Date for Submission of plaints by parents advanced to July 2. A day after issuing letters to parents, asking them to file paper-based individual complaints along with affidavit within a day, the UT education department has extended the date for submission of complaints to July 2.
The UT education department had sent letters to parents on Wednesday and many did not receive it even till Thursday. Parents have even criticized the department’s one-day deadline and said the department has given multiple deadlines to schools to act on the directives. The department has asked parents to file individual complaints. Earlier, parents had filed complaints against schools through emails and in groups.
The complaints have been filed to the fee regulatory committee formed under the Punjab Regulation of Fee of Unaided Educational Institutions Act, 2016, as extended to UT Chandigarh in 2018, after schools continued to charge fees from parents without disclosing their financial statements on their websites.
Nitin Goyal, President, Chandigarh Parents’ Association, Said:
“The education department continues with its goof-ups. Yesterday, they gave us one-day deadline and today they have extended it by a week. They took over a month to ask for affidavits after receiving these original complaints. They had mentioned in June 24 letters that they will not consider complaints received after June 25, which is insane. They can give repeated extensions to schools to comply with the directives. However, they want parents to follow one-day deadline.” “Even individual complaints, which were submitted with signed affidavits, are kept pending for over a year, and parents are being asked to submit fresh complaints with affidavits in one day,” he added.
In an email sent to parents on Thursday, the education department stated that, “In continuation of this mail dated June 24, 2020, time limit for submission of reply or documents has been extended to July 2.”
