It is the government's duty to protect the interest of parents and ensure that schools remain financially viable, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said today, a day after he ordered action against a school which increased the fees in the name of implementing the 7th pay commission.
"First govt in history which has stopped pvt schools from hiking fee illegitimately n also forced some schools to rfund illegitimate fee hike. It is govt's duty to protect interests of parents while also ensuring that schools remain financially viable (sic)," Kejriwal said in a series of tweets.
The school has been asked to communicate to parents through its website, on notice board and via a circular about the rejection of the increase in the fee structure and pay salaries and allowances to teachers and other staffers from its savings.
