    It is atrocious
    To make forward community students to pay such exhorbirant fees
    Govt recently made a law to the effect that general categories who are belong to economically weaker section and underprivileged class will be
    Very much affected by this steep
    Increase some parents may not pay this increased fee resulting in drop out of school which will add the number of
    Uneducated and unschooled population in the country
    B j p is doing like this in order to increase vote bank
    School authorities are already collecting capitation fees starting from LKG to
    Plus 2 why do they increase the existing
    Fees. Educational institution is already enjoying the benefits of non profits
    Meaning they need not pay income tax
    But most of the schools are managed by trusts to defraud the govt for evading tax
    Trustees are eating money there is
    No govt audit
    Horrible
    Only politicians sons daughters alone can afford education in India and abroad
