Islamabad:Capital Development Authority (CDA) Chairman Imtiaz Inayat Elahi has assured a delegation of Private Schools Association, Islamabad, of withdrawal of fine imposed on private educational institutions working in the residential area.
The delegation had a meeting with the CDA chairman and urged him to cancel the orders of fine, said President Private Schools Association, Islamabad, Chaudhry Ubaidullah while talking to ‘The News’.
He said that CDA’s deputy commissioner had imposed fine amounting to Rs500,000 each on such schools and ordered their closure, which is totally unjust. “The concerned authorities should take this decision back, as this would not only create problems for private schools but also for students and teachers,” he said.
He said if we would close these schools then students would face many problems, as government does not have capacity to accommodate more than 200,000 students who are studying in the private schools. “Thousands of teachers would become jobless and how the government would provide them jobs,” he said.
Chaudhry Ubaidullah said that the CDA chairman has assured them that the orders of fine would be withdrawn and the matter of closure of private schools would be resolved with the cooperation of all the private schools.The news
