HEC Budgetary Allocations


The Vice-Chancellors’ Committee has urged the government to revisit its decision regarding budgetary cut, especially the recurring budget of the higher education sector and announce a supplementary grant for universities. A meeting of the committee was held at the Higher Education Commission (HEC) Islamabad to discuss the challenges arising out of the budgetary cuts for the higher education sector.

Federal Minister for Education and Professional Training Shafqat Mahmood has denied any budgetary cut in the allocation of fund for Higher Education Commission (HEC) Pakistan. Responding to the queries put forth by students and educationists, following his thorough presentation on “Education System of Pakistan: Challenges and Way Forward” organized by Karachi School of Business and Leadership (KSBL) on Thursday, he dismissed the news concerning slashing of HEC budgetary allocations.
