There was an order not to collect tuition fees temporarily. However, no order has been issued by the government to waive off fees and the parents should not be under any confusion.
Additional Collector Vidyut Varkhedkar clarified that the government took decision that the fee will be collected in stages without giving burden to parents.
Further, it states that the school should give parents an option to deposit monthly and quarterly balance of the academic year 2019-20 and the annual school fees payable in the year 2020-21 from the students and parents.
