Taking a note of tuition fees that are collected by private schools, the Arvind Kejriwal-led Delhi government has asked all private schools to return the tuition fees of minority students under the ‘Reimbursement of Tuition Fees to the minority students of Classes 1 to 12,’ which is a state-funded scheme. An official order was issued by the Delhi Directorate of Education, Delhi DoE.
The AAP-led Delhi government has asked all the DDEs to ensure that the online verification of the applications for the state-funded scheme is completed for the reimbursement of tuition fees to the minority students of Classes 1 to 12 for the years 2020 -21 and 2021-22.
As per the order issued, the Delhi DoE has asked for the timely completion of the verification process. The official circular from the Delhi government mentions that the act of not doing the verification process on time is allegedly a violation of the Delhi government motto. of “timely payment under the scheme to beneficiary student.”
The official notice mentions that the reimbursement of tuition fees to the minority students based on the state scheme must be done as per the guidelines of the scheme issued by the Delhi government.
Earlier, the Delhi government had allowed limited schools in the national capital to hike their school fees marginally. Delhi deputy chief minister and education minister Manish Sisodia had said that since 2015 their government did not permit the private schools to increase fees and continued till 2020 in wake of COVID.
