Subject: Request to reconsider the school fee hike for the Academic year 2020-21

Dear Ma'am,

We really appreciate the steps taken by the school to keep our children safe and using technology to continue the learning for the few ays of thelast academmic year.

This is to bring to your notice many parents have not been paid their salaries for the past few months by their employers and probably will not be paid fully for a few more months in the near future.

Salaries and business incomes have taken a big hit in current economic crisis because of Corona virus situation world over. There is an eminent crisis at hand as some parents have lost their jobs and unfortunately a few more may get the pink slip in weeks to come, esp from the Airline, Real Estate and Hospitality industry 

As per notification dated 7th February 2020, it was communicated to us that Hiranandani Foundation School (ICSE), Powai has decided to hike the fees by approximately 17,000 (~13%) per year for academic year 2020-21 and another hike of similar amount for academic year 2021-22.

We as parents request you to reconsider the decision of hike in fees in line with the Maharashtra government guidelines and if possible actually reduce the fees till the economy gets back in shape. (https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/mumbai/maharashtra-education-department-tells-schools-to-roll-back-fee-hike/articleshow/75641241.cms

To summarize the requests the school management to –
1. Rollback the proposal to hike fees for Academic Year 2020-21 and 2021-22.
2. Provide additional time (60-90 days) to pay the half yearly tuition fee and evaluate the option of taking the quarterly payment.
3. Refund partial amount of unused component of fees of Academic year 2019-20 like Exam Fees, Infrastructure Fees as many expenses were not incurred because of early shutdown of school.
4. Eliminate and/or re-evaluate components like Library Fees (Rs. 10,100/year*), Laboratory Fees (Rs. 10,100/year), Examination Fees (Rs, 24,800/Year*)

We request you to empathize to parents' condition in this difficult time. Looking forward to a positive response from the school management.

Thanks
Parents of Students of HFS
