For the first time, students enrolled in Allama Iqbal Open University are eligible for applying for award of laptops under HEC PM National laptop Scheme. Online applications will be entertained by the HEC PMNLS portal till 15th December, 2015.
Earlier, students enrolled in AIOU or any other distance learning university were not awarded laptops. This year, a right step has been taken for taking the students of AIOU in the coverage of laptop scheme.
Around 100,000 laptops are to be awarded to the students among all public sector universities of Pakistan. In this way, almost 2,500 laptops will be given to AIOU students (campus based + distance learning students).
However, the number of laptops fixed for AIOU students are quite less as more than 600 thousand students are enrolled in different certificate and degree programs of AIOU and the number of awardees will be just like putting a drop in the ocean. Therefore, one out of 250 students of AIOU will be considered eligible.
it is requested to all the students not to miss the chance and every student should apply for laptop scheme before the last date on PMNLS HEC portal.
