‘Will waive off fees for wards of transporters, other affected families’


Srinagar: Stating that they have decided to waive of the school fees and others dues of the wards of transporters, Private School Association Kashmir (PSAK) on Monday said that the school authorities who are conducting the examination of students despite government orders must be dealt with strictly.

Talking to KNS, PSAK chairman, Ghulam Nabi Var said that the people who suffered loss due to the turmoil in the Valley will not be compelled to deposit fee for the period of unrest.
He said, “We have already decided to waive off the school fees and other dues of the students whose parents are affiliate with transport business. We will also waive off the fees of those having genuine issues.”

Var said that they can’t give any general instructions regarding the waiver of school fees as there are several schools which are being run by local Mohalla committees and trusts. “We will be establishing a grievance cell regarding the issues pertaining to school fees of the students and the parents whose business got affected due to the unrest in the Valley can contact us and we will certainly resolve their issue after investigation,” he told KNS.

He said that the schools who are getting government aid must waive off the schools fees and others dues of the students. 

Var said that waiving off the school fees of the students in general can led to the closure of private institutions. “We will only waive off the fees of those having genuine issues,” he said.

While referring to the query regarding the schools conducting exams despite government orders, Var said, “Any school violating the government orders must be disaffiliated. Government should look into the matter and anybody found guilty must be dealt with strictly.”

He said that following the government orders, they have directed the schools to elevate the students to next level and start taking classes.

“No exams will be conducted to the students’ upto class 9th and 11th,” he said. (KNS)
