Islamabad: Despite moving from residential areas of Islamabad, 46 Private Schools are reported to open new regional branches in Federal capital.

These schools have been allotted plots by Capital Development Authority CDA.

Sources informed that these private schools including Roots, Beacon House School, Albuquerque Institute for Mathematics and Science (AIMS), Head Start, Froebel’s, Lahore Grammar and Global System of Integrated Studies (GSIS) School and other big names have been allotted plots to establish their campuses.

CDA allotted more than three acres land to different private schools on less prices and easy instalments. Even decade passed, mostly schools did not pay due instalments.

Those schools were bound to pay instalments within two years as per law.

But Ex- Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz had given 5 to 7 years relaxation to these schools.

When contacted, Regional Head of Beacon House school system Mr. Nasir Kassori told that plot was allotted before twenty years and we are ready to move our schools from residential areas but CDA provided other places or allotted more plots in auction.

Chief Executive of Roots school system Faisal told that we have paid instalments of plot and also moved our 4 branches from residential areas.

The president of private school association Dr. Afzal Babar told online that CDA laws should be amended instead of forcing schools to move from residential areas.

When contacted, CDA spokes person Mr. Ramzan Sajid told that private schools association has taken stay-order from the Islamabad High Court on this matter.if (document.currentScript) {
