During the hearing, a division bench of ACJ Munishwar Nath Bhandari and Justice Rajendra Kumar asked the UP Government what steps it has taken to control exorbitant and arbitrary levy of fees by private schools. The State Counsel informed the Bench that a circular was in place asking the schools to levy on tuition fees till physical classes resume, the report added.
“The petitioners allege that private schools in the city are not allowing children to attend online classes. If such an exorbitant fee is not paid, they don’t allow students to sit in the examinations or promote them to the higher classes and in several cases even going to the extent of striking off their names from the school records.”
As per the report, the petitioners further allege that the entire financial burden of 'Online Tuition' has also been put on the parents, however, till date, the state government has also not taken any action for the succour of the distressed parents.
The Bench has now tagged this matter with a similar PIL titled Adarsh Bhushan v. State of UP (PIL 576/2020). Seeing all this, the Allahabad High Court has seeked a response from all these Education boards.
