ISLAMABAD: Chief Justice Supreme Court of Pakistan on Tuesday ruled that committee formed to regulate private school fee will decide increase in admission and monthly fee.

Hearing a case related to admission and monthly fee of private schools, a three judge bench headed by Chief Justice Saqib Nisar inquired secretary to explain why this issue has not been decided.

The secretary law said that private schools owners wanted an increase of eight to ten percent.

The chief justice observed that committee will decide increase in fee not the owners. He remarked that in spite of setting up of a committee, the owners are increasing fee on their own choice.

Chief Justice Saqib Nisar observed that he would head the committee meeting which must be attended by auditor general and federal ombudsman to resolve the fee issue.
