PM laptop scheme announced, up to Rs. 2 million loan for students

PM laptop scheme announced, up to Rs. 2 million loan for studentsPrime Minister Laptop scheme has been announced for the young and educated people all over the country, announced by Federal Finance Minister – Ishaq Dar in the budget 2013-2014 speech.

All the students who are having higher education in Pakistan from reputed institutions which are recognized by Higher Education Commission (HEC) will have a chance to claim a laptop.

PML-N government has allocated Rs. 3 billion for the scheme and HEC has been directed to form an eligibility criteria in the coming days which will be advertised later.

The scheme is an upgraded version of Free Laptop scheme which was launched by Chief Minister of Punjab Mian Shahbaz Sharif in January 2012 while distributing 100000 Dell laptops among the graduates and post graduate students of the province. Later Shahbaz Sharif distributed 100000 more laptops among the students.

The announced laptop scheme is from the federal government, it is still possible to see a separate scheme coming from provincial governments such as Punjab and KPK.

Apart from the laptop scheme, government has also announced several scholarship and youth training programs.

Students who have done masters and are unable to find a job will be offered 1 year internship in government and public corporations and Rs. 10,000 stipend every month will be paid to them during the period.

Students from the less developed areas who are getting professional education, for example, doctors and engineers, will have their fee paid by federal government. Mostly, students from interior Sindh, Southern Punjab and Baluchistan will be accommodated.

Details of Loans and 6 Schemes announced by Nawaz Sharif

Loans will be given to students who want to become entrepreneurs. Rs. 1 lack to Rs. 2 million loan will be given on 8% markup through regular banks to the students having technical education who desire to start their own business.  The difference between regular markup in the market and announced markup of 8% will be borne by federal government.

    Dear All Pakistani’s
    A.o.A
    As all of us know that it is good scheme for all educated peaple, students as well as for those students who want to promote thier busuness or study, but we are seeing here that it’s only a limited scheme arround punjab specially in lahore. And Prime Minister had forgot Gilgit Baltistan, Till now 1 laptop had not issued to GBL students , Are they Not pakistani? are they not student? Are they not want to improve or promote thier studies?
    Why are the neglected in every field of life? It is un-justice with GBL students.
    It is my request to Prime Minister Miyan Mohd Shahbaz Sharif and all those who manage these schemes to think about GBL people.

    Sir how longer we would have to Waite for formal Laptop Scheme registration, It has been quite a long time from October 3rd 2013 that was given a deadline for registration, I would glad to know about registration method, whether we would be directly asked to submit a form in our institutes or unsolicitedly our institute will itself produce list of candidates enrolled with them……………… Previously Khyberpakhtunkhwa had a very wired criteria for distribution of laptop that was purely based on nepotism and lack of technical thinking, Even Urdu literature students had been given a laptop but not student of commerce and computer science, We are eagerly waiting for this initiative because we know we would be heard this time

      We karachi’ites has nothing in these schemes, we need our own setup of Syed Mustafa Kamal, who was a unique of its own type. Come again Mustafa Kamal.

      Then we will these these PPP PML Feudal lords kay kaam kaisay hota hai or development kisey kehte hain

    • Sadia says

      Bad news!bhai laptop distribution is only among newly admitted students who are in there 1 semester or so.because a couple of my acquaintances did not get laptop though they were on merit but they were not newly admitted ,in second ,3 Rd semester or so.
      There is a policy fault. hope this will be amended this year.

  50. shakeel ahmad says

    i think lap top scheme should be banned because our genious ,doctors and engineers are being spoiled through this scheme. i being a teacher present a resolution of condemnation of it. if at all it should be necessary it should be provided to the m.phil or p.h.ds pupils so that they may utilize this for reseach purposes
