Fee concession issue: Peshawar BISE cancels registration of schools
Peshawar: Board of Intermediate and Secondary
Education (BISE), Peshawar, on Friday revoked registration of two elite
schools for not implementing decision of giving half fee concession to
The decision has been taken by the board of directors established
under the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Registration and Functioning of Private
Educational Institution Ordinance 2001, said a notification issued by
the BISE here on Friday.
Peshawar BISE chairman Dr Mohammad Shafi Afridi told Dawn that
registration of various branches of Beaconhouse School System in
University Town, Hayatabad, Peshawar Cantonment and Jamrud Road, and The
City School's senior branch in University Town was suspended for not
giving half fee concession to siblings studying in same private
He said that the decision has been taken unanimously by all 22 members of the board of the regulatory authority.
Under the Education Code 1935, it is binding on private educational institutions to charge half fee from brothers and sisters.
In this connection a notification was issued in July 2007 which
states: "When two or more real brothers and sisters attend the same
school or different schools in the province only the brother or sister
in the higher class of a school should be required to pay the full rate
of fee. The fee payable by other brothers and sisters should not exceed
half of the ordinary rates."
The private schools then challenged this notification in the court,
which rejected their plea. The judgment was delivered by a two-member
bench of the high court on Feb 1, 2011.
The bench had dismissed some writ petitions filed by leading private
schools and declared as legal the notifications which made it binding on
them to extend fee concession to siblings studying in same school. The
BISE chairman, who is also head of the regulatory authority, said that
he had issued several notices to these schools, but they didn't
implement the decision of half fee in their educational institutions

IIUI staff banned from interacting with media
Islamabad: After a series of scandals highlighted by
media, the management of International Islamic University Islamabad
(IIUI) has banned faculty members and staff from interacting with
A circular in this regard has been issued by the management in which
all the staff has been instructed to desist from giving any information
or statement to mediaperson, Dawn has learnt.
According to sources, for the last couple of months the university
has been strewn with a number of scandals which have been highlighted by
the media. The media brought to the fore the adhocism with which the
institute of higher education is being run by the management as the
university could not get a fulltime rector and president in one and half
years. That is why the university has been in the grip of a number of
A faculty member of the university requesting not to be identified
said that this year a case regarding sexual harassment was highlighted
in the media which tarnished the image of the university.
"Then faculty members started leaving the university because of
grouping and internal politics in the university. Although most of the
senior faculty members have been working in other institutes and
non-governmental organisation but when junior teachers start teaching in academies they seek explanation from them," he said.
"Because of internal politics a head of a department had to bow to
the pressure of some faculty members and surrendered his post," he said.
An officer of the university on condition of anonymity said that a
recent inquiry by National Accountability Bureau (NAB) into the
embezzlement in purchase of fuel from 1984 to 2008 by transport section
has badly disturbed the management because there are a number of officers who were allegedly involved in over-billing of fuel.
"They feared that federal (FIA) and other investigation agencies can also start looking into the issues," he said.
Meanwhile, Officers Welfare Association in a meeting, reportedly on
the instructions of the management, on Thursday demanded that issues of
university should not be published in press.
Participants of meeting said that the IIUI administration was
competent, honest and forward looking. The meeting especially pointed
out that whole procedure of purchase and procurement of the university
was transparent and there were no flaws in its functioning. The meeting
was attended by Raja Muhammad Munir, Rana Asghar Ali Shahid, Hawwa
Yasin, Noor Hussain and other members.
On the other hand, the spokesman of the university Hairan Khattak
confirmed that a circular had been issued by the management through
which all the staff has been instructed not to interact with
mediapersons. He, however, said that being a spokesman, he was authorised to speak to media.
"There are some officers who want to defame the university," he said.
He confirmed that NAB had been investigating the embezzlement in
transport section. Since 2011 audit did not find any wrongdoing the
matter would be resolved, he said.
Acting rector of the university Prof. Dr. Masoom Yasinzai while
talking to Dawn said that circular was issued on his instructions
because faculty members were more interested in media interaction than
doing their duty.
"They spend most of the time in meeting foreign missions and media
persons. They should concentrate on their research work, learning and
teaching," he said. Dawn
