Private Schools in Islamabad Ordered to Reduce Tuition Fees by 20%

Private Educational Institutions Regulatory Authority (PEIRA) has directed all private educational institutes under the domain of the federal government to reduce the tuition fee by 20 percent received during holidays due to the coronavirus pandemic.

A notification of the authority issued on Wednesday stated that in continuation of its letter dated: 31-03-2020 regarding the closure of all educational Institutions up to May 31, 2020, and Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for all private educational institutions- PEls (up to higher secondary or equivalent level) in Islamabad Capital Territory, the following SOPs are to be strictly adhered to (till May 31.2020).

All PEls must grant a concession of 20% in the monthly fee of students for the month of April and May 2020 (as a financial relief to the parents/guardians) due to nation-wide lockdown owing to the outbreak of Coronavirus pandemic.

However, the said concession policy is not applicable to PEls charging monthly fee less than Rs. 5000. No PEI will collect the fee in advance except on a monthly basis. Therefore any fee challan (If already issued) in violation of this policy may be canceled and new challans for fee collection on a monthly basis are to be issued accordingly. Parents/guardians are also advised to pay the fee in a timely manner.

Services of all staff members, working in PEls (including teaching and non-teaching) are not to be terminated and staff salaries should be paid on a regular basis during the afore-stated period (till May 31. 2020).

Regarding the announcement of Cambridge’s cancellation of school examinations in May/June 2020 and subsequent policy decisions, students who want to appear in CIE’s upcoming examination (October/November 2020 Series) may be permitted in accordance with CIE’s policy. However, the rest of the students may be dealt with as per internal policy of the schools concerned.

Sindh government on Tuesday announced a 20 percent concession in tuition fees of private schools across the province for the months of April and May.

Punjab province was the first to announce such concession on April 06, when Chief Minister (CM) Usman Buzdar announced a reduction in school fees in the province.

  • But how to pay 80% school fee when all the works are closed, except few…
    How poor parents will manage it when works is closed due to lock down ?
    Do you think companies will pay full amount to the salary person, so they can keep running their life circles ? (It may be possible only on papers)

  • Seeking the notification of reducing the school fees of PEIs but only for those schools charging more than Rs. 5000/=, i really felt sorry for the polcy maker. They have just facilitated those parents who already have the capacity to pay well whereas parents like us who can’t afford heavy fees have received no relief from the Federal Government. As a matter of fact without any discrimination all the schools shoukd have been intimated to waive off 20% on Tuition fees to facilitate all the parents in this Pandemic where no one is able to work.

  • Education has been a money making institution in the hands of the rich and influential in Pakistan. Everyone but everyone is forced to BUY education for their children here from commercial institutes, whereas, it SHOULD be the responsibility of STATE to provide FREE Quality Education to children of this country for progressive growth through a ONE SYLLABUS MULTI LANGUAGE spproach exactly like it is in developed and developing countries including India.
    Education mafia se nijaat me mulk ke behtery hy.
