HYDERABAD: Prof Tirupathi Rao has once again sought an extension for submission of the committee’s report that was constituted to look into the setting up of District Fee Regulatory Committee in state.
The report which was to be submitted on July 30, has now got an extension of another 45 days.
Parents association has threatened to quit and boycott the committee if both the government and committee is unable to justify the repeated delays in the submission of the report.
“The state government has given yet another extension to Prof Tirupati Rao Committee. After discussions with the committee members and the varying versions of the government, we get the impression that the Schools’ Associations have ensured indefinite postponement of the report by using their influence,” said Ashish Naredi, member of Hyderabad School Parents Association (HSPA).
Initially, the report was to be submitted on May 29 but was postponed on grounds that Prof Rao needed more time. After that the report has been delayed for one of the other reason — for want of more time, to study the Gujarat and Tamil Nadu model of DFRC, then to study a few schools — the latest being that Prof Rao has asked the government to provide the fee structures of all 12,000 plus schools in Telangana.
“Hyderabad School Parents Association, will soon write a protest letter to the committee and government seeking an explanation and demanding an immediate meeting of the committee with all the members. If we are not satisfied with the response, HSPA will quit and boycott the Committee,” said Naredi.
