TN govt regulates fee structure for private schools
The Tamil Nadu government recently passed the circular and ordered a new fee structure for the Private as well as unaided schools a fee slab of Rs 3,500 to 11000 .
THE TAMIL Nadu government recently passed a circular and ordered a new fee structure for the private as well as unaided schools a fee slab of Rs 3,500 to 11000 .
 
The school fees which are regulated in Tamil Nadu at present is Rs 11000 for Higher secondary school, Rs 9,000 for High School, Rs 8,000 for Middle School and Rs 5,000 for Elementary School. The committee has also proposed a 10% additional expenditure charge for future development in schools and this will be meant for all Private, unaided as well as Anglo – Indian Schools under the regulation of state board.

Some school heads are saying that this rule is not fit for them to be able to maintain the school structure but above all, the people or committee who has enough money in background only should open the school.

 
But at present it is a fact that education is now becoming a business and there are huge amounts of monetary transactions. If the government decides on the new rule then such schools in TN as well as all over India, will not be affected because they are taking enough money and there is no evidence of it as no receipt is given under such conditions.
 
The donations amount varies from Rs. 5, 000 to 75,000 in private schools. The parents are worried about their children’s’ future and if they want better education for their children then then they have only one option and that is to shut their mouth and spend money according to the school’s demands. So these all are the big drawbacks in India. The government or education minister must raid schools to clear all these matters because huge amounts of money in the name of fees and donations are being snatched from the parents.

Its totally wrong on the part of some private schools who are saying that this regulation will effect the salary of teachers. But these very schools are taking high fees and yet they pay very low salary and the teachers are just temporary. If the teachers demand higher salary, then he or she is out and other new, low paid teachers are appointed. So these big drawbacks must be cleared by taking stern action.

 
The State government has fixed fees for 10,934 private self-financing schools across Tamil Nadu,
At present the fee structure for 10,233 schools was fixed on the basis of income and expenditure of the schools and The 10,951 private schools in the State would be informed of the fee structure and that will stand for three years.

 
Already there are many complaints of high fees charged by the schools and the government has taken appropriate action. It is also a known fact that this rule may remain on circular only and the procedure will go on same as before because when it comes to corruption, Tamil Nadu in still stands in second place in India and India stands 5th in world according to the International Transparency Report.

Well, we all appreciate and thank Govt. of tamil Nadu for being an example to curb the atrocities on fee structure in Private Schools. Despite the Supreme court order, Schools are collecting fees higher than fixed for them. People have made money somehow, Now enough black money is available, but illteracy is very high at the other end. Eventually rich realised that money without attaching the education can never lead respectable life and therefore they can afford to buy education. In any society, when Education and Medicine is made business, the society can never grow with humanity. If we notice carefully, any point of time, only rich countires and rich people are problematic to the society. In order to achieve 100 % results in 10th and 12th standards, these private schools follow very ugly stratgies with 8th and 9th standard students. They put hell a lot troubles to the parents. They do not allow students to sit for 10th and 12th standard exams. This is very strongly noticed in coimbatore city and coimbatore districts. One must realise that any school with 100 % results from 8th Standand till 12th standard are the best to study and grow with. Unfortunately, even literates fall into these traps not understanding what education means. The focus of these private schools are not with weak and average students, their target is only with strong students. The students with strong aptitue do not require any support, they can even score very high, when they study in govt.schools too. Only with this catagory of students, all these private schools are enjoying business, by making a propoganda that they are best. We thank that govt has stepped in. It must make much more stringent and hard regulations to curb all the atrocities happending in private schools. Unless a monitoring body is appointed, all efforts of the govt. would go in vain. Govt must ensure that this is perfectly implemented. Let us grow consciouss nation. GVM

it is not fair on the part of tamilnadu govt to implement fee reg act in a vague manner.tThere are few schools who demand donations and charge more fees.on the contrary 80-90%scholls charge reasonable fees based on their demands ,infrastucture etc.because of the above mentioned schools rest of 80-90%schools are affected.can tamilnadu govt form a comitee for miscellaneous expenses like drainge blocks,furniture breakage etc and fixreasonable wages for scanvengers and carpenters and monitor them.a scholl has to run from pillar to post several times to obtain fire license,collector license,sanitary certificate etcby paying huge amounts to the authorities concerned.can the govt regulate them. tn govt has charged managment contribution from the schools based on strength of the school.why should the management pay when there is no grant from the govt to private schools.the govt is collecting huge amount as inspection fee and application fee etc.how can the management pay according to the present regulations.did the comitee take into account the above mentioned fees when formulating this fee structure.This has become an habit by the govt to torture the pvt schools during april and may when the admissions are going on in all the schools.just because some news papers publish articles without knowing the facts the govt should not act in vague manner. instead control the news papers which charge huge amt for placing advts for just 3-4 lines.can the govt put their legs in pvt managements shoes

I 've seen a proceedings of the Pvt Schools Fee Determination Committee - Chennai on 10/05/2010. The management of the school got a shock on seeing the fee prescribed for their school. I delebrately avoiding mentioning of the school fearing the consequences. The recommended fee is no way suitable to the school. For instance the committee has prescribed Rs. 1885 for LKG to the said school for three years. The parents are sending their children to private tuition after school hours paying Rs.150 per month that too for an hour only. Whereas the child spends his whole day at school and the school is asked to collect Rs. 1885 is some what not reasonable. Without exception the government has collected all the details of infrastructure available with all the schools. But the committe not keeping in their mind and just ignored is paining them like anything. Moreover the committee did not take into consideration of the infrastructure available, the standard and quality of teaching, playground, play materials, library and lab facilities with the school it seems. Rediculously another school nearby to the school which lacks the said infrastructure quality of teaching etc has given some higher fee structure. It is not just justifiable. The govenment or any machinery cannot hold the paying parents who wish to spent more on their child's education. Now a days sending their children to the school which collects higher fee has become a prestige issue. The cinema theatres charging higher rates for the few weeks and now a days no control over anything. The doctors charging the consultation fee like anything and no control over that. The proceeding is ambiguous about the textbook fee nad notebook fee to be collected. The school has prescribed a book for LKG and UKG which has been supplied by a leading book company costs Rs.500 and Rs.600. It is full of activity based. This has got a wide acceptance from the parents and the pupils have responded their learning capbilties like Eye-Hand-Mind co ordination. Can the school go back to old slate - pencil method to teach their children or curtail the infrastructural facilities provided?
