Schools have been closed for 6 months and online education is being provided due to the Corona epidemic, but private schools are currently not in a position to pay fees as the lockdown has hit parents' financial income.  Private school administrators are not ready to give fee relief.  A hearing in this regard was held in the Gujarat High Court today.  During the hearing, the High Court said that the state government should decide on the fees, the government has the power.

 The High Court said, why do you ask us to be mediators?
 The High Court also found out why the government did not take a decision on its own and wanted us to mediate.  Why the High Court should be the mediator and the government should decide for itself and implement it.  With these findings, the High Court disposed of the government's application for mediation.  The High Court also left the final decision on fee reduction to the government.

 We will give relief after investigating the case of parents, 25 percent fee waiver decision not approved: School administrators
 "The government has applied to the High Court for directions as the school administrators do not believe in our decision to waive the 25 per cent fee," said Vishal Dave, counsel for the parents.  On the other hand, the school administrators submitted that this application of the government is not maintainable. We will give relief after investigating the case of the guardian.  We do not approve a 25 percent fee waiver decision.

 The government has powers under the Epidemic Act and the Disaster Management Act: Guardian Advocate
 Advocate Vishal Dave further said that when the representation was made on behalf of the Board of Governors, the decision to reduce the fee by 25 per cent was practical and should be implemented.  The government has powers under the Epidemic Act and the Disaster Management Act.

 Administrators are willing to waive the fee increase of 5 to 12 percent approved by the FRC
 Earlier, the Gujarat government had filed an application in the High Court against the arbitrariness of school administrators in collecting fees.  In response to the petition, the school administrators had filed an affidavit in the High Court a week ago.  The affidavit states that the administrators are willing to waive the 5 to 12 per cent fee increase approved by the FRC for schools by keeping the student fees unchanged.

 School administrators are unwilling to waive fees
 In the two meetings held by the government with the administrators, they were not willing to bow down at all, the government had submitted in court.  The government, in its application to the High Court, had submitted that a meeting has been held twice with the administrators to find a way out of the fee matter.  The government had offered to waive 25 per cent of the students ’fees, which the administrators refused.  Administrators are unwilling to waive fees.
