Prabha Pandey started this petition to MHRD (Education Minister of India) and

Seeking Immediate Indulgence and Attention towards the Wrong Conduct of Private Schools by Removing Wards from School Group and Debarring them from Online Education and Examination, etc.

I am a resident of the Faridabad. In the midst of Corona Virus crisis sailing in the same boat of uncertainties, fear and things unfolding every day with new COVID variants coming frequently and forcing the Central/State Governments to implement strict/rules and lockdown. Economic slump is evident due to present conditions created by COVID-19 all over the world.

I am common citizen of India, and my child goes to a school in Faridabad. Sitting under lockdown, sustainability and survival is the ongoing thought that we start our day with.

With no information when normalcy will return, when we could head back to our respective work is the question hard to find answer, and here, I receive an intimation from the school regarding the hike in fee. I was baffled that how would I be able to cope up? I am anxious to know about the school fee hike, yearly development charges and transport fee hike that as per the school is to meet the cost demands for the academic year 2021-22.

India on the whole is affected by this uncertain period. When companies have already started pay cuts, lay-offs, leave without pay, several big and small business are impacted, in such a situation it is o.k. for school to charge fee to maintain itself, but hiking the fee is totally unfair and insensitive. School and parents are together in this difficult time, while paying fee will ensure the salary of teaching and non teaching staff and other expenses for schools, NO FEE HIKE and taking only Tuition fee for this time rather than taking any other fee, will ensure that parents will be able to ensure education for their children.

I request you to regulate the schools all over India and direct the state governments to ensure that there is NO HIKE till the normalcy returns and schools do not charge for services during this time which they are not providing (like transport fuel, electricity ,development ,maintenance etc).

We therefore, in view of this global pandemic on behalf of our wards as well once again request your goodself  with utmost care and respect,  seek waiver of above stated heads.

We pray to God and hope that the normalcy resumes and a parent like us may not be constrained to withdraw our wards from the school.
