A substantial policy aimed at enhancing the educational environment in the federal capital was passed at the sixth meeting of the CDA board this year, which was presided over by CDA Chairman Noorul Amin Mengal.
The CDA has chosen to rent lands to private schools under the new policy on a 33-year lease.
For the renting procedure, the CDA has established a 100-point formula with 20% of the points going to schools operating out of homes and 25% of the points going to schools with fees between Rs. 5,000 and Rs. 15,000, respectively.
The CDA seeks to prevent private schools from raising tuition by more than 5% annually. A later time will see the completion of the financial model for the policy.
This legislation will aid private schools in their attempts to give kids a high-quality education and is an important step towards improving the educational infrastructure of the capital.
Also agreed at the meeting were a number of other items. Every home in Islamabad will now have a rainwater collection tank and a tiny well for replenishing the groundwater, according to a decision made by the CDA.
The CDA has also given its Sanitation Directorate and Environment Wing authority to levy fines and administer other sanctions for environmental law infractions in the nation’s capital.
