Parents may face a big setback, private schools in Delhi might increase annual fees

New Delhi:

Private schools running on government land in Delhi can submit proposals for fee hike for the 2022-2023 academic year. They cannot increase fees without the prior approval of the Directorate of Education (DOE). Paving the way for what parents pay for their child’s education after two years.

There are more than 400 such schools in Delhi, while the Directorate of Education has directed to first take permission to increase the fees for the 2022-23 session. In a letter issued by Education Director Himanshu Gupta, it was said that the unaided private school running on government land will have to propose fee hike to the director for any kind of increase in fees. Those schools that do not send proposals will not be allowed to increase fees.

Education director’s team will investigate

During the Corona pandemic, schools were only allowed to charge tuition fees, schools were banned from charging annual fees and development fees. In 2021, schools were allowed to charge annual and development fees with a 15 per cent rebate following a petition by the Delhi High Court. These private schools built on government land will have to apply online between June 12 and 27 for the increase in fees. According to the Director of Education, the proposal given by the schools will be examined by the officer or the team of the Director of Education.

If no proposal is submitted in response to this order, the school will not increase its fees for the academic session 2022-23. The director gave strict instructions that without the acceptance of the proposal regarding increasing the fees for the session 2022-23, action will be taken on the schools found in the complaint of fee hike as per the directions of the High Court, as well as the land given on lease by the DDA will also be cancelled.
