SUKKUR: The Sindh High Court (SHC) has barred educational boards from collecting examination and certificate fees from matriculation and intermediate students across the province, ARY News reported.

The SHC Sukkur bench comprising Justice Iqbal Kalhoro and Justice Arbab Ali dismissed the review plea filed by the educational boards. The counsel representing the educational boards requested the court to review its order that restricted them from collecting fees.

The SHC upheld its verdict for exempting the matriculation and intermediate students from the examination and certificate awarding fee.

A report submitted to the court read that in 2017, the Sindh government announced free education to the intermediate level across the province. It added that the educational boards are given funds for the examinations as well as for awarding certificates to the students.

The Assistant Advocate General assured the court that the provincial government would release the required funds to the boards.
