The Sindh government has directed the private schools to reduce fees by 20 percent for the month of April and May in the wake of coronavirus outbreak.

Sindh Education Minister Saeed Ghani issued a notification on Tuesday.

According to the notification, “The step is being taken to provide relief to parents affected by the lockdown in the current pandemic. The government has also set up a complaint cell for parents in case the private schools do not comply with the directives. Schools are barred from firing any of the staff and teachers and are also directed to pay the salaries on time.”

Earlier this week, the Punjab government also decided to slash school fees by 20 percent throughout the province during the ongoing lockdown.
