ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad High Court (IHC) Wednesday allowed private schools of the federal capital to collect summer vacations fees from students and disposed of the petition in this regard.

Justice Miangul Hassan Aurangzeb of IHC conducted the hearing over the petition of private schools association sent by the Supreme Court. Earlier a single member bench of IHC had prohibited schools from charging summer vacation fees from the students, but the apex court had turned down the order.

The IHC bench also ordered the schools’ administration to adjust the amount already received by the parents against fees for the period. Previously, a single member bench of IHC comprising Justice Shaukat Aziz Saddiqui had passed an order barring private schools from taking summer vacation fees from parents. Private schools later moved the Supreme Court against the decision of IHC.
