Even after the strict regulation by the education department, the cases of schools charging the fee at high rates is not limiting. The latest case is from the Vivekananda complex school of Sanpada. The school has issued an order that students studying in standard 5th to 10th have to buy stationery items from the school and it is mandatory. Not only this, the school has also added rates of notebooks and textbooks in the school fees. In this case, when the parents complained to the school administration, the school administration stated that fees will remain the same.
Troubled with this fee hike and school's attitude, parents wrote the letter to the education department, but no action was taken. It is worth noting that on 21 April, a large number of parents protested against the schools in the Azad Maidan. Not only this, a group of parents had also met State Education Minister Vinod Tawde and he stated that action will be taken against the schools as the administration cannot force anyone to buy stationery items from the school itself. Regardless of that the school is flouting the orders of the minister.
