School mafia, govt tensions grow; schools association refuses to end strike
LAHORE (92 News) – As the tensions between school mafia and Punjab government grows following the signing of the bill by the Punjab Governor Rafique Rajwana to regulate increase in school fees, the Private Schools Association has refused to end the strike.
According to the law, it would be mandatory to register private education institutions and the private schools would not be able to increase the school fee and schools have to get permission from the government before increasing their fee every year, otherwise the schools administration could be fined Rs 20,000 to Rs 40,000 per month under the law.
On the other hand, the educational institutions could not bound the parents to buy books, uniform or any other material from a specific place or shop.
Following the signing of the bill the Registration Authority for private educational institutions has came into being.
