Parents approach Delhi High Court against school fee hikeMarch 20th, 2009 - 9:08 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, March 20 (IANS) A group of parents Friday approached the Delhi High Court against the official notification on school fee hikes, recommended by the S.C. Bansal Committee which the Delhi government set up last year.
The Delhi Abhibhavak Mahasangh, aided by NGO Social Jurist, has challenged the Directorate of Education’s (DoE) notification on the grounds that it violates the orders of the high court and the Supreme Court that the accounts of each school be examined before they are allowed to raise the fee.
The schools have been demanding up to 50 per cent tuition fee hike in order to implement the Sixth Pay Commission’s recommendations on teachers’ salaries and arrears. The DoE has created five slabs on the basis of the existing tuition fee in schools, allowing them a maximum fee hike of Rs. 500.
The case is expected to be heard Wednesday next week.
