The Federal Government has made a formal notification announcing the relaunch of the laptop scheme. The Prime Minister issued the initial directives for this laptop plan, which is now being implemented again. Shaza Fatima Khawaja, the Special Assistant to the Prime Minister (SAPM) on Youth Affairs, confirmed the report.
According to a special assistant, around 100,000 laptops would be handed to gifted students.
SAPM made this announcement during a press conference attended by Federal Minister of Information and Broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb.
According to a special assistant, around 100,000 laptops would be handed to gifted students. It is also revealed that the allotment for Balochistan would be tripled.
According to sources, this revived laptop effort is being managed by the prime minister’s youth scheme (PMYP).
Not only that, but a second possibility for a skills development program is being built in combination with the laptop scheme for the upbringing of talent. This scheme will provide IT training to around 100,000 children.
Dr. Mukhtar Ahmed, the chairman of the Higher Education Commission (HEC), has already hinted at the continuation of this laptop initiative. In October, a hint was dropped.
In addition, he has issued a statement regarding the launch of online courses for the benefit of college students, as well as partnerships with Microsoft and other foreign corporations. HEC will formally introduce all of this.
