In order to give much-needed impetus to higher education in the region, the state government has decided to upgrade Shaheed Bhagat Singh State Technical Campus into a professional university in the coming session.

Divulging the details, MLA Parminder Singh Pinki said the decision was taken during a high-level meeting of a special committee constituted on the instructions of Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh.

As per information, the institute, which at the moment is going through severe financial hardships, will be converted into a university on a cost-sharing model at 60:40 ratio, under which a part of expenses will be borne by the state government and the rest will be provided by the university under self-financing scheme.

Till 2001, the state government was providing requisite funds for the functioning of the college but thereafter, the institute is running under the "self-finance" mode. Notably, the staff members have been protesting against the non-payment of salaries for the past several months. The MLA said he had brought the matter to the CM's knowledge.
