More trouble for students and parents enrolled in Bharti Krishna Vidya Vihar School as the school administration has decided to postpone all classes for all the students until the fees matter is resolved.
Contrary to all the protest of parents being charged extra fees BKVV has taken a big step and has issued a letter to the parents regarding postponing further classes of all the students until the matter is resolved.
The letter issued by the school administration reads â€œWe also express our gratitude to those 800 parents who, in spite of confusion created by newspapers regarding the payment of fees, came forward and paid their fees and thus helped us to pay the part salaries of our teachers and other employees till now. But more than 700 parents still have not yet paid any fees for the Academic Session 2020-2021 and the school is now facing difficulties in meeting further expenditure for the coming monthsâ€.
â€œIn light of the decision taken by the Bombay High Court Writ Petition No.95629 of 2020, dated 01/03/2021, all the parents are requested to clear all outstanding dues to help the institute to run smoothlyâ€ the letter further reads.
â€œIn light of the current situation, the school has taken a decision to postpone all classes for all the students until the fees matter is resolvedâ€.
The school has asked to clear 90% of due fees of the academic Session 2020-21 before June 30
â€œIt is a humble request to parents to co-operate and clear the outstanding dues for Academic Session 2019-2020 and the Academic Session 2020-21 by giving post dated cheques. Further, waiver of 10% of the fee amount will be granted to the parents who clear 90% dues for Academic Session 2020-21 before 30th of June, 2021 and kindly note that whosoever will avail this offer, will not be entitled for any other favour in the Academic Session 2021-2022â€ the letter reads.
When asked Principal Chaaya Chaturvedi about the letter being circulated to the parents the principal refuse to comment anything.
Recently on the ongoing spat between school administration and parents regarding school fees Maharashtra Minister of State for School Education Bachhu Kadu said to take action against school charging exorbitant fees, while the schools are closed. He ordered that a criminal case must be filed against such school, who is charging extra fees. He also directed the officers at the Divisional Education Department to take sever action against the school taking extra fees.
