The Future of Students Studying in Private Universities is in Danger
A resolution demanding reduction in fees of private universities was also submitted to the Punjab Assembly. League MPA Sadia Teymour demanded that the government direct the universities to reduce the fees like the Punjab schools.
According to details, PML-N MPA Sadia Teymour said in the resolution that the financial resources of the majority of students are limited, due to which university fees are barely paid while a large number of students have to take temporary jobs to pay the fees. She said that their parents are worried about the deteriorating economic situation in the country while the issue of payment of students’ fees has become difficult for them.
Parents of students studying in private and public universities have demanded concessions in fees and waiver of taxes on these fees in the current situation. According to him, the provision of education in civilized societies is the first priority and responsibility of the government.
That is why the literacy rate is high all over the world but the situation in Pakistan is very deplorable due to the lack of government and especially professional educational institutions.
It should be noted that the Punjab government, in principle recognizing the demands of private universities, had set up an implementation committee called “Higher Education Reforms”. The eight-member committee had four members representing private universities while four members were drawn from the Higher Education Department and Higher Education Commission Punjab.
The committee came into being after successful negotiations between Raja Yasir Humayun, Provincial Minister for Higher Education and Dr Chaudhry Abdul Rehman, Chairman, Private Universities Association. On the other hand, Punjab University has released the schedule of examinations at the level of graduation and masters. The university has announced to start the examinations for graduation and masters degree from July 22.
