As per media reports HEC has taken a decision to investigate the out of merit admission scandal in different universities. For this purpose HEC has directed the universities to submit the admission record of last five years. Punjab government had ended the rural, ministerial, government servants and VVIP quotas in 2008, still HEC received lot of complaints about out of merit admissions in top 10 universities. Punjab University was at the top of the list. According to daily Nai Baat report HEC received dozens of complains about following universities

Not only above mentioned universities but all other public sector universities of Punjab have been directed to send the record of out of merit admission in last five years to Higher Education Commission of Pakistan. HEC will compare the data received from public universities of Punjab with its own record and it will be investigated that data provided by universities is correct or not. In case of finding any irregularities in admission process, strict action will be taken as per law against the administration of concerned university.
