Amritsar, April 7

A section of the parents of a private school, situated in Ajnala sub-division are up in arms against the management for withholding the result of their wards for want of submitting pending fee.

They filed a written complaint against the school management to SDM, Ajnala. Seeking intervention of the administration, they sought relevant action against the school.

In the complaint, they claimed that in no condition, the school administration can stop further education of the students and withhold results. They contested that the fee could be taken in instalments. However, they stated that the said school asked for clearance of all pending dues. In order to exert pressure on the students some of their examinations were held in quick succession.

When contacted, MD of the School, Raghbir Singh, said, "Affiliated to the CBSE, the school has been running here since 2005. We waived off the annual charges for the last academic session due to the Covid-induced economic difficulties. Yet, the parents came in group and misbehaved with staff and resorted to jostling with them." He claimed to

possess the CCTV footage of the incident and added that barring board classes all

other examinations were conducted and no student was stopped from appearing for the exams.

Meanwhile, the Ajnala administration approached the school management to submit their reply to the allegations leveled by a section of parents. The school management is yet to give their response.
