Maharashtra Legislative Assembly on Wedenesday unanimously passed the school fees regulation bill, which aims to curb the commercialisation of education and profiteering by educational institutions.

The bill, approved by the 27-member joint legislative committee, was tabled last week, and passed unanimously on Wednesday.

The seemingly arbitrary fee hikes by private schools, and protests by parents prompted the government to come out with the bill.

The bill will come up for discussion in the Legislative Council tomorrow.
