Higher Education Department (HED) has announced winter vacations and issued a notification in this regard.

According to notification, all the universities and colleges will observe winter holidays from December 23 to January 6. The classes will be resumed from January 7.

The School Education Department (SED) had already announced the winter holidays after court’s orders on the same dates.

The Punjab and Federal governments could not finalize the dates for winter vacations as the Federal Minister for Education Shafqat Mahmood wanted to shift these vacations from December to end of the January citing several reasons.
