Punjab Announces 20% Reduction in School Fees

After consultation with private school owners, the Punjab government has announced a 20 percent reduction in school fees for the month of April and May.

This was announced by the Chief Minister Usman Buzdar on Monday in a Twitter post. Schools have been directed to collect the amount on a monthly basis instead of collecting a lump sum amount.

Earlier last month, CM Buzdar had formed a two-member team consisting of Minister for School Education, Murad Raas, and Law Minister, Raja Basharat, to conduct meeting with the private school owners in this regard.

The meeting had taken place last Monday in which most of the representatives had asked for two-days time to respond to the government’s call.


  • Is there any official notification issued to the concerned on 20% reduction in school fee?

  • my message for Prime minister Mr. Imran Khan and Chief minister of punjab Mr. Usman Buzdar.
    I really appreciated to you government is working good but I urge you to think about it perons which are lived in rented house because they have not other income resources. They are currently unemployment.
    Kindly officially instructions to owners of houses they do not receive rent from the until the virus are removed.

    I really appreciated to you if implement.

  • I m really disappointed with what the hell is doing the government they have just given the lollipop of 20% fee deduction to the people according to the government notification 20% fee deduction only applies on 6000 or more than and 10% fee deduction on less then 6000 fee and their is another bull shitt that is those students will not get the concession who are already getting sibling concession or any other special concessions at this time when actually the common person is suffering from pandemic sitution is that a relief for the common people that government is taking about. Less than 6000 fee is being paid by the people who belongs to the middle or lower class this relief should be given to them and the concession should be equally applies. In this difficult time when everyone is stuck at their home and all the income sources are being stuck in this situation the government should think about the common person but still they took steps in the interest of schools mafia this is really very shameful
