The registration of the five private schools in Punjab has reportedly been revoked by the Punjab education department on Tuesday.
According to the details, the registrations were revoked after they failed to comply with the orders of the Lahore High Court (LHC) to reduce the fees.
The Lahore High Court (LHC) had ordered the private schools to charge the same fees they charged in January 2017. The high court further ordered that the private institutes could only increase their fees by 5-8 percent annually.
The education department of Punjab revoked the registrations of 29 branches of five private educational institutes. As per the details, the private schools were failed to reduce their fees despite several notices served to them by the concerned authorities.
After the decision taken by the education department, the educational institutes can no longer continue their operations. If they do so, they will be sealed by the concerned authorities.
To restart their operations in the province, these educational institutes will have to cut their tuition fees as per the orders of the Lahore High Court (LHC).
These private schools will also have to get themselves registered with the education department of Punjab again which might cost them millions of rupees.
