Govt Announced “Laptop for All” Scheme for Pakistani Students

On Thursday, the federal government announced a new initiative aimed at enhancing educational opportunities for students in Pakistan. The “Laptop for All” scheme will launch next year, providing students with access to laptops through an interest-free loan program.

Rana Mashhood, Chairman of the Prime Minister’s Youth Program (PMYP), unveiled the scheme during a press conference. He emphasized the government’s commitment to supporting students by enabling them to acquire laptops from banks without incurring any interest.

“The government is making efforts to provide interest-free laptops to students through banks, and a final decision on this will be taken within two or three days,” Mashhood stated. He acknowledged the financial challenges currently faced by the interim government and the constraints imposed by the International Monetary Fund (IMF). Despite these hurdles, the government will include the “Laptop for All” scheme in the upcoming fiscal budget.

Mashhood explained that the previous year saw an interim government in place, which limited the ability to implement the scheme due to a short window for budget preparation. This delay meant that laptops could not be provided to students as initially planned. However, with the new fiscal budget on the horizon, the government will fulfil this promise.

Access to technology has become increasingly important in education, particularly in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has accelerated the shift towards digital learning.

By providing laptops, the government aims to support students in their studies, enhance their learning experiences, and equip them with the skills needed in the modern world. This initiative will benefit a large number of students across Pakistan, helping them to stay connected, access online resources, and participate in virtual classes and assignments.

By offering interest-free loans for laptops, the government is taking a proactive approach to enhance educational opportunities and bridge the digital divide. With the inclusion of this initiative in the next fiscal budget, students across Pakistan can look forward to improved access to technology, which is essential for their academic success and future career prospects.
