Decision Maker Response

Govind Singh Dotasra’s response

May 15, 2020 — Dear citizens,

I have taken note of this petition by Smt Amarpreet Kaur and other concerned parents and citizens, asking the Government of Rajasthan to intervene on the matter of fee hikes by private schools. Similar to this petition, there were many other complaints from parents about undue fee hikes by private schools that we received.

I wish to assure Amanpreet and all the supporters of her petition that the Government of Rajasthan has given strict orders to all schools to abide by the following directives:

1. All schools to defer fees for the next 3 months, and
2. No school to bar any student from online education, or disenroll any student in the case of failure to pay fee.

The government will take strict action against the school if they do not adhere to govt orders. Furthermore, a high level committee has been formed to look into all such cases including fee hike.
If you are facing any such issue, please raise the concern with us, we will certainly look into the issue.

We are going through unprecedented times and the Government of Rajasthan has created a citizen focussed pandemic response. We want to ensure that children have access to education and school curriculum without any challenges.

I invite you to stay updated on the work we are doing by following us on Twitter @GovindDotasra

Thank you,
Govind Singh Dotasra
Minister for Education (Independent Charge), Tourism & Devsthan
Government of Rajasthan
