UP govt allows upto 5 per cent hike in private school fees

New Delhi: 

The Uttar Pradesh government has lifted the restrictions on raising fees in the private schools for past academic year due to Coronavirus pandemic. It has allowed schools to raise academic fee up to 5 percent.   

Additional Chief Secretary (secondary education) Aradhna Shukla informed about the fee hike through the official letter that has been sent to the District Inspectors of Schools (DIoSes) along with other secondary education department officials for implementation.

This comes after the order of Yogi Adityanath-led UP government banning private schools to increase fees was challenged in Allahabad High Court. After which, the Lucknow bench of the court asked the state government to rethink its decision as the schools have reopened after being shut down for 2 years. 

In the latest, the Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath started a campaign called ‘School Chalo Abhiyan’  in UP’s Shrivasti with the motivation of ensuring 100 per cent enrollments in primary and upper primary schools in the state. 

Shravasti is a district in Uttar Pradesh which has the lowest literacy rate in the state followed by Bahraich, Balrampur, Badaun and Rampur.
