Lahore High Court (LHC) has instructed Punjab University to explain their position in writing in order to recover 10% tuition fee from all Private Law Colleges. The stay has been given to all Private Law Colleges as the decision was passed by Justice Atir Mehmood. It was in the result of a petition filed by 17 different private law colleges against recovering 10% tuition fee by Punjab University. Private Law Colleges Association (PLCA) said that all the private law colleges have paid the registration fee and all other charges to Punjab University in accordance with the law. President of PLCA, Safdar Shaheen himself was made present in the front of LHC.
President further said that we were demanded by Punjab University through a notification to deposit 10% tuition fee. The PLCA angrily put their remarks in the front of court that Punjab University is illegaly demanding the 10% of tuition fee. He stayed committed on his verdict by saying that private law colleges provide education to students in their own capacity then how can the Punjab University ask for tuition fee. The last remarks of President PLCA were to declare the recovery notification as illegal.
LHC instructed Punjab University to submit their reply to the court in black and white with putting a stay on the recovery of 10% tuition fee from all private law colleges.
