Punjab Government Decides to End Quota System in Universities and Colleges

Lahore: Punjab Government has decided to end quota system in colleges and universities. With the implementation of “End of Quota System in Punjab Universities and colleges” the children and relatives of VIP’s could not be able to get admission and admission would only be granted on merit basis. There are 15% seats reserved for Quota System in Government Colleges and Universities in Punjab.

It is the right of poor and needy but talented students to achieve these seats on merit basis but earlier children and relatives of VIPs with low merit were the emperor under quota system.

After the positive results of removal of quota system in Aitchison College the Punjab government has decided to end this tradition in 12 government colleges and universities. The provincial government has instructed the education department to eliminate the ‘quota’ system in Punjab colleges as well. The ‘quota’ system gives extra powers to vice chancellors of the universities.
