School charging higher fee from disabled, NGO tells court

Tuesday October 16, 2012 07:24:27 PM, IANS

New Delhi: A private school in Delhi has been charging higher fee from the students with disabilities, said a petition filed Tuesday in Delhi High Court.

NGO Social Jurist filed the plea through advocate Ashok Agarwal and said Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan's Mehta Vidyalaya at K.G. Marg in central Delhi had been charging 38-39 percent higher fee from students with disabilities.

The petition is likely to come up in court Wednesday.

The plea sought directions to the school to stop over-charging disabled students and refund the excess money collected from them in the last three years.

The petition said that "the students with disabilities were charged fee and other charges around 38-39 percent higher than what was charged from general students in the academic year 2012-13".

"A Class 4 student with disabilities was charged a tuition fee of Rs.44,640 and a general student of the same class was charged Rs.32,160 during 2012-13," the petition said.

Over-charging disabled students was "totally illegal, unjust and against the provisions of Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act, 2009 and the provisions of UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities".

The school has 80 students with disabilities, advocate Agarwal said.
