say that staff is getting too much work. These motherfu***** have regional offices but still they will tell you to go to Islamabad HEC(HARAMI EDUCATION COMMISSION).

    If any one wants to SUE them for their NON-PUBLIC SERVICE acts then you can avail my free legal services.

But here I would like to mention a very good service. http://www.Mamooinpakistan.com. These guys are doing such a great and unique work. They are providing all kind of service like Birth Certificates, Degree Attestation, Home Renovation, Property consultancy etc. All Pakistani’s specially Expats are really taking advantage of this service. Recently one my friend living in UAE has got his birth certificate through MamooinPakistan.com service. These guys are reliable, I would recommoned all Pakistanis, who don’t have time to do some home works and documentation etc, should use their service.

  • Students get screwed in obtaining the degree, and then they are screwed to the last in this verification/attestation procedure!

    “Increase in Attestation fee, to encourage genuine applicants”, what rubbish!!!
