SSC hall-tickets: Private schools resent government’s directive

The announcement by the director of government examinations instructing private schools not to insist on clearance of dues by students for issuing SSC hall-tickets has invited the ire of private school managements.

The directive, which hinted at introducing online downloading of hall-tickets, was opposed by the AP Recognised Schools’ Management Association (APRSMA) which addressed a letter to the department asking the directorate to foot the bill for the amounts due.

“Except for the few elite schools, most of the institutions have fee dues from 20 per cent of the students appearing for SSC examination. Most of the students do not pay fee for a quarter or six months which is collected before issuing them the hall-tickets. While parents reserve seats in corporate junior colleges for their wards, they can now choose to refuse payment of the dues if the hall-tickets are put up on a website for direct download. We have requested the government to fill this gap on their own terms if such a move is introduced,” said S. Sreenivas Reddy, president of APRSMA.

The private school managements have requested a clarification on the issue by Monday as the examinations are scheduled to begin on Thursday.
