HYDERABAD: The issue of fee regulation is back in the news with Prof Tirupathi Rao finally submitting his report earlier this month. Parents and students bodies are demanding that the report is made public and the education department clarify measures, if any, planned to curtail fee hike by private schools in the city. 

Parents have termed the silence around the report as government’s inability to regulate fee. “The report has been submitted on 19 June and till now the government has not said a word about it. We got to know about it unofficially. Parents are being made scapegoats in the name of Pro Tirupathi Rao Committee Report,” said N Narayana, president, Telangana Parents Association (TPA).

The committee had been given a three months extension in March to explain the rationale behind its recommendation of annual fee hike of 10 per cent in all private schools, after being criticized by parents.

Parents added that school managements have understood the government’s weakness and therefore intensified their fleecing this year. Meanwhile, over 200 activists of Students Federation of India staged a dharna at the Directorate of School Education on Friday demanding regulation of fee by means of an Act to regulate.
