Schools can recover only tuition fees for now: MP High Court

On Thursday, 5th November, 2020, the High Court of Madhya Pradesh has directed all unaided private institutions to charge only tuition fees from the students till the Government announces that the Covid-19 pandemic is over. The Court has also directed the schools to not increase tuition fees in this pandemic situation.

High Court of Madhya Pradesh, Jabalpur Bench, after hearing several public interest litigations was of the view that, the salaries of teaching and non-teaching staffs must be given on a timely manner and if there is any urgency to reduce the fees, than in that case the fees must be reduced to a maximum of 20%.

Chief Justice Sanjay Yadav and Justice R.K Dubey heard the plea. The plea also stated for a direction to waive the school fees during this pandemic period. According to the Court this particular direction cannot be given because private unaided education institutions do not receive funds from government, so the private schools are fully depended on the fees of the students.

The Court has also directed that, only tuition fees shall be paid and no other fees such as computer fees, library fees, laboratory fees etc shall be paid.  Due to this pandemic the physical activities of the schools are being shifted to virtual mode, hence the Court directed that the quality of education must not be reduced and also there shall be no increment of fees for the session 2020-21.
