Furthermore, many local universities have already started operations in some other states, but it is necessary to bring sizable foreign investments to build this sector more. For FY2017-18, the government has allocated Rs35,662.801 million for HEC in Public Sector Development Program (PSDP). The government official reported that the total amount of Rs9,188.651 million has been earmarked for the latest programs of HEC, while Rs26474.150 million will be spent on the present ongoing projects/programs.
