Members of Feed Foundation, an NGO, along with parents of the students of Ryan International School, Dugri, submitted a memorandum to deputy commissioner (DC) Rahul Tewari on Tuesday, requesting him to resolve the matters between the school and parents.
President of the foundation Jaspreet Singh Hobby said, "We have taken the issue to the DC along with written requests by the parents of the students of Ryan International School, Dugri branch."

He said that they were opposed to the hike in fees by the school, with school reportedly charging Rs5,000-6,000 per month from a student.

He alleged that the Dugri branch of Ryan International School was not affiliated with the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE).

Moreover, there was no playground in the school, he alleged, adding that the school was allegedly breaching the building by laws.

He further said that they had several meetings with the school authorities, but the matter was not resolved; and thus, he urged the DC to resolve the matter.

Though Parveena John, principal of Ryan International School, Chandigarh Road, was not available for a comment.

However, earlier on May 4, Praveena John had said: "Every school is hiking fee every year; hence we also hiked the fee, which was nominal. Above all, parents approach us daily, even though we had conveyed them in advance that we would be hiking fee."
