Guide­lines soon on text­book pric­ing

Sunday Express - - INDIA -

With the start of new aca­demic ses­sion, there have been reg­u­lar com­plaints that pri­vate schools are ex­or­bi­tantly charg­ing par­ents of the stu­dents for books and uni­forms. The par­ents have com­plained that the schools are forc­ing them to buy books, note­books and uni­forms at ex­or­bi­tant rates from shops in­side schools and des­ig­nated “cloth shops”. Now, au­thor­i­ties are car­ry­ing out in­spec­tion of pri­vate schools. Ad­vi­sor to Gov­er­nor, Khur­shid Ahmed Ganai di­rected the Di­rec­tors of School Ed­u­ca­tion, Kash­mir and Jammu to ex­am­ine the com­plaints and to rec­om­mend mea­sures to reg­u­late the rates. He said the govern­ment would is­sue guide­lines to reg­u­late prices of text­books and uni­forms, and to also reg­u­late the fee struc­ture.
