Private schools can charge tuition fee only if they have offered daily online classes, rules Punjab and Haryana High Court

The Punjab and Haryana High Court had directed that private schools can only take tuition fees from the students, if they have provided online classes in the period of lock down in every working day to the students. Further the Court has also directed that,  the management of the schools should file a balance sheet for the preceding seven months within two weeks and it also must be verified by a Chartered Accountant.

Previously there was an order passed by the Punjab and Haryana High Court, which stated that the private schools can charge tuition fees from the students, irrespective of whether they were conducting online classes or not. This particular order was afterwards challenged by both the states. 

Justices Rajiv Sharma and Justice Harinder Singh Sidhu were hearing the plea and further directed that, whether permanent or appointed as a contractual basis, the schools must pay the salary to all the faculty members and also non faculty members, which they used to get before the imposition of the lock down. The Court also directed that due to the lock down from 23rd March, 2020, no transportation occurred from the residence of the students to the schools and hence the school also shall not charge the transportation fees till further orders.
