education suffers from a lack of similar support and funding, affecting education quality. To address this, the AJK government has requested Rs. 5 billion in the recurrent budget for 2024-25. This grant is essential to overcoming fiscal challenges and ensuring the continuation of educational activities.
University officials have submitted detailed documents and a formal request for this funding, urging prompt action from the Prime Minister and relevant authorities. This grant aims to bring AJK universities in line with their counterparts in other provinces, which receive adequate funding from their provincial governments.
The call for action is crucial for securing the long-term future of higher education in AJK. Universities play a pivotal role in regional socio-economic development, fostering innovation, research, and global competitiveness. Timely allocation of funds is imperative to prevent financial collapse and ensure the sustainability of these institutions, vital for the development of the region and the country.
