Punjab government pleas stay on High Court’s school fee verdict

  • | Saturday | 11th July, 2020

The state government, in a Letter Patents Appeal (LPA), has challenged the ruling of June 30, which allowed private schools to collect fees irrespective of whether or not they were offering online classes.

“In the interest of justice and fair play,” the Punjab government in its appeal has sought a stay on the recent Punjab and Haryana High Court verdict in a matter relating to the payment of school fees.

The state government, in a Letter Patents Appeal (LPA), has challenged the ruling of June 30, which allowed private schools to collect fees irrespective of whether or not they were offering online classes.

The government earlier had allowed only those schools to collect tuition fees which were conducting online classes. While all the schools had been also asked to defer the last date for depositing admission fees, the government had prohibited the schools from taking other charges like transport, building expenses during the period of closure. The orders were challenged before the High Court by various school management, including Independent Schools Association and Punjab Schools Welfare Association. While the HC order granted relief to the schools, it had caused major heartburn among the parents of school-going children.
