Good news for students who are worried about paying fees
Fee can be paid via installment to Universities

Punjab Governor Chaudhry Muhammad Sarwar has ordered public and private universities to charge installment fees.

Punjab Governor Chaudhry Muhammad Sarwar, in his capacity as Chancellor, has issued a letter to the Vice-Chancellors of all private and public universities instructing them to provide relief to the students. According to the letter, all universities charge installment fees from students.

Yesterday, the students had requested the provincial minister for higher education to write a letter to the universities seeking relief in payment of fees. The letter said that in view of the situation caused by the corona virus, the students should be given relief in fees and the students should be allowed to pay the fees in installments.

The Governor Punjab has directed that in case of non-payment of fees, any move which could affect the future of the students should be avoided. On the other hand, students protested outside the Lahore Press Club in support of increasing fees in universities, online classes and revival of student unions. Protesters chanted slogans against the government’s poor policies.

Participants held banners and placards with various slogans. The protesting students said that millions of rupees were being charged from the students in the Third World Country by making a mockery of online study. Most of the students in Pakistan are from areas where internet is not available.

The students said that increasing the fees on a daily basis was tantamount to killing the education of poor students at night. The educational policies of the government have failed. The protesters demanded the closure of online classes, reduction of fees and restoration of student unions or else the scope of the protest would be widened.
