- Important instructions of the government for private schools of Delhi
- Order for deduction of 15% from fees taken in 2020-21 session
- The government said, if more fees have been taken then it will have to be returned
The Delhi government has given relief to the parents facing financial crisis during the Corona period. The Kejriwal government has ordered private schools to cut the fees charged by 15 per cent in the academic year 2020-21. Not only this, schools have been instructed that if parents have been charged more fees than this, then the schools will have to return those fees or adjust in further fees.
15 percent deduction will be like this
For example, if the school’s monthly fee for the financial year 2020-21 has been Rs 3000, the school will charge only Rs 2550 from the parents after deducting it by 15%.
Deputy Chief Minister said – big relief
Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia has said that during the Corona period, when all the parents are facing financial crisis, a 15 percent reduction in fees will be a big relief for them. The school management will not stop the students from participating in any activities of the school on the ground of non-payment of the outstanding fees due to financial constraints of the parents.
The order has been given by the High Court to cut the fees of private schools by 15 percent to prevent profiteering and commercialization in the time of Corona. This order of the Delhi government is for all those 460 private schools, which had appealed in the High Court. Apart from these 460 schools, all other schools in Delhi will follow the old instructions issued by the Delhi government regarding fees.
