Fee structure panel: HC pulls up Education dept for failing to produce order

Directs Secretary Education To Appear In Person On Next Date Of Hearing


Srinagar, Apr 30: The Jammu and Kashmir High Court Tuesday directed the Secretary Education department to appear before it to explain why the government failed to produce a copy of the order with regard to constitution of a committee headed by Justice (retd) Bilal Nazki to examine the issue of fee structure and its fixation in Private Schools.
 Taking strong note of the remiss of the government to produce the order, a division bench of the High Court comprising Justices Mansoor Ahmad Mir and Ali Muhammad Magrey directed the Secretary Education department to appear in person on the next date of hearing of the case. The case has been listed for hearing after two weeks.
 Passing directions on a Public Interest Litigation, a division bench had on April 15 granted two weeks time to the government to finalize the constitution of a committee to examine the issue of fee structure and its fixation in Private Schools.
 The state counsel had informed the court that in pursuance of the directions passed by the court on October 3, 2012, the government has taken requisite steps to constitute the committee to examine the issue of fixing fee structure and finalize the same in the shortest possible time.
 Meanwhile Principal Secretary to Department of Law and Justice had submitted a panel comprising Justice (retd) Bilal Ahmad Nazki, former Chief Justice of Orrisa High Court and Justice (retd) Rattan Chand Gandi, former Acting Chief Justice of Rajasthan High Court to the Registrar General of High Court requesting it to place it before the Chief Justice for nomination of one of them as head of the Fee Fixation Committee.
 The Chief Justice had subsequently granted approval to the name of Justice (Retd) Bilal Ahmad Nazki as head of the panel. The government had to constitute the five-member committee and the order was to be produced before the court.
