Chandigarh, March 22

The Punjab and Haryana High Court has made it clear interim arrangements made by the Supreme Court on collection of school fee would be applicable to Punjab and Haryana as well.

“It is ordered that the interim arrangements made by the Supreme Court vide its order dated February 8 passed in SLP titled as ‘Gandhi Sewa Sadan Rajsmand Vs. State of Rajasthan’ shall apply and parties shall abide thereby till the matter is finally decided by the Supreme Court,” the Bench of Chief Justice Ravi Shanker Jha and Justice Arun Palli ruled, while taking up an appeal and related matters.

Information suggests the apex court had allowed private unaided schools in Rajasthan to collect 100 per cent school fee amid the Covid-19 pandemic through six monthly instalments from March 5, 2021.

The Bench, at the very onset, was told the Supreme Court after staying the operation of the orders passed by the High Court on October 1, 2020, and October 9, 2020, had directed the interim arrangements made by it in order dated February 8 would apply to Punjab as well.

“It would be just and appropriate if the same arrangements that have been ordered by the Supreme Court are made operative in the present cases as well. In these circumstances, all the previous orders passed by this court are modified in terms and in view of the orders passed by the Supreme Court…,” the Bench asserted. — TNS
