On Wednesday, the Punjab state authorities launched the “Chief Minister Scholarship Scheme 2021“ for the students wanting to pursue higher education. The Punjab Cabinet, led by Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi, accorded the approval of this brand-new initiative to supply cheaper and high-quality schooling to government college students.
