LAHORE: The Punjab School Education Department has rejected the application of private schools for hiking annual tuition fees up to eight per cent, ARY News reported on Friday.
Three private schools have sent the application to the provincial authorities for seeking an annual increase in tuition fees up to eight per cent.
Punjab Education Minister Murad Raas issued directives to the private schools for not making an increase more than the proposed ratio which is five per cent.
