Nurpur, October 11

The Kangra district private schools’ association (affiliated with the HP Board of School Education) has taken strong exception to the government authorities’ pressure on them to clear outstanding dues related to private buses stranded on the school premises in the wake of the pandemic since March 2020.

Jaswant Dhadwal, president of the association, who convened a meeting of the private school owners at Fatehpur in Kangra district today, said it was irrational to ask owners to clear dues like road, token and passenger taxes and insurance of idle school buses. He said the association would move the High Court against the move. He lamented that private school owners had met the Chief Minister and Transport Minister several times to request waiver of these taxes, but had got only hollow assurances time and again.

He underlined the need to grant permission of teaching CBSE or ICSE level syllabus from Class I to VII to strengthen the competitive spirit among pupils.
