Jaipur: The ongoing row over arbitrarily increase in fee proved costly for two private schools in Jaipur. The Rajasthan education department canceled their NOC. It can cause the CBSE to withdraw their affiliation, sources said. Both the schools are situated in Jaipur.
The education directorate withdrew the NOC for violation of the Rajasthan Schools (Regulation of Fee) Act. One of these schools is situated in Pratap Nagar, while the other at KC Munshi Marg.
The education department had served a show cause notice when the parents of the children accused these schools of arbitrarily increasing fee.
The officials from the administration of these schools and lawyers visited the education directorate in Bikaner and submitted some documents in defense of their decision to increase the fee. The education department officers were however not satisfied with the response and decided to withdraw the NOCs.
“We will inform the CBSE about our decision to withdraw the NOC. It can jeopardize the affiliation of these schools with CBSE. If the schools ensure compliance with the law, we will reconsider our decision,” said a senior education department officer.
