Atta Shad Degree College is facing numerous problems as there are no necessary facilities available. It is unfortunate that students face difficulties because of lack of facilities and qualified teachers. The increment in admission fee yearly is the main problem that the poor pupils are unable to submit their fee. The college also has a poor infrastructure and lacks departments such as psychology, computer science. It is a matter of concern that there is no availability of electricity in extreme hot weather either. The depleted water facility is also a problem. I request the government to take serious steps to solve the matter.
