Besides, an audit of the colleges will be introduced to streamline higher education system in the state.
The decision was taken at a meeting chaired by Punjab Minister for Higher Education Razia Sultana with the principals of government colleges, the official release said.
“To streamline the higher education system in Punjab, all government colleges will adopt online admissions criteria from next academic session. Each college will be required to submit a monthly progress report of its academic and other activities,” an official spokesman said.
“No Principal will have any power to relax attendance of any student. Necessary directions in this regard will be issued soon by the government. Attendance of students will be marked online from the next academic session,” the spokesman said.
