Sir: My friend, who belongs to the lower class, has passed the entry test for a medical university. However, he is very anxious about the institutional admission and tuition fees he has to pay, as the universities of Pakistan like many other countries’ have increased their admission and tuition fees to generate resources.
He must have at least Rs 50,000 to get started with his higher studies. One may argue how a poor family, which is already enduring for life, craving for sugar, crying for clothes and dying of dengue, can manage such a huge amount to educate their children. Financial advisors and economists working for the government are of the view that they can deal with the economy deficit by cutting the funds of less important facilities, and according to them education is one of the less important facilities.
