Parents protest against Chandigarh schools for charging fees during lockdown
Parents of students in at least five Chandigarh schools are protesting against charging tuition fees during Covid-19 lockdown. Schools, however, insist on being paid to cover expenses including staff salaries. Parents say schools have no right to charge fee unless they are taking online classes. The UT education department refuses to mediate between the two, having recently modified its March 29 order that had deferred payment of fees.
