Elated with the successful implementation of the NCERT prescribed books in CBSE schools, the Uttarakhand schools education department is contemplating enforcing the same in the ICSE and ISCE-run board private schools.
Meanwhile the ICSE schools were exempted from the government’s NCERT books directives. However, Uttarakhand education minister Arvind Pandey said he would bring a proposal in the Cabinet for approval in this regard. There are around 150 private ICSE schools in Dehradun and the maximum schools are in Dehradun.
To ensure the schools do not announce arbitrary fee hike education department has also started working on the Fee Regulation Act for schools.
Meanwhile, in another instance relating to the SGRR Medical College that had hiked fee for medical students of MBBS and MD course (batch- 2016-2017), the Fee Fixation Committee has slapped a fine of Rs 10 lakh per student on the institution.
