Namakkal: The Namakkal District Private School Association (NDPSA) has urged the State Government to fix a common upper ceiling for all classes across the state irrespective of the difference in facilities provided by them.
It should be on a par with the government's fixation of upper ceiling for students joining engineering colleges, they said.
The government quota seats in engineering colleges across the state have a ceiling of Rs. 32,500 per year whereas it is Rs. 62,500 for management quota students, a member said.
Stating that the fees fixed by the Justice Raviraja Pandian Committee for the current academic year was too low, the members questioned how fair it was for the committee to fix the fees for an LKG student at Rs. 24,500 at a school in Chennai and Rs. 1,500 for a school in Paramathi-Velur.
Both the schools impart the same quality of education and we too should have the upper ceiling, says NDPSA's honorary president N.P. Palanisamy.
Mr. Palanisamy, who took part in the association's meeting on Sunday, said that the members have resolved to file individual petitions in the High Court and submit memorandum to the Chief Minister to find an amicable solution.
