Punjab Government has planned to distribute 100,000 laptops amongst the top achievers in MS (Hons.), MA, MSC, LLB programmes, said an advertisement published in today’s papers.
All those students who achieved more than 60 percent marks in last annual examination or scored more than 70 percent in their last semester are eligible for the offer.
In addition, all registered students for MS, LLM, Ph.d and M.Phil will also get a free laptop.
Top 100 position holders from all Punjab boards in their matriculation examinations are going to get free laptops too.
One hundred thousand Laptops will be provided to following categories of youth in Punjab:
In case of 1st year students, the data for the last examination in which the student appeared, shall be considered.

On a side note, Mr. Shahbaz Sharif has advertised his Twitter and Facebook IDs on the same advert, which I believe is somewhat unethical. He’s using public ad to promote his personal channels. I won’t complain if he wants to advertise these channels through his own ads, paid from his own pocket.
