Autonomy to 26 Colleges: Minister
PUNJAB Minister for Education Mujtaba Shuja-ur-Rehman has said the government will never privatise any college, adding only financial and administrative autonomy is being awarded to 26 colleges where a four-year bachelor degree programme is being introduced.
He expressed these views while meeting a delegation of Muslim League workers on Sunday.
He said these steps had been taken to bridge the gap between the universities and the colleges.
He further said the board of governors would not be authorised to increase any fee, as additional expenditure would be borne by the Punjab government which would provide Rs 500 millions additional grant to these colleges annually for providing quality education to the students.
