Educational Institutions on lowering their fees in the pandemic

-

The Supreme Court stated that educational institutions should be alert to the difficulties that people are experiencing as a result of the pandemic and take measures to provide support to students and their parents during this difficult period.

The Supreme Court ruled on Monday that educational institutions must lower fees because their operating expenses have decreased as a result of numerous on-campus facilities remaining closed. It stated that demanding payment for services not given to students amounted to profiteering, which schools must prevent.

While hearing a group of appeals from private unaided schools in Rajasthan challenging the state government’s order that they forego 30% of tuition fees during the pandemic, the court found that while there is no law requiring the state government to issue such an order, the schools were required to reduce their fees. The bench said the fees should have been re-evaluated by the regulatory authority but instead opted to pass an order for a minimum 15% reduction to resolve the problem totally.

The Supreme Court also ruled that a law can be enacted to limit fees in private unaided schools in order to prevent profiteering by management and that parents can be included in the fee-setting process.
