Lawyers move PHC against hike in fee of educational institutions
April 20, 2017

PESHAWAR, 20 April: The Peshawar Bar Association (PBA) has approached the Peshawar High Court (PHC) to look into the increase in admission and monthly fee at the private and semi-government educational institutions across Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

The PBA filed a writ petition through lawyer Fazal Shah Mohmand on behalf of its president Fazle Wahid and general secretary Ashfaq Khalil to seek directions of the court to the schools to reduce the fee.

The petition has made the KP chief secretary, secretary Elementary and Secondary Education and secretary Higher Education Department, vice-chancellor and registrar University of Peshawar, chairman Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education Peshawar and Private Schools Association and other educational institutions parties in the matter.

The petition said private and semi-government educational institutions had increased admission and other fees without any reason and created financial problems for the parents. It pleaded the court to direct the government to immediately establish a regulatory body for monitoring of the private educational institutions as parents were not in a position to pay the high fees.
