"I also got to know they are not letting students take online classes if they failed to submit fee."

Sisodia said that the Delhi govt has passed an order barring colleges to take every other exchange except for one month tution fee.

"Any private school will not be allowed to increase the fee without government's permission and no school can take fee for three months. They can only take tuition fee per month. If any parent is unable to pay the fee, students should not be barred from attending online classes," he said.

He also said that no school can rate every other fee barring one month tuition fee and they've to rate it on a monthly foundation. "Schools cannot demand fee for a quarter or three months."

"No transportation fee or annual charge should be charged."

He also said that all school should pay salary to the entire staff -- educating and non educating -- on time.

"If there is any fund crisis, they can take money from the parent organisation."

He also said that no pupil should be barred from on-line classes if they fail to pay fee.
