The Govt is aggressively working on HSPA's recommendation to setup and notify the District Fee Regulatory Committee (DFRC) for regulating the school fee in private schools well before starting of new academic year 2017-18.
Hon'ble Dy. CM & Minister of Education has said on 05-Jan-17 on the floor of the State Legislative Council that A NEW Government Order (G.O.) setting up Regulatory Committees for controlling School Fees will be brought out soon. Pls check the link: https://youtu.be/IhSaTLnBvds
Hyderabad School Parents Association delegation met the Special Chief Secretary Ranjeev R. Acharya on Friday 06-January-2017 to explain their point of view and the recommendations submitted by them. Lets keep our fingers crossed and hope for the best to save lakhs of rupees of parents parents hard earned money in future from these greedy schools who are running like a hefty profit making business.
Pls see today's article in Hindu http://www.thehindu.com/news/cities/Hyderabad/G.O.-on-regulating-school-fee-likely-in-a-month/articl...
Good news on paper, but practically these kinds of actions were taken many times in past but we all can see the practical implementation and strictness of govt in Education field. Many such committees might have been formed with no legitimate action against money sucking schools.
This will never happen since 90% of schools are managed or owned by politicians and builders who are sitting directly or indirectly influence such committees. They run schools as source of income, not imparting good education.
We just need to concentrate more on trust based schools where fees are reasonable.
Even after making many such regulations, still schools openly ask for donation.
Sentia is asking for Rs. 40k CASH DONATION WITH NO RECEIPT for 2017 admissions, few more other schools are also there. Some schools don't ask for donation directly, but add donation amount in their Admission fees itself to be paid every year for the parent.
Just imagine, in 2017 with demonetization, people struggling to arrange cash for daily needs, they asking for admission donation in CASH.
Education business (as schools) flourishing widely is year-by-year with 10+ new schools opening every year.
Truly said singhvivek1973.
The fees are equal to Delhi-NCR or Mumbai where property prices are high, where 1 lakh+ fees is justified, but not in Hyderabad.
This FIR complaint was also covered by Times Of India newspaper, Hyderabad edition 2 days back.
But generally in such cases, schools find another alternate easily as they know all loopholes.
The schools never mention donation or admission fees on any pamphlet or any written communication given to parents, this is mostly just verbal or orally communicated to parents.
Secondly, they reject such students/parents who remind them of govt rules by arguing with them during admission counseling or those who go against the school and object. So most of parents prefer to keep their mouth shut for benefit of their child and readily and sadly accept all harassments done by school management.
