In Dehradun private CBSE school, students are allegedly asked to pay a fine of Rs 100. Students who didn’t attend the 100th episode of PM Narendra Modi’s Mann ki Baat or left it midway are asked to do so.

Parents complained regarding this and consequently, the education department sent a notice to the school. However, the school refused the allegation and the senior coordinator said’ “No fines have been demanded. But we issue notice to maintain discipline in school.”

Further, the President of the National Association for Parents and Students Rights, Arif Khan claimed, “Several education institutions asked students to come on Sunday to collectively watch the episode and also there was an option to join the episode online.”

“After that, the school sent a notice on social media groups and asked to pay a fine. The message reads that those who didn’t attend the screening have to pay a penalty of Rs 100,” he added.

Khan also said that private institutions often play poor tactics to make money and force parents and children. Further, chief education officer Pradeep Kumar Rawat said, “We have started an inquiry against the school and also sent them a notice. We have given them three days to explain their deed. And if they don’t then strict action will be taken.”

Education department officials instructed that if a school has received a fine or penalties from any student then it should be returned. It is completely illegal to impose financial burdens on parents. No private school can indulge in such activities or behaviour.
