Thiruvananthapuram: State Commission for the Protection of Child Rights has ordered educational institutions in the state to provide 25 percentage fee reduction this year due to the wake of the Covid epidemic. The commission took the action on a complaint filed by a parent of Manjeri ACE public school student.
The commission chaired by KV Manojkumar said that the order will be applicable to all educational institutions including public schools, CBSE and ICSE schools.
Many educational institutions have voluntarily granted fee reduction while some schools denied education due to non-payment of fees. The order is not applicable to schools that already offered a fee reduction.
