If the parent does not pay the fees, the student cannot be stopped from appearing for the exam. by parents School Fees Schools cannot ruin a child’s future by not being filled. On the basis of fees, registration of a student or school leave certificate i.e. SLC or any document cannot be stopped. Children’s education cannot be harmed because of the fault of any party. Right to education is a fundamental right. In one case, the Sessions Court of Rewari has made this remark.
The court said that ‘if the fees have not been paid, the schools can recover the fees by filing a civil suit in the court’.
The matter, which was being heard in the Sessions Court of Rewari, was related to the SLC of two children. 14-year-old Deepanshu (Class 10) and his sister 13-year-old Deepika (Class 8) studied at GD Goenka Public School in Rewari. Both siblings were studying here for the last 4 years. This year their parents got the admission of both the children in some other school. But parents say that GD Goenka refused to give SLC to the children.
The parents allege that the school did not even provide Deepanshu’s board registration papers. The registration for class 10 board is done in class 9 only. The school said that they had not paid the fees.
Advocate Kailash Chand, appearing for the students, said that ‘the children and their parents also went to the education department and other government officials regarding this matter. But got no help. After that petition was filed in Rewari Court on 23 May 2022.
School was charging illegal fees: Chand
Advocate Kailash Chand told that ‘Parents say that the school was charging illegal fees, which was a violation of Haryana Education Rules 2003.’ On behalf of the school, advocate PK Vats said that ‘we did not demand any illegal fees. We respect the order of the court.
This matter came before Civil Judge Ritu Yadav for the first time. On 18 August, he gave a verdict in favor of the students and ordered the school to give SLC and board exam registration papers to the children. On August 25, the school challenged this decision in the sessions court. The sessions court also ruled to give documents to the children.
