Private schools in Pakistan have made the habit of taking advance fees and increment of fees without any notice or justified reason. However Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa has imposed ban on all private schools from hiking school fees and no collection of advance summer vacation fees from students.
DC Riaz Mehsud was quoted as saying that private school owners will no longer be allowed to receive any payments other than the tuition fees for the months that children are in school.
It is also a fact that the students had to pay fees of June and July in advance.
