    May like to consider HITEC University Taxila Cantt as well?

  2. Has the standard of education improved with the proliferation of Universities in major cities of Pakistan? Is it possible for children with meagre resources to benefit from the available educational facilities? In my humble opinion, unless we rehash the entire system of education in the country and allocate larger chunks of annual budget to Education, we will continue to grope in darkness of jihalat.

    • Sir, standard of education has decreased. Education has become so expensive that people with meagre resources just can’t think of getting their children admitted in these universities. Education is a Business now. I agree with your suggestion of more budget for education.
