There is no proposal under consideration of the HRD Ministry to bring in a regulation to check arbitrary fee hikes by private schools, Parliament was informed.

Union Minister of State for HRD Upendra Kushwaha shared the information in response to a written question in the Rajya Sabha.

"There is no proposal under consideration to bring a regulation to check arbitrary fee hikes by private schools," he said. 

Asked if an ordinance promulgated by the Uttar Pradesh government to check arbitrary fee hike by private schools prompted the Centre to bring in a similar regulation, the minister said, "The Uttar Pradesh government has stated that no such provisions exist in the Uttar Pradesh Self-Finance Independent School (Fixation of fees) Ordinance 2018."
