MPO revocation if extra fees taken from students

The monthly pay order (MPO) scheme can be canceled if any educational institution takes additional fees for admission and tuition from students and if the allegations are serious then the teachers of the institution will be dismissed — the Ministry of Education is formulating such a new policy.
On Wednesday, the Ministry of Education discussed the issue after adding a number of new educational institutions under the MPO scheme.
According to a source in the Ministry of Education, many MPO-affiliated institutions take additional money during student admission. The money is also taken as tuition fees. So, the action will be taken against those institutions which will take more money from the students even after getting the MPO scheme benefits.
The action will be taken against the management committee of the institutions that take extra money. If necessary, the MPO of the accused institution will be terminated, said the ministry sources.
Regarding this, Md Sohrab Hossain, senior secretary of the Secondary and Higher Education Department of the Ministry of Education, said that the educational institutions that have been under the MPO scheme — they will not be able to collect any additional fees. The ministry is being strict about this.
“Thy must tell us in advance how many students will be admitted to the approved educational institutions. If more students are admitted, action will be taken against those institutions. If necessary, their approval will be revoked,” he said.
Meanwhile, several reputed educational institutions in the capital have been accused of collecting extra fees for student admission. Apart from these, there are allegations of irregularities and corruption. However, this image is ‘alarming’ outside Dhaka, said some concerned educational media.
The Ministry of Education will monitor and surveillance these institutes from 2021. These decisions were made at a monthly coordination meeting of the ministry.
An official of the Ministry of Secondary and Higher Education said that the list of educational institutions that had been accused of irregularities in the past year has also been prepared. There are also plans to take action on this list in the next academic year.
Those who are affiliated with educational institutions should not think of themselves as businessmen. Such thinking is detrimental for the country, said Education Minister Dr. Dipu Moni. “Students need to know their abilities and introduce them to education equally. We will take action against those educational institutions that consider education as a business.”
Noted that Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Wednesday announced the MPOs scheme of 2730 educational institutions. Of these, the number of schools and colleges is 1651, madrasa 557 and 522 are technical education institutes.
