Viqarunnisa Noon School and College fee hike blocked

A fee hike imposed by the ad hoc committee running Viqarunnisa Noon School and College has been blocked by the High Court on Monday.

It has also issued a rule asking why the ad hoc committee running the educational institution in Dhaka will not be declared illegal and unconstitutional.

Within the next four weeks, education secretary and nine others have been asked to reply.

The order was issued by a High Court bench of justices Zinat Ara and Kazi Md. Ejarul Haque Akondo after hearing a petition on Monday.

The petition was filed by lawyer Yunus Ali Akhand who argued his own case.

The panel hiked monthly tuitions for the school section by Tk 300 and by Tk 500 in the college section. It has also imposed an annual Tk 500 fee on student.

The ad hoc committee’s fee hike has been blocked for one year.
