The concerned state education officer has instructed the school management not to force the parents of these students to pay the revised fee," Tawde said in a statement today. "The parents who have not paid their fees, should wait for a week. In the next week, there would be hearings and a decision would be taken regarding the fee structure and also fee hike. Till now, no school student has been expelled from," the minister said.
Meanwhile, the parents claimed that the school management has been increasing the fee every year by at least 15 per cent. An affected parent Sakshi Dahanukar said, "The school has sent expulsion notices to us but we are ready to pay the fees according to old structure, but not new."
