Justice Basu is again dissatisfied with the fee structure of private schools in West Bengal
Calcutta High Court Justice Biswajit Basu, who has already given strict orders to private schools in the state, has reminded school owners that education should not become a salable commodity. This time again he criticized the state government.
He raised the question, of why the state is not looking at how much fees private schools will increase when they will be increased by the government.
Today, on Monday, the judge asked the state government to formulate a guideline while raising this question in the High Court. Incidentally, on this day, a case was being heard in court regarding the school's salary. The case raised the question as to why the money is being taken apart from the tuition fee even though the school is closed. This complaint, however, is not new, since the corona period, questions about such salaries of private schools have been raised time and again. There have been several cases.
Today, Monday again in a similar case the state has to face the question. Justice Bose asked what the state is about the increase in school fees. Is there any surveillance at all? Justice Bose also drew comparisons with other states. He said other states have their own state laws on fee policies. Is there any such law or governing body in the state that looks at how much the fee will be raised? Are there any guidelines on what the salary structure will be? Has the government made any such proposal at all?
Advocate Biswaroop Bhattacharya on behalf of the state government said that there is no such guideline. Not getting a satisfactory answer, Justice Basu suggested that there should be a guideline regarding salary. Whether private schools like that guideline or not, the issue is important. Commenting that private schools cannot be a profit-making business, the judge further asked, 'If Rajasthan can guide fees, why not in this state?' Justice Basu also said that he will ask the school boards to conduct inspections in this regard. Commenting that unqualified teachers should be excluded from these boards as unqualified are excluded from government school recruitment.নুসরত জাহানের বিরুদ্ধে ২৪ কোটি টাকা প্রতারণার অভিযোগ! ইডির দ্বারস্থ প্রতারিতরা
