The inspection team comprising the Directorate of Colleges (Lahore Division) inspected a select pool of private colleges that offered BS (Hons) courses. Only 2 institutions fulfilled requirements as per higher education standards.

In principle, the Directorate of Public Instruction (DPI) is the final authority that approves the issuance of BS (Hons) degrees. After a detailed inspection, the team ordered 27 colleges to remove the underlying curriculum and devise a concrete plan to address the missing infrastructural needs.

The private colleges eligible for BS Honors degrees were commended by the inspection team for fulfilling standards as per DPI criteria.
