The Directorate of Education filed an appeal in the apex court, saying that if the order is not stayed, there will be great injustice as such institutions have already been allowed by the government to charge 100 per cent tuition fee.
The Supreme Court on Monday refused to stay the order of the Delhi High Court that extended the lockdown last year to private unaided schools in the national capital. An annual, development fee was allowed to be levied for the subsequent period.
A bench of Justices AM Khanwilkar, Dinesh Maheshwari and Aniruddha Bose did not agree with the contention of Directorate of Education (DOE), Government of Delhi that it has the right to regulate fee collection by unaided private schools and allow fee collection. The order of the High Court should be stayed.
