Gujarat HC sets aside govt. order for tuition fees of private schools

Certain clauses of a govt order that restrained private, unaided schools from collecting tuition fees until they reopened have been set aside by the Gujarat High Court according to a source.

Chief Justice Vikram Nath and Justice JB Pardiwala in a division bench heard the petition filed by an association of unaided schools and set aside the following clauses:

1. Clause stating that “no fees to be charged by any unaided schools either towards the tuition fees or in relation to any optional activity as long as online classes are being held.”

2. Clause stating that “the expenditure incurred in the salary of teaching and non teaching staff of the Schools to be considered while determining the fees for the next year.”

3. Clause stating that “fees already paid, to be adjusted against the fees which would become payable upon physical opening of schools.”

The court also directed the federation and the State Government to think and resolve all the issues peacefully after which a fresh Government Resolution in this respect is to be issued by the State government.
