Rajasthan High Court decides on school fees, only 70% payment in 3 installments
This order of the High Court has come on the appeal of private schools challenging the decision of Rajasthan Government. The order was given on three petitions through which about 200 schools challenged the decision of the Rajasthan government. The Rajasthan government had asked the parents not to get fees from the schools during the bandh during the corona.
Through these three petitions, the private schools had challenged the order of the state government for the suspension of fees on 9 April and 7 July. Due to these orders of the state government, private schools were unable to collect fees.
In fact, due to the Corona crisis, the Rajasthan government had prohibited the collection of fees till the opening of private schools. The Rajasthan government had decided to postpone the fees charged by private schools till the schools reopen.
In view of the corona virus epidemic, the state government had on April 9 banned the advance fees by private schools of the state for three months till June 30. The government extended this period until the school reopened on 9 July. In the Corona era, Education Minister Govind Singh Dotasara ordered private schools to postpone three months of school fees till 30 June. This order was later extended until the school opened.
