Hyderabad: The Joint Action Committee on School Fee Regulation (JAC-SFR) received a jerk on Monday as the Directorate of School Education informed that no committee was formed to investigate the finances of 12 private schools in the city, while replying to a RTI query filed by a member of the JAC-SFR.

Even though the government formed committee to investigate finances of 12 private schools, such a response left the JAC-SFR officials perplexed. The JAC-SFR said the Commissioner of School Education stated that “report has been submitted to the government and the committee has found schools making a profit of 50% to 70%”.

Demanding the government to unveil the reality and immediately make investigation report public if it was actually conducted, the JAC-SFR appealed people to condemn the lackadaisical attitude of the office of the Commissioner and Directorate of School Education in handling the grievances of the parents.

The JAC-SFR demanded the government to take steps to prevent schools from hiking fee for next academic year 2016-17. It also demanded that schools should be brought under ambit of Admission and Fee Regulatory Committee which regulates fee for professional colleges and to enact a new law to give statutory status to autonomous fee regulatory.
