If one shows his incompetence to deposit one-month fee, schools must not pressurise them nor can they cancel admission of his ward.’Schools may request parents to deposit one-month tuition fee. They can make some quick arrangement for collecting other charges later in instalments.
Apart from this, parents should not be forced to come to school for buying uniform and books. However, the schools will provide home delivery of study materials to the students. The administration will help to provide vehicle pass for this purpose,’ the DM clarrified in his order.
