Parents of children studying in a private school on Big Bazaar Street staged a protest near the school on Saturday complaining that the management charges fees in excess of the fee determination committee’s recommendation.

Trimester fees

The school had reportedly asked for the trimester fees. The sources said that the parents said that never in the past the school management had asked for trimester fees. The demand for fees came in as a rude shock, they said and threatened to take up the issue with the fee committee. They later gave up the protest following assurances from the management that it was giving up the demand for the fees.
