Schools in trouble over fee hike

All public schools in Delhi that have increased fees without a general body meeting of the Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) will have to roll back the hike.
In a circular issued on Wednesday, the Education Department has asked all erring schools to call a general body meeting of the PTA within 30 days, and send a copy of the resolution to the department.
“Many schools have either not called a PTA meeting or called just the executive committee of the PTA, which has limited members and consulted parents favourable to their cause,” said Education Secretary Rina Ray. “Such schools will have to roll back the fee hike till they call a general body meeting,” Ray said.
Many schools such as Ramjas School, Anand Parbat and Army Public School have rolled back the fee hike after being issued show cause notices by the Delhi government.
