On June 16 the Directorate of Education directed schools to charge 50 per cent of regular monthly fees from students during the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.
UARSoM was reacting to a statement issued by AMSGO on Monday that UARSoM requesting at least 70 per cent of the tuition fees from the parents/guardians is akin to dishonoring the notification of Education (S) that directs schools to collect 50 per cent of the monthly payable fees from students.
The state government should first take decisions in connection with the students who are not able to get admissions in schools and later discuss the fee structure, the AMSGO said..
