The Committees have been formed on the recommendations of the Justice Duggal Committee.

The committee will comprise Deputy Director Education of the district as chairperson, education officer of the Zone as a member and a Chartered Accountant nominated by Director of Education as a member.

Key Highlights
• The Directorate of Education (DoE) of the state said that parents can now complain to committee if they have an issue with the fees charged by private schools.

• The complaint can be registered with the committee of the respective districts in the prescribed format along with a processing fee of Rs 100.

• The committees will be required to take action on the complaints within 90 days.

Background
The committees have been formed in the backdrop of recent complaints by parents regarding the arbitrary fee hikes by private schools, which cited the implementation of the Seventh Pay Commission as a reason for fee hike.

Earlier, the Directorate of Education had also written to schools asking them to refrain from any unjustified hike in school fees in the name of implementation of the Seventh Pay Commission recommendations.
