We are an Authority under the title “Punjab Daanish Schools and Centers of Excellence Authority” established by the Government of Punjab through an Act passed by the legislature. The Act clearly describes the functions of the Authority and particularly the criteria for admission which is solely based on poverty and income levels. The schools are meant only for the marginalized girls and boys of the community who need special attention by the Gocernment. However, 10% quota has also been reserved for self-finance students.
“The Punjab Daanish Schools and Centers of Excellence Authority Act, 2010”, was passed in February, 2010. Given the commitment of the Government, the Authority is headed by the Chief Executive. It has a body of legislative members, well known educationists, members of international community, as well as related bureaucracy.
In Phase-I, the Daanish Schools have been established in the Southern Region of Punjab, where the need is greatest. Construction for the following schools started in September / December, 2009.
