FFRC initiates action against private school for demanding illegal admission fees

Srinagar, April 02, 2024: The Fee Fixation and Regulation Committee (FFRC) has initiated action against the management of Kashmir Haward School in Srinagar following allegations that the school demanded an illegal admission fee.

The school is accused of demanding an admission fee of Rs 85,000, a practice prohibited by law. The allegations were highlighted in a video made by a lady named Sana.

Justice Sunil Hali, the Chairperson of the FFRC, emphasized that charging admission fees without FFRC approval is strictly prohibited, with violators facing legal consequences. The FFRC’s investigation has revealed that the school failed to submit the necessary fee regulation documentation for the academic session 2024-25 by the deadline of December 31, 2023.

The Chairman/Principal of Kashmir Haward School has been summoned to appear before the FFRC office in Hyderpora on April 3, 2024 to address the allegations and regulatory violations. They have been directed to provide all pertinent information for a thorough examination of the matter.

Justice Sunil Hali cautioned the school that non-compliance with this directive could lead to further actions, including an investigative inquiry, fee collection suspension, and potential recommendations for the school’s recognition suspension by the government.

The Chairperson has reaffirmed the FFRC’s commitment to upholding regulatory standards and ensuring compliance in Private educational institutions to protect the interests of students and families
