It has been announced by the Private Educational Institutions Regulatory Authority (PEIRA) that there will be a reduction in the tuition fees of the private schools of Islamabad by 20%. This would be maintained until the coronavirus outbreak is contained. The aim of this step is to provide financial relief to the masses amidst the lockdown.
Also, all the private schools are permitted to grant new admissions on the school leaving certificates basis from the earlier attended schools/institutes.
All private schools have been directed by PEIRA to make sure that they comply with the latest orders that have been issued. Also, a warning is given that strict action would be taken against the schools that violate the orders.
Earlier, back in April PEIRA made the announcement regarding a 20% reduction in tuition fees of all the private schools in Islamabad.
