We have received the circular regarding payment of fees for academic year 2020-21. We do appreciate the waiver of 20000 Rs. in the fees from the management.

This is to highlight that we as parents would like to understand the compliance of the school, with the law of the land in relation to the fee hikes. We want to and need to be assured that the increments are as per the law and there is no malpractice. We have no objection to any compliant and justified fee hike and the due dates shall be honored accordingly.

Request you to please answer the queries raised by the parents regarding the same. We have communicated these queries to the PTA and they are still unanswered and hence raising the same to school management directly. Our queries are not directed to the teachers and there are no grievances that concern them in this letter.
