Chandigarh: The resentment among parents about the increase in fees by private schools across the country has increased a lot. In this sequence, Atul Vohra, a resident of Chandigarh Sector-52, has written a letter to the government seeking permission to sell the kidneys so that they can pay the fees of their children. Nothing is being done to bring justice to parents on behalf of the Chandigarh administration and education department.
In the letter, Atul Vohra, a resident of Sector-52, has written that his son studies in a private school in Sector-44. His job has been lost due to the lockdown. Due to this, his salary has also stopped, which has made it difficult to run the house. The school is pressurizing him to pay full fees, which is Rs 32000. He wrote that it has become difficult to pay house rent and instalments. According to Atul's letter, 'There are five members in my family. I am living on my mother's pension. A case is going on in the family court and there is no money even to pay the lawyer's fees in that case. Vohra wrote that the law should be changed and legally allowed to sell kidneys so that they can collect money and pay fees.
Vohra wrote in his letter that the private school is arbitrary about the fees. No action is being taken by the department against the schools. The fees which the Regulatory Authority was constituted following the orders of the Ministry of Home Affairs, also did no work.
