Before the UP assembly elections, the Yogi government has announced another big relief in the field of education. The government has decided not to increase school fees this year as well. This decision of the Yogi government will help a lot for the parents who are facing a financial crisis due to Corona. This is the third year in the state when there has been no increase in school fees.
Additional Chief Secretary, Secondary Education, Aradhana Shukla has issued orders not to increase the fees. It has been made clear by the administration that fees will not be increased in all board schools even in the new academic session 2022-23. This decision will apply to all the boards like UP Board, CBSE and CISCE. This is a good decision taken by the Yogi government in Uttar Pradesh.
The state government argues that due to Corona, the financial condition of the parents is not very good. In such a situation, they cannot be further burdened with arbitrary fees. For this reason, the government itself has banned it by showing strictness.
It has been seen even before that in violation of the order of the government, many schools tried to increase the fees arbitrarily, on which the government took immediate action. This time also the same rule will be applicable. If any school tries to increase the fees by violating the rules, then strict action will be taken against them. According to the order, only approved fees will be taken from the parents. Apart from this, no additional fee will be charged.
Here, because of the increasing cases of corona in Uttar Pradesh, orders have been issued to close all the universities and degree colleges of the state from Monday to January 16. Because of the increasing threat of Corona and Omicron, the administration has taken this decision.
