The Punjab Government has directed to the private schools not to increase fees for 2020-21 academic session.

A letter sent to the managements/principals of all private and unaided schools of the state, Director Public Instructions (SE) Sukhjit Pal Singh said the directive had been issued in view of the lockdown.

The schools have also been asked that they should five the option to the parents to pay fees on monthly or quarterly basis. The managements are further advised to sympathetically consider the cases of students whose parents' livelihoods might have been adversely impacted due to the lockdown, for fee waiver/concession and no child may be denied access to education (online or regular) over non-payment of fee.

It is also directed that the school managements should not resort to removal of any teacher or reduction in the monthly salary or total emoluments teaching/non-teaching staff. The schools shall endeavour to impart online/ distance learning so that education is not adversely impacted due to the present or future lockdowns.
