Atta Shad Degree College, situated in Turbat, accommodates between 1,000 to 2,000 students from various regions of Balochistan. Last year, the fee was Rs. 1,800, which the government has raised to Rs. 3,050. The poor students, who cannot afford to pay the tuition fee, are forced to work in shops.  

More than 350 students have left the institute because of financial reasons. Despite it being a major issue, the government is silent. I appeal to the government to decrease the fee of Atta Shad Degree College and show some kind of relief towards the students who cannot afford education. Lack of financial resources should not prevent students from reaching their potential.
