New Delhi: The city government today informed
the Delhi High Court that it will set up within a week a panel headed by a former justice to examine the hikes in tuition fees by various unaided private schools and to audit their accounts.

Appearing for the Delhi government`s Directorate of
Education (DoE), counsel Avnish Ahlawat informed the bench of
justices A K Sikri and Siddharth Mridul that the Directorate
would issue a notification within a week to set up the panel.
The court was hearing an application by Delhi Abhibhavak
Mahasangh seeking a direction to the government to "forthwith
issue a notification for constituting the Anil Dev Singh Committee" as per the court`s earlier order.
Earlier, the same bench on August 12, had ordered to set up a three-member committee headed by Justice Singh to scrutinise the accounts of unaided private schools here.

It had also said the committee will also determine the
validity of the government`s 2009 notification allowing
schools to hike tuition fees.
Ashok Agarwal, counsel for Delhi Abhibhavak Mahasangh,
had moved the application for constitution of the committee,
aggrieved by the government`s "inaction" in forming the panel.
