"Therefore, it is incumbent upon us to ask the Principal Secretary, Education, Government of Delhi to file a status report on affidavit apprising this court of the steps taken by them in consonance with the directions of this court and the recommendations of the committee, before the next date of hearing (on May 30)," the bench said.
The panel had by way of several reports recommended refund of excess fees by over 500 private schools in the national capital.
The bench was today told by an NGO, on whose plea the directions were issued by the high court in 2011, that the orders of the court and the panel's recommendations had not been implemented by the government.
The NGO told the bench that over 500 private schools were yet to refund Rs 350 crore of excess fee taken from students on the pretext of implementing the Sixth Pay Commission and sought initiation of contempt proceedings against all such institutions.
