Calcutta HC directs schools can't stop students from writing exams, pay full fee

The Calcutta High Court has directed that students will have to pay the entire claim of fees made by school authorities by October 25, while asking the schools/institutions not to prevent any student from writing any board or annual or mid-term assessment examination of the school. A division bench comprising Justice I P Mukerji and Justice Moushumi Bhattacharya directed that students will have to pay the entire claim of fees, including its disputed part.

The court, hearing many petitions over school fees during the pandemic when classes are being held in the online mode, also directed that all rustication orders shall be kept in abeyance for the time being.

The bench directed that the undisputed and disputed parts of the bill may be segregated by each student and paid separately, indicating in a written note accompanying such payment the amount which is disputed and which is admitted.

The school authorities will be entitled to straightway appropriate the admitted amount, while they would have to deposit the disputed amount in a separate account. The court directed that for a worthwhile, the school authorities will not prevent any student from sitting in any board or annual or mid-term assessment examination of the school.

Petitioner parents claimed that the bills raised by schools and other educational institutions are not in accordance with an order of a division bench dated October 13, 2020.
