The Rajasthan High Court has ruled in the private school fee dispute case on Friday. A division bench of Chief Justice Indrajit Mahanti said that private schools will be able to collect fees only as per the recommendations implemented by the state government on October 28 last. Under this, private schools in which online education is being conducted, they will be able to take only 70% of tuition fees as fees.
The High Court pronounced this decision on the appeal of the state government and others. There were about two dozen parties in the case. The hearing, in this case, ended on December 16. The court reserved the sentence, which was pronounced today.
It is known that, by order of the Supreme Court, the state government established a committee to determine the fees. The committee gave its report to the government on 28 October. It said that schools that are teaching online in Corona Pandemic can charge 70% of tuition fees. At the same time, after the school opens, the fees of the course decided by the concerned board will be taken. This includes CBSE and Rajasthan Board of Secondary Education. The government had implemented it considering the committee’s recommendation. But private schools and parents refused to accept this recommendation.
