Lucknow: Private Schools in Uttar Pradesh would cease to be money minting ventures as the state government has now prohibited them from charging registration, building and capitation fees.

In order to make school education affordable and regulating the private schools, the state government has come with new sets of conditions and guidelines for giving recognition to public schools.

As per the new guidelines, the private schools would have to calculate the tuition fee and dearness allowance in a way that the amount charged does not exceed the limit that would be enough to pay the salaries of teacher, one clerk and a fourth-grade employee and contribute in the provident fund of the above stated employees.

It has been also been decided that the annual income of the school must not exceed 20 percent of the total accrued fee after clearing all dues of its employees.

The new guidelines also provide that schools are not permitted to hike tuition fee before three years. Moreover, the hike in tuition fees would not exceed 10 percent. The new guidelines also take care of the cut being paid in purchase of books and stationary in private schools.
