LAHORE: A committee constituted to make recommendations about the educational institutions’ fee structure in Punjab Thursday suggested the provincial government to ensure that all employees got their salaries and charged 80 percent fees for the months of April and May.

It further recommended that schools should charge tuition fees on a monthly basis instead of collecting it for three months.

The committee said the government will assist in forwarding lectures and homework to the children through the network of cable operators during the holidays.

The committee also said it had forwarded the recommendations to the Chief Minister Usman Buzdar.

The federal government had announced that education institutions across Pakistan will remain closed till May 31.

The government also announced that the closure would be treated as summer vacation and if the situation improved, the educational institutions would reopen in June.

The Punjab province alone has around 13 million students in government schools alone, stated the report.
