"Technical Education and Vocational Training Authority (TEVTA) has provided interest-free loans worth Rs 1 billion to 18,000 students across the province." Chairman TEVTA Irfan Qaiser Sheikh said this while chairing a meeting at TEVTA Secretariat, here on Wednesday.

He also said that at the end of the first year of his
tenure as Chairman TEVTA, a surplus amount of Rs 500 million was available. To utilize this amount for the students, TEVTA decided to provide interest-free loans to its passing out students and an agreement was signed with Akhuwat Foundation in this regard, he added.

Nations who realize the importance of youth and how to properly utilize them are now ruling the world, fortunately, we now have realize this fact and are investing on our youth, he said adding, the result of this investment will bring more strengthen and stable economy of the country.
