PARENTS NOT TO PAY HIKED SCHOOL FEE - AIPA


Delhi High Court constituted Justice Anil Dev Singh Committee to determine the justifiability of fee-hiked in 2009 by unaided private schools of Delhi in its two interim reports submitted in the High Court has held that most of the private schools have unjustly and without actually requirement increased fee and other charges and directed refund of the same to the parents with 9% interest thereon. In view of these finding of the Committee, it would be advisable to all the parents to not to pay the hike fee in 2013-14, till a school gets prior approval of the hiked fee from Justice Anil Dev Singh Committee. The parents should note that there is no law permitting the schools to increase the fee every year by 10%. The law is that it can be increased or decreased depending upon the actual requirement of a school. Advocate Ashok Agarwal, National President, All India Parents Association (AIPA) M-09811101923

  3. Hi,

    Need a clarity, Can anyone tell me if it is mandatory for getting a nod from the education board for a private Un-Aided school before increasing the Fees or tution fees. Also if there is a rule stating that only an "X" % of increase is permitted for all class across the school or can they have varied % for them.

    Regards

  6. Hi,
    This is in reference to unauthorized system and methods adapted by schools which are more focused towards earning profits rather providing quality education, environment, values and culture inherits to make children in India compete with world. The education field which started as a Nobel profession and No Profit No Loss Organizations has turned into a fruitful and lucrative business with no rules and regulations applied from government, CBSE and Ministry of Education. My Ward is studying in ASN School, Mayur Vihar Phase 1 and the school as each and every year without consultation from parents increased the school tuition fee to more than 12%, Annual charges to more than 17%, charging for Technology fee as per which Educomp installed in classes are rarely used/ in some classes not even used, Pupil fund charged which is baseless. 2 years back school all of sudden changed the complete dress code of the school for children which were an added cost bearded by parents. School is also spending money on unessential things and the burden is on parents. My Salary also does not get incremented every year and definitely not to the level to which the school increases the fee. School distributes pamphlets’ to kids and forces kids to buy books by emotionally playing around. Post results school force parents to buy book set from school and if someone is not ready he is forced to pay for the set and later on left to fight in order to recover his money. School collaborates with Publishers as they get a huge profit on MRP and applies private and expensive books from different publishers. NCERT books are not provided as school is not earning any profit on these books. The irony is that these private books are rarely used throughout the year and few are not even used. Publishers are instructed not to sell these books in open market before school reopens for the new session due to which parents are automatically forced to buy the complete set from school. In the mane of facilities when school organizes PTM’s parents are not even offered a glass of water as basic need of humanity. It is my sincere request/plead to Government of India/Delhi, Ministry of Education, CBSE Board, Law enforcing authorities to kindly look into authorized demands and practices of various schools across delhi and take strict action against them so that they are operating school for spreading the real values/education for which government grants them land at very low prices. The schools are making huge profits every year which is used in buying more land and opening more institutes, buying luxury cars for themselves etc. I have tried to complaint on DOE websites, Ministry of education websites, to Education Minister however seems no one is ready to take a action against schools and force them to function as a No profit No Loss organizations.
    Expecting a quick and immediate action.
    Thanks and Regards,
