All private schools have to reduce their fees by 20%: chief justice

January 4, 2019

The chief justice has reminded private schools in Pakistan that the Supreme Court’s order that schools must reduce their fees by 20% was not just for 22 schools.

During a hearing at the Supreme Court on Friday, he said all private schools must reduce their fees by 20% and return or adjust half the fees they charged students for the summer break.

Related: Private schools charging more than allowed 8% now have to cut their fees by 20%

Justice Saqib Nisar said the court never ordered the authorities to freeze the bank accounts of any schools.

He also said that no school will be allowed to shut down, nor will it be allowed to kick students out over this matter.

    This is the message that I received from Bahria Town School

    Fee Vouchers F/M of Jan-19 have been dispatched with a due date of Jan 11, 19. The Supreme court order for 20% reduction in fee and adjustment of summer fee has been imposed on high fee schools only which have been specifically named in the SCP’s order. It does not apply to any other low to medium fee schools including Bahria Town School.

    I want to draw the attention towards (HFS) Hira Foundation School situated in the premises of Jamia Darul Uloom Korangi Karachi

    The school is charging monthly fee on their normal mode irrespective the SC (Supreme Court) order whereby reduction of 20% form those upscale of Rs. 5000 monthly fees. The order says to reduce 20% reduction for all schools without any exception but the school management decimates the SC decision by laming to them as “Trust”.

    The fee structure of HFS starts from Rs 7,500/- permonth plus bi-annual fee. Further, they are reluctant to return 1 month last summer vacation fee as well.

    It is requested to please take an aggressive and strict action against them since there is no way written that they are “Trust” and SC order is extensive for all school.

    Please be noted that schools have started complying with Apex Court’s orders, however, resentment/non-compliance is still being seen from a large lot of private schools. I encourage you to resolve this matter amicably but, in my opinion, all efforts made by you will be of no vain.

    A legal recourse to this matter “will” ensure that you are not being extorted of your hard-earned money by such delinquent educational institutions.

    I am a practicing lawyer of High Courts of Pakistan and can be of assistance to you, should you desire to pursue this matter legally.

    We are continuing comments on this page. but our government and Sindh board and jurisdiction is not taking any serious action on it. Are they playing with parents emotions. I don’t know who will give us support to get the job done. If any one want to meet and make a plan for protest against SCHOOL FEE REDUCTION. we as number of parents will go to supreme court with media and ask them where is the NOTIFICATION. Why school are still charging same fees. This is going to be very critical on day by day to accommodate the monthly school fees.
