Lahore: A committee advising on the structure of tuition fees by educational institutions in Punjab on Thursday suggested that these institutions pay their employees during the coronavirus pandemic.
The committee has made recommendations stating that educational institutions should charge 80% of the costs in April and May.
It also suggests that schools should charge tuition fees monthly instead of three months.
The council said the government will assist in the education and homework of children through the cable operator network during the holidays.
The committee also stated that it had forwarded the proposal to chief Minister Punjab Usman Buzdar.
The federal government has announced that educational institutions across Pakistan will be closed until May 31. The government also announced that the closure would be considered a summer vacation, and educational institutions would reopen in June, as conditions improve.
The report states that Punjab alone has about 13 million students in public schools alone.
There are currently more than 2,300 cases of coronavirus in Pakistan. Punjab was hit hardest, with over 914 cases and 11 deaths.
