Delhi CM asks private schools not to hike fee sans PTA nod

Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit on Tuesday told private schools in Delhi not to hike fees without approval of the Parent Teacher Associations as directed by the state education department.



New Delhi: Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit on Tuesday told private schools in Delhi not to hike fees without approval of the Parent Teacher Associations as directed by the
state education department.

Making it clear that government would not reverse its position on the issue, she told a delegation of the private schools that it may consider revising the guideline for the
academic session 2011-12, sources said.

Education Minister Arvinder Singh Lovely, who was also present in the meeting, said schools have been told to follow the circular issued by his department on April one in which it was stated that no private school will be allowed to hike fees without the approval of the Association.

"If they do not follow the order then appropriate action will follow," he said.
In the meeting, principals of several private schools requested Dikshit to allow them to hike the fee arguing that they were facing financial constraints following
implementation of recommendations of the Sixth Pay Commission for the
teachers.

Some private schools have already affected 15 to 20 per cent hike in fees and asked parents to pay the increased amount.
