Decision taken on the basis of committee report
Only tuition fees will be charged from the students when the school opens. Parents have to provide monthly and quarterly payment option for depositing the fees. The state government constituted a committee regarding the amount of fees that private schools should charge due to the closure of the school for the last 8 months. It has been decided on the basis of which it has submitted its report to the government.
If the decision is not right, then it will go to the Supreme Court
On the decision of the state government, the Progressive Association School of Rajasthan said that the decision of the committee is not right. It is discriminatory, if it is implemented then we will go against it to the Supreme Court. How will the schools be able to pay salaries to teachers and staff if fees were cut so much? Teachers teaching children with hard work should also be thought of.
Can charge up to 60% for online studies: Government
Due to the closure of the school, ongoing online classes can be charged. This fee is named Capacity Building Fee. This fee will be 60 per cent of the fees fixed for a class. In addition, the school will also have to complete the syllabus of students who do not study online. Capacity building fees will not be charged in case of not taking online class.
