Mumbai parents demand school fee reduction and waiver – Times of India

MUMBAI: Parents from schools across the Mumbai Metropolitan Region on Wednesday gathered at the Azad Maidan demanding 50% reduction in tuition fee, a 100% waiver of term fees collected twice a year and ensuring that access to online classes continues even in case of non-payment. The parents plan to continue their protest until the government meets their demands.

Organised by NGO Forum for Fairness in Education, a parents’ association in the city, the protest saw participation of parents from Mumbai, Thane and Navi Mumbai. Eleven other parents’ groups from the city have pledged their support to the protest. Most of these groups have held protests at the school level of the past 10 months.

“We plan to continue our protest here (Azad Maidan) until the government takes a decision and initiates stern action against the schools that have flouted norms,” said Anubha Sahai, member of the India Wide Parents Association.

The education department had on May 8 issued a circular asking schools not to hike fees for the ongoing academic year, provide easy payment options and not force parents to pay the fees. However, the circular was challenged in the Bombay High Court and eventually stayed.
