Referring to the Supreme Court's decision that Private School must reduce fees for online-only classes, I would like to highlight below things;

The school have saved colossal amount of money during the online classes towards electricity charges, water charges, stationery charges and other miscellaneous charges which are required for physical running of the school.

Demanding fees even in respect of overheads on such activities would be nothing short of indulging in profiteering and commercialization. It is a well-known fact and judicial notice can also be taken that due to complete lockdown, schools were not allowed to open for substantially long period. Resultantly, the school management must have saved overheads and recurring cost on various items such as petrol/diesel, electricity, maintenance cost, water charges, stationery charges, etc.

Without insisting for mathematical exactitude approach, we would assume that the school management must have saved around 50 per cent of their annual cost and hence the same should be waived.

Materials like stationery, notebooks, planner, kits, etc. which will not be used, the school management is forcing us to purchase, they should only charge for the textbooks.

Last year despite the Pandemic, the school management had collected the entire school fee, pressurizing in different ways, they should refund 50% of that as well.

I urge Orchid International School to look into this and not indulging in profiteering and commercialization education.
