Costly admission

Published on

Sir: Every year in the admission season, all private universities open their admissionsand ask for a hefty amount from students for admission forms and prospectus. These so-called hubs of education are fleecing students and their parents. People have nowhere to turn to, as universities can do whatever they want. Admissions have become a pay-day for private educational institutions and no check and balance is in place to stop this practice. As education is a right of every individual, just applying to a university is a costly affair for people. The poor in our society cannot even think about applying to a private institution. The government should, at least, make an effort and fix a reasonable amount, so that the poor can also have the opportunity to get education. —Usman Saleem, Lahore
