SUBJECTING DISABLED STUDENTS TO PAY MORE SCHOOL FEE IS UNJUST & ILLEGAL
I am told by Ms. Meena Singh, parent of a disabled student studying in Bhatiya Vidya Bhawan, K.G.Road, New Delhi that there are nearly 90 students with disabilities studying in different classed in the school. She has written to me that the school is charging fee from the students with disabilities much more than what is charged from the general students and there is a difference of 38%-39% in school fee.
It is submitted that the school is not entitled to charge fee and other charges from the children with disabilities more than that is charged from the general students. It is totally arbitrary and illegal. If the school would not mend itself, the matter would be taken to the Hon’ble Delhi High Court by us by way of public interest litigation to get justice for the students with disabilities.
