Notices to 64 schools for charging excess fee: Gov
New Delhi: The city government Friday told the Delhi High Court that it has started issuing notices to 64 private schools to refund the excess fees charged by them in 2009 without paying salaries to their teaching and non-teaching staff as per the Sixth Pay Commission.
Appearing before the bench headed Justice B D Ahmed, the counsel for the Directorate of Education, Delhi government, told the court that the department has started issuing notices following the judicial panel`s suggestions last month.
A three-member committee headed by former Rajasthan High Court Chief Justice Anil Dev Singh, set up last year, had examined the financial records of 200 schools on a random basis out of total 1172 schools and submitted its first interim report before the court.
The committee said in its report that 64 schools "unjustly" increased fees and recommended that all of them refund the same with 9 percent interest to the parents.
