In a move to digitalising Punjab, the provincial government has launched Wi-Fi hotspot at over 200 points in five major cities of the province.
In a ceremony held at Arfa Kareem Software Technology park, Punjab’s Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif formally opened the free internet service by pressing a button. The free internet will be available in Lahore, Rawalpindi, Faisalabad, Multan, Bahawalpur and Murree.
He said: “The credit for the project launched with the cooperation of the World Bank goes to the Punjab government team.” The chief minister added that all police stations had also been computerised and the process for FIR has been made paper free, in order to stop manipulation. He praied the role of former IGP in the computerization of police stations and hoped that the new IGP would take this legacy further.
He also announced that a new campus of IT University would be established on Bedian Road within a year.
