The association members highlighted number of problems of private schools of the State which included eight per cent hike in fee whose base is kept August 2014, NoCs from different departments, recognition up to 8th Class functioning since decades etc.
The members demanded amendment in Order No 106 FFC of 2017 dated October 20, 2017 issued by Fee Fixation Committee (FFC) in which educational institutions are authorised to increase eight per cent of the tuition fee by considering base of August 2014 as FFC has come out with a draft to regulate enhancement of fee structure of Private Educational Institutions in 2017.
