HC overturns order on private school fees

Fees, Private schools


The Times of India

NEW DELHI: In a relief to schools, Delhi high court on Thursday reversed its earlier order which had held that private unaided schools cannot take fees on a quarterly basis.

A bench of acting chief justice B D Ahmed and justice V Kameswar Rao sent the matter back to a single judge, asking him to hear it afresh, since certain points were not considered by him earlier. The HC’s order came on an appeal filed by the Action Committee of Unaided Recognized Private Schools which had challenged the order passed by the single judge in April last year.

The school association argued before the division bench that the power under Delhi School Education Act 1973, which allows the government administration to make rules with respect to fees and other charges, is confined to aided institutions and not unaided ones.
