The Supreme Court has clearly stated that schools cannot charge full fees during lockdown. In fact, a division bench of Justice AM Khanwilkar and Justice Dinesh Maheshwari stated in its judgment that private schools can charge annual fees prescribed under state law.
The court has also ordered that schools be reduced by 15 percent in the annual fees for the academic session 2020-21, as the children did not get the facilities that they get on going to school in this year.
