Neemuch, MP, Oct 26 (UNI) In order to check private schools from charging exhorbitant fees, the Madhya Pradesh government will introduce grading system and fix the maximum fees on the basis of available facilities and academic level.
''Several complaints had been received about exhorbitant fees levied by private educational institutions,'' State's Higher Education and School Education Minister Lakshman Singh Gaud told UNI here.
He said imposing uniform fee structure was not justified in all private educational institutions. After a survey, all schools would be categorised in A, B and C grade and fees decided accordingly.
While justifying levying fees for 12-months in a year, Mr Gaud said this system was not improper as the school management had to pay salary and bear other establishment expenditure round the year.
''The state government has also fixed the time limit for settling pension cases and withdrawal from provident fund'', Mr Gaud said, adding necessary steps would be taken to ensure promotion and salary increment in Schools and Higher Education Departments.
About large number of vacant posts of various ranks in state's government colleges and schools, Mr Gaud said a request had been made to Public Service Commission to complete the formalities in three months and fill up vacant seats.
