Arvind Kejriwal Inaugurates East Delhi Campus Of Delhi Technological University

Return extra fees or we will take over Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal tells private schools

The government has now given a two week deadline to the schools to respond to the show cause notice.

In news that is going to bring some respite to the people of Delhi, the Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has said that if private schools that have charged extra fees do not return the money, the government will take over these schools.

On Wednesday, the government had told the High Court that it was willing to take over the 449 private schools which have not refunded the excess fee charged from parents. "Today, we intend to send out a message to the management of those schools to implement the recommendations", he added.

In 2009, a group of parents had approached the Delhi High Court and had claimed that some schools were charging them extra fees.

US, Japan step up defense cooperation to counter N.Korea
Moon has repeatedly urged North Korea not to "cross the red line" but had not previously elaborated what that would constitute. The U.N. recently enacted its toughest sanctions yet after Pyongyang conducted its long-range missile tests last month.

Out of the 1,108 private schools that were scrutinised, around 544 schools were found to have taken extra fees on the pretext of implementing recommendations of the Sixth Pay Commission. We are appealing to these 449 schools to implement the committee's recommendations and give back the extra fees. "While one school has made a surplus of Rs19 crore another had Rs5 crore surplus", said deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia. Sisodia said the government was keeping a watch on everything and will verify cases where schools have claimed to have returned fees. "Our request is (they must) pay back the extra fees". The show cause notices were issued four days ago.

According to CM the government's takeover threat is an effort to "discipline" schools accused of having overcharged students for years, gives the schools two weeks to get their act together.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, in a press conference in almost four months, said that his Aam Aadmi Party government did not intend to "interfere", but would surely "discipline" the schools, if needed.
