CENTRAL LAW ON FEE IN UNAIDED PRIVATE SCHOOLS
Yesterday, I got a telephone call from the HRD Ministry, Government of India and was informed that the Ministry is examining my representation whereby I had requested the Union HRD Minister to enact a central legislation regulating fee in unaided private schools all over the country which should also contain a provision for inducting at least 50% parents' representative on the Managing Committee of the school. It was pointed out in the representation that unless adequate number of parents is not given place in the Managing Committee of an unaided private school, commercialization of education in these private schools cannot be checked. The attention of the Hon'ble Minister was also drawn to the observations of the Hon'ble Delhi High Court made in the judgment dated 12.08.2011 in W.P.(C) 7777/2009 to the effect that the Central Government should frame National Policy on Fee.
