Hyderabad: Telangana Deputy Chief Minister and Education Minister K Srihari on Monday turned down the opposition’s demand to bring an act to curb the collection of exorbitant fees by private schools from students, as the orders issued earlier in this regard were pending in the courts. He said that the government would address the issue soon by holding a meeting with all stakeholders.

Replying to a question by TDP and BJP legislators during the Question Hour in the Assembly, he said that previous governments had issued two Government Orders 44 and 91 to regulate collection of fees. However, the managements of private schools challenged the GOs in the High Court and secured a stay.

The State government has filed a Special Leave Petition in the Supreme Court to vacate those stays. As the issue is pending before the court, government would not enforce any new acts, he added.

Stating that he would soon convene a meeting with the associations of parents and private school managements to resolve the issue, he said notices were already served on 12 private schools in the city and the department was examining the replies from the managements. He also clarified that there were 152 un-recognised schools operating in the city.

However, he said the students of these schools have been permitted to appear for SSC exams. Earlier, BJP floor leader K Laxman alleged the officials of Education Department were encouraging private schools who are collecting lakhs of rupees towards fee.
