The Supreme Court of Pakistan ordered on Friday all private schools across the country to restore their fees to that of January 2017.

The apex court issued a written verdict pertaining to the case today. The 69-page verdict was written by Justice Ijazul Ahsan.

It declared any increase in fees after January 2017 null and void, directing private schools to adjust the additional amounts they charged in future dues.

The apex court said in the verdict that private schools would only be able to charge fees that would be approved by the concerned regulator. Schools were also barred from increasing their fees by more than 5% a year.

The court said that a complaint cell would also be established with regard to the issue.

Chief Justice Asif Saeed Khosa clarified that the verdict is applicable to all private schools across the country.

Justice Faisal Arab, who was part of the three-member bench, wrote a dissenting note stating that the yearly increase in fees should be 8%, instead of 5%. The court had announced a short verdict in the case on June 12.

    Really good to hear that..but it will be much better if the schools will strictly follow these rules…it should be implemented soon..the rule makers should pressurize the schools to follow this at any cost..otherwise its no use of this decision…

    Today i have received Becanhouse Potohar campus G.T road Rawalpindi school fee receipts for Aug and Sep-2019. surprise to see the fee receipts.

    1. Supreme court ordered 13-Sep-2019, All private schools restore the school fee in January 2017. It declared any increase in fees after January 2017 null and void, directing private schools to adjust the additional amounts they charged in future dues.
    2. Secondly SC order was to increase annually 5% fee.

    MY child fee was January 2017 PKR 14,600/- Now i have received the fee receipts PKR 19,386 for KG class.
    secondly SC order was 5% increase but they are increased 8% .
    Thirty the are full charged the Summer vacations fees.

    It means Becanhouse school system management totally rejected the Supreme court order.

      Exactly same thing happened in Beacnhouse PWD branch. They raised the fee from 14000 to 19000.
      We should take a stand on it as it comes under contempt of court.
