According to Director Students’ affairs Rana Tariq Javed on Friday, the students who were granted partial or 35% fee concession, were required to deposit their remaining fee in the relevant bank.

The Vice-Chancellor Professor Dr. Zia-Ul-Qayyum has allowed the applicants to deposit this remaining fee to the designated bank’s branch by 5th November.

If the students or relevant officials face any difficulty in downloading the challan, they could contact the relevant officer of the Directorate of Students Affair for necessary guidance and assistance.

The Vice-Chancellor, Rana Tariq Javed further said, has already allocated sufficient funds in the budget for the fee-concession or fee-waiver under its various scholarship schemes.
