Delhi government has decided to inspect those private schools in the national capital which have submitted proposals seeking sanction for fee hike.
After distressed parents approached Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia complaining about fee hike by private schools ranging from 20 to 55 per cent, the government had in April asked the institutes to seek prior sanction from the Directorate of Education (DoE) before increasing student fee and submit detailed proposals in this regard.
“On scrutiny, discrepancies have been found in the proposals uploaded by the schools. Some of the documents were incomplete, illegible or not in specified format,” DoE said in a communication to schools.
“The directorate has decided that a team of empanelled CAs would carry out an inspection of these schools and verify their accounts books and other records maintained by them,” it added.
The schools have been warned of strict action in case of non-cooperation with the inspection team.
