Gujarat State Private School Fee Relief Official Circular

Gujarat State Private School Fee Relief Official Circular

The Gujarat government has given great relief to students studying in private schools. A 25 per cent rebate in school fees was announced after a cabinet meeting chaired by Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani. The Gujarat government on Wednesday asked all private schools to reduce their annual school fees by 25 per cent to provide relief to parents of school-going children. Education Minister Bhupendrasinh Chudasama said school owners have agreed to charge 25 per cent less fees from students during the current academic year. This decision applies to all schools accredited by various boards, including the CBSE and the International Board. Schools have also been instructed not to charge any other fees under co-circular activities.

The decision has been taken after several meetings of private schools and parents' association. Also, schools will not increase fees for this academic session. Those who have already paid the full fee will receive the amount of compensation as per this decision. However, the fee relief comes on the condition that the parents have to pay 50 per cent fee by October 31 to get this relief.

In fact, the order of the Gujarat High Court dated September 18 has left it up to the state government to decide and remind between the Covid-19 epidemic on the issue of school fee waiver and scarcity. The state government had to take a balanced decision in the interest of all. Earlier in August, the High Court quashed a government order banning the deposit of tuition fees until private schools reopened.

According to Bhupendrasinh, "The state government held a meeting with the school administrators and parents following the guidelines and decision of the Gujarat High Court. Based on the deliberations of these meetings, school administrators and parents have agreed with the state government for a 25 per cent fee waiver. However, some parents also opposed the central government's decision to waive the fee by 25 per cent as they were demanding a 50 per cent reduction in duty. He said schools were not functioning physically due to the epidemic, they could not collect fees related to transport, library, computer and sports activities. Earlier, school owners were willing to cut fees by just 10 per cent, while the government was pushing for a 25 per cent reduction.

Please note that this decision was taken by Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), Certificate of Secondary Education of India (ICSE), ISC (Certificate of Indian Schools), International Level Secondary (IB), International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE), University of Cambridge Khan. Applies to schools.

Disposing of the petition seeking the court's intervention on the fee issue, the High Court said the government could take "independent decision" under the Disaster Management Act and the Epidemic Diseases Act, which came into force under CIVID-19. An outbreak of an epidemic.

In August Gust, the High Court overturned a government order banning private schools from charging tuition fees until they were reopened.



Previously, school owners were willing to accept only a 10 percent fee reduction, while the government insisted on a 25 percent reduction. Now, we have decided to implement a 25 percent fee reduction and we are glad that the schools have now agreed to it. '

Two weeks ago, the Gujarat High Court refused to intervene in the matter and asked the government to take a decision on reducing school fees.




The court asked the government to sit down with representatives of private schools and find a amicable settlement on the issue of fees.

But the government approached the High Court earlier this month and said no solution was found as the Apex School Association was not ready to reduce tuition fees by 25 percent as proposed by the state, so the court should issue necessary directions.
