This petition addresses the new health care program introduced by the President of University of Management and Technology, Lahore that requires mandatory payment of Rs 3000 per quarter by every participant. We appreciate the initiative taken by the university but strongly against making it mandatory for every student to pay without his/her consent.

Participation in any health care program should always be given as a choice but in UMT it is being forced upon us to pay, which is not ethical and against the free rights of an individual. 

An additional voucher has been added along with our fee vouchers making it compulsory for us. Our parents are not happy with this act of forceful participation by the university and are not willing to pay. Due to COVID-19, most students are already unable to pay their dues. This additional amount is an unfair burden on them. 

We request you UMT to take notice of this and give students the right to decide whether they want to participate or not rather than making them pay by force.

Moreover, detailed information about the utilization of the insurance card should be provided to all students to ensure they make the most informed decision.
