Delhi Government and students appeals against private schools charging annual fees


New Delhi, June 07, 2021: Several appeals, including one by the AAP government, have been moved in the Delhi High Court against its single judge’s decision allowing private unaided recognised schools to collect annual and development charges from students for the period after the lockdown ended in the national capital last year. The petitions moved on behalf of the students studying in the private unaided schools that have contended that the single judge’s decision was based on incorrect facts and law according to the reports published in

The single judge, in his May 31 judgment had quashed two office orders of April and August 2020 issued by the Directorate of Education (DoE) of the Delhi government forbidding and postponing collection of annual charges and development fees, saying they were “illegal” and “ultra vires” the powers of the respondent (DoE) stipulated under the Delhi School Education (DSE) Act and the Rules.
