Private schools in the national capital can only charge tuition fee on a monthly basis from the parents and also cannot hike fee without the government’s nod, Delhi Education Minister Manish Sisodia said on Friday. Sisodia, also the Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi, said the schools cannot charge any other fees, like annual fee or transportation fee, from the parents in wake of the pandemic coronavirus. Speaking to the media through a digital press conference, Sisodia said there were reports of unfair fee hike, demand of quarterly payment and reduced or non-payment of salaries by some private schools. He announced that private schools are allowed to charge only tuition fee on monthly basis from their students. “We are receiving complaints from many parents that private schools have increased their fees. And those students who are failing to pay the fees on time are being dropped from the online classes. I would request the private schools to not come down to this level,” said Sisodia. (IANS)
