The minister said they have the authority to take action against private schools if they do not abide by orders from Sindh High Court, which barred increase of fees by more than 5% in a recent order.

A three-judge larger bench of the SHC comprising Justice Aqeel Ahmed Abbasi, Justice Muhammad Ali Mazhar and Justice Ashraf Jehan had announced the verdict in an earlier reserved judgment on pleas filed by parents regarding the increase in school fee.
