The Islamabad High Court (IHC) ordered on Friday that all private schools will not collect fees from students during summer vacations.
According to the Geo news, this decision was announced by the High court judge Justice Shaukat Aziz while hearing an appeal filed by the Private Educational Institutions Regulatory Authority (PEIRA).
Judge Siddiqui ordered, an adjustment should be given to the parents who have submitted the summer tuition fees. The court ruling will only be implemented in the capital city.
During the hearing, the High court judge Justice Shaukat Aziz asked about the role of the PEIRA in this case, to which, the counsel for the applicant said that the court had overturned its authority and an appeal in this regard is pending with the court.
The private schools used to collect advance fees of three months June, July and August for nothing.
The lawyer further said that the high courts in Lahore, Peshawar and Sindh have already issued stay orders over the summer vacation fees issue.
