In an order issued here on Sunday, District Magistrate Abhishek Prakash said, “In the duration of emergency following the outbreak of Covid-19, parents should not be pressured to deposit fee and no students should be deprived of online classes. Nor the name of any student be struck-off.”
Once the emergency ends, quarterly fee can be adjusted and parents be informed about it, he said. The Lucknow DM also said that action will be initiated against those who violated this order.
