Prime Minister Youth Laptop Scheme 2014 Introduction of Scheme, Eligible Universities / Institutes, Objectives of Scheme, Eligibility Criteria for Laptops, Distribution Criteria, Merit List and Complete Information Regarding PM’s National Laptop Scheme 2014

PM’s National Laptop Scheme introduction 

On the directives of the Prime Minister of Islamic Republic of Pakistan, the Government of Pakistan has initiated a national program for distribution of laptops to young and bright students studying in public sector higher education institutes (HEIs) across the country and Azad Jammu & Kashmir. The scheme is part of the Prime Minister’s Youth Programs for FY2013-14. The Higher Education Commission (HEC) of Pakistan is the executing agency responsible for developing criteria, mechanism, modalities and a road map for procurement and distribution of laptops under this scheme.

In FY 2013-14, 100,000 laptops will be procured and distributed among students as per defined criteria. This has been approved by the Government of Pakistan, and work is underway for procurement and distribution. This document gives guidelines on the procedures which shall be followed as Distribution strategy during the course of project. The document is also meant to maintain the transparency and make the eligibility criteria publically available to both students and the higher education institutes in order to avoid any confusion or ambiguity in the policy and procedure which shall be followed as per the decisions of project Steering Committee.

Objectives

Investment in youth not only has the highest rate-of-return (ROI), but has also been recognized as the best long-term investment for prosperous future of any nation, with a positive demographic dividend.

This realization by the government was the catalyst that crystalized the project to empower youth by giving them laptops for their academic and research activities.

Distribution of laptops is envisioned to bring a paradigm shift in the current education and research culture in the country. In this information age, personal computing devices, like a laptop, is a must especially for students at higher education level.
