Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday launched Scholarship Complaint Portal for early redressal of complaints by the students awarded scholarships.
Addressing the launching ceremony in Islamabad, he said the primary objective of the portal is to establish an exclusive facility for students getting an education on scholarship for their help and resolution of complaints.
The Prime Minister said the portal will also ensure transparency and meritocracy in the scholarship process. The meritocracy will provide opportunities to those from far-off regions.
He said a panel of academics will monitor the portal and new subjects and disciplines will be added for scholarships as per market demand.
Speaking on the occasion, Minister for Federal Education Shafqat Mahmood said the government has increased the number of scholarships for postgraduate and undergraduate students, which is unprecedented in the history of Pakistan.
He said the government has established 28 new universities and allocated 123 billion rupees for higher education. The minister said the government’s initiative of the Single National Curriculum will prove to be a milestone in national building.
