BA­HAWALPUR—Prof. Dr. Qaiser Mush­taq, Vice Chan­cel­lor of Is­lamia Univer­sity Ba­hawalpur has said that ed­u­ca­tion friendly steps of the Govern­ment have en­sured supremacy of the merit.

Both the fed­eral and pro­vin­cial gov­ern­ments have launched var­i­ous wel­fares scheme for stu­dents which are in fact huge in­vest­ments on our youth with far reach­ing re­sults. Mer­i­toc­racy, en­cour­age­ment and open recog­ni­tion of the tal­ent shows full com­mit­ment of the govern­ment to­wards ed­u­ca­tion.

Prof. Dr. Qaiser Mush­taq ex­pressed these views dur­ing Prime Min­is­ter’s Lap­top dis­tri­bu­tion cer­e­mony at Ab­ba­sia Cam­pus. He said that 1764 stu­dents will re­ceive lap­tops un­der cur­rent phase while 4751 stu­dents have al­ready ben­e­fited from this scheme.

The govern­ment is fo­cus­ing on ed­u­ca­tional de­vel­op­ment of South­ern Pun­jab and ev­ery year num­ber of grants and ben­e­fi­cia­ries are in­creas­ing sig­nif­i­cantly. Rs. 120 mil­lion have been re­im­bursed to 7178 stu­dents of IUB through Prime Min­is­ter’s Fee Re­im­burse­ment Scheme. He said the pro­vin­cial govern­ment through Chief Min­is­ter Pun­jab Ed­u­ca­tion En­dow­ment Fund has dis­bursed Rs. 132 mil­lion among 1113 IUB stu­dents.—Agen­cies
