On Tuesday Maharashtra Education Minister Vinod Tawde said that the government would take steps to ensure a firm enforcement of the fee regulation law in educational institutions.
“Now, parents can complain to the committee headed by retired High Court judge V G Palshikar,” Tawde said.
He said parents should participate in meetings of the Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) at schools.
If the PTA is strong, there will be no irregularities in schools, he added.
The minister also said that there will be no compulsion for parents to purchase stationery from the school.
In May 2017, Tawde had announced that the Maharashtra Educational Institutions (Regulation of Collection of Fee) Act-2011 would be amended to ensure that schools in the state do not charge exorbitant fees from students. It came into force in 2015.
