The bench gave the direction on Friday while disposing of the special leave petition (SLP) filed by the Progressive School Association and others.
The top court has also asked the high court to consider the pending petition on the legality of the schools fee Act 2016 and hear the parties
During the hearing, state’s additional advocate general (AAG) Manish Singhvi told the court that the interests of the parents should be protected and the students should be given relief.
Association’s counsel Dinesh Yadav contended that the apex court had on May 3 asked private school operators to give 15% reduction in annual fees to students.
“It was also said that under the 2016 fees Act, school operators can decide on the annual fees of children on the basis of the fees levied during the 2019-20 academic session and give 15% rebate on it. The court had also allowed to pay this fee in six equal instalments from February 8, 2021 to August 5, 2021. It had also said that in case of non-payment of fees, the school operator will neither remove a student’s name nor prevent him from attending online or physical classes, nor withhold his result,” Yadav said.
But even after SC directions, the parents have not paid the school fees within the prescribed period, though private school managements had cut school fees in compliance with the court order, he said.
