NEW DELHI: While Central Schools or Kendriya Vidyalaya run by the Union Human Resource Ministry’s Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan (KVS) have begun the process of holding interactive sessions with parents for implementing government’s move for cashless transaction from January 1, private schools appear to be reluctant.

Many Central Schools in the national capital are holding sessions with parents on December 31 where video presentation would be given on educating parents on cashless payments in school like fee and other expenses to be paid to the school.

However, the response of private schools has not been very encouraging. The Union Ministry of HRD has directed Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and state governments to expedite the process so that cashless economy can be pushed further.

An HRD ministry official pointed out that fees are due for the next quarter in schools. But private schools have not shown any encouraging response. Infact private schools have not complied with the direction by the CBSE to put up their fee structure and other expense details related to their finances on their school website.

The CBSE earlier this month directed schools affiliated to it to introduce online, cashless transactions, and to begin it from January, 1 2017. In a letter to schools, CBSE secretary Joseph Emmanuel had directed the principals to introduce cashless ways for fees collection only through online.
