According to parents, the school increased the fee by 20% in 2017, prompting a protest by Parents Teachers Association.
When the school authorities refused to budge, the state child welfare commission was approached by PTA. A judgement was reached and the school agreed to cut the fee by 10% if parents paid the hike (20%) in 2017.
But the parents alleged fee wasn't reduced.
Meanwhile, principal says school's management took the decision
Parents said since the school didn't follow orders, they stopped paying fees. On its part, the school's principal GG Rajelekshmy claimed the decision was taken by the management.
According to rules, schools can't give TCs for non-payment of fees.
Parents also asked how TCs were given without informing them; they now plan to approach the court against the school.
