Islamabad: Speculations about establishment of the University of Baltistan have come to an end. The Gazette of Pakistan has published the charter of the Gilgit-Baltistan region’s second university, which will be based in Skardu.

Establishment of the University of Baltistan was promised by ousted Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.

Published in the Gazette in the month of August, the “University of Baltistan Order 2016” is now making rounds on the social media.

The university’s establishment will create more educational opportunities for the 1.5 million people of the Gilgit-Baltistan region.
