Increasing school fee
Created by Updated on Apr 07, 2014
Hi, we the parents of school going children worry at the start of every academic session - the increase of school fee! My child is studying in DPS Vasundhara, Ghaziabad, which has increased the school fee by more than 40% in the academic session. Now at the start of first quarter, we are required to pay Rs. 41,500/- for a primary student! Besides the increase in Tuition fee, there is tremendous increase in DA coverage, which itself should not be part of the school fee. Then Air conditioning fee which is being forcefully charged from parents has also been increased. The books of Class Nursery -V are being provided by school for which Rs. 4500 is being charged (without giving any detailed breakup) which is much higher as compared with the cost of books for classes like VI-VIII. Would any body can explain what are the books being taught ???????? Are other schools in the NCR are also behaving in the same ir-responsible way!!!!!!!!

Hi Payal!After the recent ruling that schools can't charge the yearly fees upfront, it is seen that a lot of schools have retorted to fees hikes of an inordinate nature like the ones experienced by you. Having said that, you could ask the school administration to share the logic behind this increase and details under various heads.
