Private schools on govt land in Delhi can now submit fee hike proposals

Private schools operating on government land in Delhi can submit fee increase proposals for the 2022-2023 academic year but cannot increase fees without prior approval from the Department of Education (DOE).

“All pending fee increase proposals submitted by recognized unassisted private schools operating on land allocated by DDA (Delhi Development Authority) / other land ownership agencies… for the 2020-2021 session are rendered useless… these schools may submit an increase in The proposed fees, if any, for the 2022 session 23”, stated in the circular issued by Director of Education Himanshu Gupta.

Schools can submit fee increase proposals for the current academic year between June 12 and June 27.

After closing in 2020, the Ministry of Education directed schools not to collect any fees except for tuition fees, and prevented them from increasing fees. In May 2021, after a petition in the Delhi High Court, schools were allowed to charge annual fees and development fees as well, with a 15% concession.
