Chennai: The Madras High Court will take up for final hearing on November 29, a batch of petitions challenging the "individual fee structure" fixed by a state-appointed committee for all private unaided schools in Tamil Nadu.

Yesterday, Justice K B K Vasuki had stayed the operation of the new fees structure with immediate effect.

When the matter came up today, state Additional Advocate General P Wilson submitted that the interim stay had created confusion in the minds of parents.

Seeking an early hearing of the petition, he contended that the state government would file its counter and that the petitioners should also file a reply.

When he wanted to know what would be the position in the event of the petitions being dismissed, the Judge pointed out that interim orders in all writ petitions were subject to the outcome of the main petition.

If both sides agreed, there would be no difficulty in fixing a date for hearing the petition, the Judge said and fixed November 29 as the date.
