MUST VIEW : SCHOOL FEES : Zee News dt 25.9.11

Panel constituted to examine school fee hike
New Delhi: The Delhi government has constituted a committee after the High Court directed it to examine the accounts of private schools allegedly charging high tuition fees. 

"Justice Anil Dev Singh, retired chief justice, Rajasthan High court, will be the chairperson. JS Kochar, charted accountant and RK Sharma, retired additional director of education, will be the other two members," said the government notification issued on Saturday. 

The government had on September 9 told a division bench of Justice AK Sikri and Justice Siddharth Mridul that it will set up the panel within a week. 

Earlier, the bench had directed the setting up of the committee to audit the accounts of each of the schools to ascertain if the hike, effected in 2009, was required. 

The bench authorized the committee to scrutinize the accounts of minority schools as well. 

"If the committee finds that the hike was not required, the schools are bound to return the money to students with 9 percent interest," the bench had said in a 143-page verdict on August 12.
