Breaking News: Admission Fees Banned in Private Schools Across Jammu and Kashmir

Admission Fees Banned in Private Schools Across Jammu and Kashmir

In a significant development today, the Committee for Fixation & Regulation of Fee of Private Schools, J&K (FFRC), chaired by Justice Sunil Hali, has imposed a ban on the collection of admission fees by private schools in the Union Territory.

Circular Highlights:

  • Circular No: O/FFRC of 2023
  • Date: 20.12.2023

Private schools are now prohibited from charging admission fees, a move aimed at ensuring compliance with the Jammu and Kashmir School Education Act 2002. This statute strictly outlines permissible fees, including tuition fees, annual fees, transport fees, and voluntary special purpose fees.

The FFRC has received complaints alleging not only the charging of admission fees but also the lack of proper receipts for these transactions, raising concerns about transparency.

Key Instructions:

  1. Ban on Admission Fees: Private schools are instructed not to charge admission fees, as per the established statute.
  2. Proactive Measures: If a complaint is proven against any private school, the admission fee will be deemed to have been charged from all admitted students, leading to legal action against the school management.
  3. CBI Inquiry: Denial by school management will lead to a CBI inquiry. Adverse findings may result in legal actions, including de-recognition/dis-affiliation.

Individuals with further information or complaints can contact the FFRC through email at [email protected], visit their website www.jkffc.in, or call Srinagar: 0194-4034841 and Jammu: 0191-2956990.

This bold move by the FFRC aims to ensure fair and transparent practices in the admission process, protecting the rights of students and guardians.
