A visitor on request of anonymity said the school staff was charging amount for parking. He alleged that this was an illegal way of charging parking fees from them as the school had no authority to charge Rs. 30 as parking fee. 

Sukhdarshan Singh, president of Nakal Virodhi Teachers Front, said, "Many of the candidates complained that the school authorities are charging Rs. 30 as fees for two wheelers and Rs. 50 for car parking. The candidates had already paid to appear for this examination and there were no instructions to pay extra for parking. I will take the complaint to the higher authorities of the education department."

However, school manager Surinder Pal said, "We charged Rs. 20 for parking from the visitors who appeared for the examination. We also deployed staff for the security of these vehicles. There was nothing illegal."
