In the wake of technological leaps over recent decades and consequent paradigm shift in educational sector paving way for new concepts in the world of learning, PGC timely realized the transition and challenges associated with it. PGC, therefore, submitted a petition to the Government of Punjab, in August 1996, seeking permission to establish a university in the province. A No Objection Certificate was issued in October 1999. The charter to establish the University of Central Punjab (UCP) was awarded in April 2002.
