Three months after ordering fee rollback by private schools in Delhi, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has sought a compliance report from the education department. Delhi government, through the Directorate of Education, in past had ordered 191 private schools in the national capital to roll back their 'arbitrary fee hike'. The Chief Minister has asked for a two-way certification of the rollback of fees. For each school, the report will have certification by 10 parents and one government nominee on the school management board.
"The department of education has been asked to get back to the Chief Minister's Office and submit a report with details of the schools and the fee hike rollback," said a statement from the Chief Minister's office.
Earlier in May, the Delhi government had asked three private schools to roll back their fee hike for the 2018-19 academic session.
The government also asked these schools to refund the increased fee to parents without delay and warned of action if this was not done.
