Punjab govt to provide 20000 e-bikes in easy installments to students

The Punjab govt has planned to provide 20000 e-bikes in easy installment plans to students. The govt of Punjab under Chief Minister Maryam Nawaz approved a plan to provide 20000 e-bikes to students in affordable installments.

The Punjab Chief Minister authorized the proposal during her third cabinet meeting. CM Maryam said e-bikes are essential to reduce pollution. However, they are not recently suitable because of battery theft and low mileage.

She also stated that the government has agreed to supply fuel and electric bikes on easy installment plans. The down payment will be reduced to Rs25,000 to lessen students’ financial burden. However, the monthly installment will also be less than Rs5,000.

This bike distribution will begin in May 2024. Maryam also announced a separate program to provide motorcycles to outstanding performers.

The decision to provide bikes to students in affordable installments was made in response to former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s desire to facilitate students. CM Maryam with her father Nawaz Sharif held a meeting about the up-gradation of transport facilities for students in the region.
