TIRUCHI: The district administration has instructed the Kamala Niketan School to confine its fee collection to the extent fixed by the Justice Govindarajan Committee.
At a meeting attended by school education department officials, representatives of the school management and parents on Wednesday, the Revenue Divisional Officer S. Sangeetha also instructed the school to refund the excess fee and caution deposit of Rs.10,000 it had already collected from the parents . The school was warned against according differential treatment to parents and students. Official sources said that the school authorities had apologised for not abiding by the earlier instructions given to them by the officials of revenue and education departments to return the excess fee and refrain from collecting caution deposit.
Parents exuded confidence that the school would fall in line this time since the management has been told strictly that the school education department will not hesitate to approach the Central Board of Secondary Education with a recommendation to cancel its recognition in case it fails to comply with the instructions.
Officials also advised parents to approach the departments concerned to get their grievances answered rather than organising protest meetings so that law and order situations could be prevented. Parents have heaved a sigh of relief after the State Government came out with an assurance that it will act on complaints of fee collection beyond the limit prescribed by the Private Schools Fee Determination Committee. “There were apprehensions that the new Government may not interfere with the fee issue. Clarity in its stand is a welcome development,” said a parent. On their part, most of the schools who have appealed to the K. Raviraja Pandian Committee nurse hope for a considerable revision in the fee structure.
