On Thursday, Sindh High Court (SHC) has ordered the provincial government to take action against any schools that are still refusing to give a 20% concession on fees announced by the government for the coronavirus emergency period.
According to the details, the court directed the Director-General Private Schools to ensure that the educational institutions follow the order.
The court also urged the parents to lodge complaints about any schools that are not giving the concession.
In the orders, SHC remarked that “DG Private Schools should take action after receiving complaints,”
Furthermore, the court directed the government to submit a report within 20 days on the implementation of orders.
Private schools and non-government organizations had respectively challenged and supported the Sindh COVID-19 Emergency Relief Ordinance that had bound educational institutions to not charge more than 80% of the total monthly fees.
