Introduction of Phase I and Phase II:
Previously, the Higher Education Commission (HEC) implemented two initiatives known as the PM National Laptop Scheme Phase-I and Phase-II. In the PMNLS Phase-II, the HEC served as the executing agency, successfully distributing approximately 500,000 laptops to public sector universities and technical colleges, including Federal and FATA colleges. The distribution process was carried out transparently through an online system, and relevant information was made publicly available on the HEC website.
It is widely acknowledged that a nation’s economic progress is closely linked to its intellectual capital. Pakistan possesses a unique demographic advantage, with nearly 63% of its population being below the age of 30. However, this youth bulge can either be advantageous or detrimental to the country depending on how effectively it is addressed. It is crucial for Pakistan to invest in its youth by providing them with quality education, employment opportunities, and avenues for meaningful engagement.
Recognizing the significance of this matter, the government has initiated specific programs aimed at harnessing the potential of the youth, reducing unemployment through skill development, and fostering an entrepreneurial culture.
Prime Minister Youth Laptop Scheme 2023 Phase III
The esteemed Prime Minister of Pakistan has made an announcement regarding the government’s initiative to provide laptops to deserving students. This project aims to extend opportunities in the form of laptops to young and talented students enrolled in public sector Higher Education Institutes (HEIs) across Pakistan, including Azad Jammu & Kashmir. The project, known as the Prime Minister Youth Laptop Scheme (PMYLS) Phase-III, has received approval from ECNEC (Executive Committee of the National Economic Council). As part of this scheme, 100,000 laptops will be granted to deserving students based on merit through a transparent online system. It is worth mentioning that the Higher Education Commission has successfully implemented two similar schemes in the past.
