As per official details, the Rawalpindi District Registration Authority (DRA) has initiated proceedings to establish more than 800 new private schools in Rawalpindi. The District Education Officer (DEO) has instructed the owners of schools to begin the enrolment process for due diligence. This decision was made at a DRA meeting with Deputy Commissioner, Anwar Ul Haq, in the chair. During discussion, the DC directed the participants of the meeting to issue registration certificates to the concerned institutes whose applications had been pending for the decade.
Under the DRA, the new project is expected to enroll a large number of children and help achieve the government’s target of admissions in the upcoming academic calendars. It will also resolve the worry of unemployment and will be supportive for families.
