    At a time when claims of turning even the most backward region of Punjab into nothing but California are unending, here is a new survey that underlines the massive urban-centric skew. Only 3.71 per cent of students enrolled in professional colleges of Punjab are from a rural background, a Punjabi University Economics Department study has revealed. Reason: complete collapse of the rural government school education system and exorbitant fees.

    Only 2,085 of the 56,240 students enrolled in professional courses run by five state universities and affiliated colleges during the 2007-08 academic session had a rural background. The share of male and female students is 2.87 and 5.27 per cent, respectively. Of the total rural students, nearly 77 per cent were from the general category, 12 per cent belonged to Scheduled Castes and the remaining were BCs.

    The study — ‘Professional Education in Punjab: Exclusion of Rural Students’ — was conducted by Professors of Economics Ranjit Singh Ghuman, Sukhwinder Singh and Jaswinder Singh Brar. It covered Punjab Technical University, Baba Farid University of Health Sciences, Thapar University, Sant Longowal Institute of Engineering and Technology (SLIET), and Rajiv Gandhi National University of Law (RGNUL).

    Individual institution wise data is worse: PTU has only 2.97 per cent rural students, Thapar University 0.30 per cent, SLIET 1.81 per cent, RGNUL 1.88 per cent and at BFUHS 4.27 per cent. The B.Sc Nursing course has a rural strength of 22.63 per cent.

    Even of these rural students, a high proportion come from educated families and only 1.5 per cent are from economically poor households The fee structure for an engineering course at Thapar University is Rs 1.2 lakh, PTU Rs 71,300 and SLIET Rs 47,200. For the MBBS course, per student annual expenditure in government medical college was just Rs 13,500, whereas in private medical colleges, it was Rs 1.13 lakh.

    Unfortunately The above is true for the majority of India.Education is for people from urban cities,children belonging to educated families,or rich families.If you are born in rural undeucated family with not much money then there is hardly any chance that you will get a proper education

    It is one of the main reason why people of Punjab are going outside India.

    WE CAN HELP..by ADOPTING and SPONSORING good RURAL students from OUR OWN VILLAGES...

    Ranghi JI,
    Gurfateh.

    ACTUALLY....GURDWARAS in INDIA..especially PUNJAB..have VAST ESTATES....lands attached to them.
    Are you aware that the SGPC Gurdwaras ACT 1925 has a SPECIFIC Clause that says that...ALL GURDWARAS MUST make use of their Lands and Properties available for EDUCATION PURPOSES...promote the SIKH Community to ADVANCE.
    Under the Badal Administration the SGPC Gurdwara lands have been SOLD off/********d/lie UNUSED. This Clause of The SGPC Act is IGNORED.
    Recently a WORLD SIKH GURU GRANTH SAHIB UNIVERSITY was launched in Anandpur Sahib.
    First the word SIKH was objected to and REMOVED. Then the Words Guru Garnth sahib were objected to and REMOVED. Now the "WORLD UNIVERSITY" has been REGISTERED to an INDIVIDUAL !! whiel all the Money cmae form the GOLUCK of the PANTH.
    NOW THIS is Right under the NOSES of PUNJABIS....IF THEY ALLOW such daylight ROBBERY...and then wait for the FOREIGN SIKHS/GURDWARAS to Donate and make Punajb into a "gold state"????
    For the Past 100 YEARS FOREIGN SIKHS have been POURING GOLD into PUNJAB....a virtual RIVER of GOLD is INCOMING to PUNJAB/INDIA from Foreign SIKHS...what the Saadhs and sants deras gyanis ragis etc etc collect is NOT part of this "river of Gold"....
    Its the PUNJAB SIKHS who MUST wake UP..and Save themsleves...GOD also helps those who help themlseves....
    We the Foreign Siksh are ever ready to help...again and again...BUT the Punjabis must also WAKE UP !!!
