128 private schools in Delhi roll back 'arbitrary' fee hike

Around 128 schools in Delhi have rolled back their "arbitrary" fee hikes following complaints from parents, an official said.

Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal had issued directions to the schools to roll back their "arbitrary" fee hike.

The Directorate of Education (DoE) had in April sent notices to 195 private schools and asked the school heads to roll back their fee hike.

Last month, Kejriwal had asked DoE to submit a compliance report on whether the private schools had rolled back their fee hike as ordered by the government.

"Out of 195 private schools, 128 have informed us that they are rolling back their hiked fees. Remaining 67 private schools will soon be served show-cause notices for not complying with the orders," DoE official said.
