Female students in Punjab will receive scooties and bikes on easy installments from Punjab government in the New Year. Announcing the scheme, Wasiq Qayyum Abbasi, Chairman Punjab Education Forum, said that it is an initiative of the government to make transportation easy for girl students. While scooties and bikes will be given to female students, male students in degree and University courses will receive help for purchasing cycles.
The Chairman added that students will benefit greatly from this scheme as they will be required to pay easy and low installments for these vehicles. He said that female students at metric and intermediate levels will be provided with travelling vouchers to make it easier for them to reach their educational institutions on time. Students, particularly female students, have to waste a lot of time on pick and drop from their relatives at present.

Abbasi said that these scooties were required by working women also to make their transportation fast and cheap.
