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:

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

This is really a welcome news to the parents burdened by the unrealistic fee hike.

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.

i think its applies to only ssc in the state.

PReddy 2017-01-10 15:42:19


It applies to ALL Schools, irrespective of the Board of Affiliation

There were GOs with technical loopholes and hence there were litigations...and also now the issue is also wrt to setting up of DFRC, on similar lines of AFRC that decides fee for Professional colleges. Lets hope for the best!

It is highly unlikely there would be any change on the ground situation, most school at Hyderabad are operated by politicians or close relatives/crony capitalists. Its no wonder that school fees are highest in Hyderabad despite land and cost of living being lowest among metros.
The government has no will power to control this menace at all, they just keep taking some baby steps on paper to keep courts in good humor but its also failure of courts that they don't push for implementation on ground or punish officials for non-implementation of the orders.

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.


PReddy 2017-01-12 16:09:06


True  pinesh, the fees collected in most of the cases is not in commensurate to that of the ACTUAL expenses by the school and the facilities/standards offered. Hope the proposed DFRC, with a statutory backing will address this gap.

chsp 2017-01-12 18:15:12


This is really a welcome news. Appreciate HSPA 's efforts.

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.

Its official now... No Fee Hike for 2018-19

sheh 2018-01-18 15:41:24


But we were told by little Elly jubilee hills branch they hike fee on monthly bases. Sadly just because I m asking them why they are not following head quarters curriculum or teaching method. They want to remove my child from school without any valid reasons. We are not allowed ask questions about fee hikes ,teaching methods and child safety. Struggling with school now.

This type of Autocratic behaviour is not uncommon with Pvt Schools across country. Pls make every communication/correspondence in writing...Even though if there is a written conversation, comprehend it with an email stating, "As discussed with XXX on XXX on the mater XXX  ....."

Any school CANNOT ISSUE TC just because you have questioned Sth the school follows.

Get in touch with HSPA or Bala Hakkula Sangham (Child  Rights Organization) then will guide you.
