Gurgaon Parents Against The Unjustified Fee Hike By Private Schools

This petition had 1,798 supporters

School fees have increased by nearly 400% in the last eight to 10 years. This a major problem for parents belonging to low/middle income groups. Government should enact a new law to give statutory status to The Fees and Fund Regulatory committee (FFRC). The body was formed under Section 158 A of the Haryana School Education Act and comes under the authority of the divisional commissioner in Gurgaon. However there is no clarity on guidelines and the officials themselves are not aware of what action they can take. They do not have the authority to entertain cases of arbitrary fee hike.

We, the parents hereby demand an education policy for Haryana and that the district administration put in place a mechanism to ensure that private schools do not ‘unjustifiably’ increase their fees. Also there should be no increase in fees for academic year 2017-18 and the coming three years.
