Unjustified fee charges & hike at Amity International School
I am starting this petition to strongly raise the issue of unjustified fee charges & hike for all classes at Amity International School, Mayur Vihar, Delhi.
I belong to a middle class family and I will be frank, at times,struggle to save and pay fee for two children at the beginning of new academic year.
We think about it, discuss with few close friends and then actually do not take any concrete step to raise the matter with concerned authorities. Years have passed and we are silently paying exorbitant Annual Fee, development fee which amounts to almost 15,000--20,000 each year for each kid. I have two kids and it doubles up for me and many more parents who have more than one child studying here.
Requests sent to management for proper explanation of charges mentioned in school fee are not addressed for last 1 year now. Even courts and Government Of Delhi have mentioned that this malpractice of overcharging for student fee EXISTS.
Annual fee is not supposed to be paid every year for existing students. They collect amount in tune to crores every year under this particular fee head from us.
Development fee is almost equivalent to Annual fee and both add upto 3-4 crores every year of what Amity collects. Do you think you have seen any such development in last few years?
Plus we are paying for Sports fee. There are no special sports facilities provided and in fact there is no proper ground or sports equipment provided. We are paying fee for our kids to be in ground of school premise and just to run around.
By signing this petition, you can help yourself (irrespective of your financial capabilities) & many families (like mine) who struggle to collect money to pay into kitty of Amity. And on top, avoid paying for what is not justified.
I believe and few of you would agree that all this extra money that we pay can be better utilized to provide more facilities to our kids at home and many more things.
We today have 2 choices today - ignore it and let it go on how it has for last many years or make a collective effort to save our hard earned money and not easily give up to unjustified financial demands of School Management.
I urge support from all AIS, Mayur Vihar, parents to sign this petition against unjust charges levied upon us. Parents from other branches and schools are also welcome.
I am definitely going ahead and will try best in my capacity to bring whatever relief possible. Your support will only ease things for all the students & parents.
Request you to sign this petition and share with other parents you have in your circle.
