Private schools -vs- Cantonment Board Faisal
Karachi: The multi-faceted education
system in Pakistan is ruining the learning capabilities of students, said
Private School Management Association (PSMA) Chairman Sharafuz Zaman on Wednesday.
"Different authorities have been
threatening the private schools system of the city, without realizing that these
private schools share more than 60 percent of the burden of education," said
Zaman. While addressing a press conference, he informed the media that the
Cantonment Board Faisal (CBF) recently issued notices (Letter No.
CBF-9/Notice/G.Jauhar/Genl/5055 dated: July 19, 2008) to private schools of
Gulistan-e-Jauhar. The schools were told to either to register their buildings
as commercial properties with the CBF or face closure, after the recent
promulgation of the CBF Building By-Laws, 119 of 2008.
"If the CBF does not
withdraw the notices, then the PSMA will be compelled to close all schools
within the CBF jurisdiction and all over the city," he said. Sindh Private
Schools Management Association Chairman Khalid Shah said that the
CBF measures posed a major threat to private school operators and could not be
ignored. "We fully support the PSMA and will support them in any matter related
to the future of private schools. If the notices are not withdrawn, no school
belonging to the private sector will remain open and the CBF will be responsible
for the closure," said Shah.
Zaman claimed that the notices at the start of
the new academic year was a planned move. "The CBF has cautioned all the schools
to stop the use of their buildings within 7 days after the issuance of the
notices, stating that the buildings would be confiscated in favor of the CBF if
the directives were not followed. Private schools have invested money and time
to provide quality education to Pakistani children but these same institutions
are shackled down with taxes and notices," said Zaman.
He said that the PSMA
has held a meeting with CBF executives who had relatively more flexible
attitudes regarding the matter and requested the schools to approach the CBF for
registration of their buildings. However, he added that the CBF had sole
discretion to accept or refuse any application.
"It is ridiculous that
schools that were established 20 years ago, are being issued notices now. The
CBF has enforced By-Laws 119 of 2008 without taking the stakeholders into
confidence, although, it is already generating huge revenue in taxes," said
The PSMA chairman said that all private schools of the city were
directly under the authority of the Sindh Education Ministry and are registered
with Board of Secondary Education, while many other boards are also conducting
exams in the Gulistan-e-Jauhar area. Zaman claimed that the Sindh Education
Ministry had no objections over the condition of the school buildings or whether
they were residential or commercial.
There are approximately 600 private
schools in Gulistan-e-Jauhar alone, with more than 65,000 students. The number
of private schools within the jurisdiction of CBF is more than 300 and the CBF
collects Rs 7,000 per year from each school, which adds up to Rs 21,00,000. The
rate of taxes levied by the CBF is higher than rates approved by the City
District Government Karachi. Daily Times
