Court issues notice to DPS over fee hike
Srinagar, Sept 10: A court Thursday issued notice to the Delhi Public School on the petition filed by the parents of the students studying in the school against the increase in fee by 30 percent.
The court has asked the school to file objections in the case within a week.The case came up for hearing in the court of principal district and sessions judge, Hasnain Masoodi, after parents of students had filed a joint petition through advocate Manzoor Ahmad Dar and challenged the school order.
He argued before the court that Delhi Public School was being run by D P Dhar Memorial Trust and it was getting huge sums of money in the form of donation.
“But it has become a commercial centre. The school is charging huge sums of money from the students but failed to provide the education of the standard,” advocate Manzoor said.
The school on July 27, 2009 had issued a circular ordering increase in the fee by 30 per cent with effect from 30 September, 2009.
The counsel for petitioners told court that the school had also hiked fee by 17 per cent in 2008 and said it was illegally charging money from parents. He said that the school had also increased the bus fee.
He said the parents had approached the top officials of the education department about the same following which a delegation of officials from education department visited the school and asked the school management to disclose all sources of income. He said the school had failed to come up with the detail.
He prayed that the court should restrict school from charging exorbitant fee. The court later issued notice to the school and asked the management to file objections within a week.

The huge inflow of traffic causes congestion as Srinagar south has mere one road link with the City centre while there’s also a shortage of cops. As a result, those who try to reach home early often get late.
