New Delhi: Another petition challenging
the recent hike of tuition and development fees by two schools
run by the IAF Educational Society has been filed by the
parents` association before the Delhi High Court.

Filing a petition through counsel Ashok Aggarwal, the
Delhi Abhibhavak Mahasangh(parents` body) alleged the
schools--Airforce Nursery School and Airforce Junior School
run by Indian Air Force Benevolent Cultural and Educational
Society, have failed to comply with the High Court`s May 28
directions before hiking the fee.

The parents` body said that as per the High Court`s
interim order, the schools were asked to file an affidavit in
the court stating that if the court`s final order goes in
favour of parents, then the schools would return the excess
amount which they have charged from the students.

Without complying with the order, the Airforce Nursery
school has issued the fee slip in the first week of July 2009
increasing tuition fees from Rs 475 to 1000 per month and
Airforce Junior School has increased the fee from Rs 435 to
1100 per month, the petitioner stated.

"As per the interim order of the court, the hike could
not be raised beyond Rs 575 per month and Rs 535 per month
respectively," the petitioner added.

The High Court will hear the petition tomorrow.
