first_imgAfter parents of 50 school students got late in paying the annual development charges, the Presidium School of Ahinsa Khand 1 in Ghaziabad refused to declare the examination results of these students.   As the results are being kept on hold, the parents are protesting against the school authorities. The annual end-of-the-term examination results for classes, from kindergarten to Class nine, were declared on March 12 but these 50 students were left. After the parents reported to the police authorities, a meeting was held between the parents and school authorities. The parents started the protest at 9 am in the morning, when they met the school authorities in order to ask about the split and use of an annual-fee.Shivani Jain, a parent who was facing the similar problem said, “If the school continues to withhold our children’s results, it will spoil their future as no school will give them admission without a report card. We have paid the tuition fees and other charges till November and have only withheld the development charges. We want them to maintain transparency and explain why this additional charge is being levied.”Moreover, the parents said the school has been sending notice on regular basis saying that they will cancel the admission if the charges are not paid. A total of Rs 40,000 annually is charged by the school as development charges.The school authorities have asked these parents either to submit the fees latest by March 31, else they will issue a transfer certificate (TC) to these students.The administrative head of the school Manish Bagga said, “We have explained our pattern of management to the parents. There are various components of the total fees and these are used for extracurricular activities and sports. Moreover, this is not a new charge. Parents have been paying the fee for the past six years, so why are they withholding it now? If they do not pay the charges, all 50 students will be given a TC on April 1.”advertisementIn addition to this, the parents have even forwarded their complaints to higher authorities like human resource development (HRD) ministry, the CBSE and the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister’s office.   Check: CCTV footages to be scanned to list out cheating cases: Gujarat Board orders Click here to get more education news.Get latest updates on exam notifications and scholarships across India and abroad herelast_img
