PESHAWAR: The Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) government has increased the monthly educational stipend awarded for girls from Rs200 to Rs500, besides expanding the stipend programme to all districts of the province.

Aimed at promoting the education of girls at the secondary level, the stipend programme had been introduced in the province in 2006, but was later halted for various reasons. 

The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government then restarted the programme in 2013-14
