Taking note of complaints regarding payment of partial salaries by private educational institutions despite charging full fee from students, the Himachal Pradesh Private Educational Institutions Regulatory Commission (HPPEIRC) has directed them to give details of courses offered, number of students enrolled and fee charged.

Sources say courses are being offered without approval and without furnishing complete details of students enrolled and fee charged. The commission had, on August 20 last year, written to the institutions to submit complete details for the period 2013-14 to 2019-20, but most of them failed to respond.

A teacher at a nursing college alleged that some private institutions were exploiting the faculty members by not paying them their dues citing pandemic even as they are charging full course fee from students.

Maj Gen Atul Kaushik (retd), Chairman, HPPEIRC, has sent notices to the erring institutions. “There are complaints that private institutions are charging full fee from students, but have imposed a pay cut and reduced the staff strength,” he said.
