Maharashtra cabinet today decided to slash by 15 per cent for this academic year. A detailed order of this decision will be issued soon, School Minister Varsha Gaikwad told reporters.

This decision is taken on the lines of the Rajasthan government, she said.

Parents' bodies have been demanding some relief from the state government in terms of slashing in view of the COVID-19 pandemic situation.

Schools continue to remain closed in Maharashtra due to the pandemic and amid fear of a likely third wave.

"Schools affiliated to various boards, including the Maharashtra board, have informed the state government earlier that they will abide by rules regarding the slashing of fees. The government order will cover various issues and intricacies to avoid any confusion among the parents and school management," the minister added.
