The private schools fee determination committee headed by Justice S.R. Singaravelu commenced fee fixation on Friday.

The committee’s decision will impact 12,536 schools comprising new schools and those whose three-year period has lapsed.

According to an official, the committee will hear 100 schools each day and aims to complete fee fixation for all schools by July 31. The fee will be fixed until 2015, the official said.

The committee will also take up complaints on collection of excess fees by schools.

“We want to modify certain principles and take into account several aspects, including government orders which were a culmination of the Sampath Committee recommendations,” the official said.
