-The financial condition of people has suffered during lockdown and even schools were closed for a long time.
-The online classes have not been of much help to the students, hence 100 percent fees to be charged by the schools is not acceptable.
The interim decision of Supreme Court regarding school fees to be charged for the academic session 2020-21 has aroused a lot of dissatisfaction among the parents. A meeting of Parents Association will be held today in Town Hall at 4 p.m.
The parents are agitated with the SC’s decision and said that the decision is not at all favourable as the financial conditions have suffered a lot during the lockdown period. A meeting will be held today in Town Hall.

The Parents Association is demanding that Fees Act 2016 must be enforced so that neither the schools nor the parents suffer any financial crisis. It was also stated that online classes have not been of help and were barely a make-shift arrangement. The decision of SC has been termed as one-sided and unjust.
Supreme Court on 8th Feb allowed private unaided schools to collect 100 percent tuition fee beginning 5th March 2021 in 6 monthly instalments. However no school can debar any student from attending examinations or be expelled from school over non-payment of fees.
