SCPCR chief directs action against schools demanding fees during lockdown

Friday, 10 April 2020 | PNS | Dehradun

The chairperson of State Commission for Protection of Child Rights (SCPCR) Usha Negi has instructed the Dehradun chief education officer to take action against the schools pressurising the parents of students to submit the school fee during the lockdown.

 On Thursday, Negi received complaints from several parents who called her on the phone stating that some schools are pressurising the parents to deposit the fees of their children.

 According to Negi, if any school asks for fees or pressurizes any guardian to deposit it before the situation gets normal in the State, its recognition can be cancelled. Negi also condemned the actions of those schools that run under the charitable trusts and societies but are still pressurising the parents for fee submission during the crisis. Negi has instructed the chief education officer Asha Rani Painuly to take appropriate actions against the administration of such schools.
