Punjab clears the air about ban on co-education in colleges

LAHORE – Punjab Higher Education Minister Raja Yassir Humayun Sarfraz on Thursday rejected the rumours that the provincial authorities had imposed a ban on co-education in private colleges.

Sarfraz issued the statement after social media users hit out at the government over reports of banning co-education.

"Higher Education Department has not issued any notification about co-education in colleges. Please stop spreading fake news on media," the provincial minister wrote on Twitter.

Meanwhile, the Directorate of Public Instruction (DPI) (Colleges) Punjab also clarified that it had not announced any condition of submitting a “no co-education” affidavit for private colleges to launch different academic programmes.

It said that the department has not issued any notification in this regard.

But, a checklist of DPI Colleges had a clause under which private colleges were required to file an affidavit of “no co-education” to launch intermediate, associate degree and postgraduate programmes.

A media report said that the checklist contains such a condition but it was not implemented.
