JAMMU: A meeting of all district heads of J&K Private Schools Association Jammu (JKPSA) was held on Sunday under chairmanship of Kamal Gupta President JKPSA to take cognizance of successive orders No. 44-FFRC and 45-FFRC of 2021, dated February 18, 2021 issued by Justice (Retd) Muzaffar Hussain Attar, Chairperson, Fee Fixation & Regulation Committee (FFRC) of Private Schools.During the meeting, organised by Deepak Handa (President Jammu Urban), the member condemned irrational attitude of officers viz B K Singh (Administrative Secretary, School Education Department), Anuradha Gupta (Director School Education) and Manisha Sarin (Secretary JKBOSE) in presence of whom order no. 01-FFC of 2019 dated January 28, 2019, issued by former Chairman FFC (Retd) Justice Hakim Imtiyaz Hussain, was revoked after proper consultations with all the stakeholders.The General Secretary JKPSA Ajay Gupta said that Chairperson FFRC has opened one more door for corruption. “On the one hand, Government of India has approved investment package for UT of J&K with proposal to provide direct and indirect employment to around 5 lakh people while on the other hand, till date, Government has no policy and frame work for all those who are self-employed since long. Restricting private schools to enhance fee, after a gap of 2 years at the rate of 6% after COVID-19, will surely hamper overall functioning and growth of all private unaided schools,” he added.Kamal Gupta demanded immediate review / withdrawal of new orders and restoration of earlier order no. 01 FFC of 2019 dated January 28, 2019, so that school management can pay increments to their teaching & non-teaching staff. He also demanded inclusion of opinion of all stakeholders while framing any policy regarding regulation of fee of Private Schools. He further demanded that before regulating/ fixing/ approving fee structure, the Government must keep in mind inflation and frequent change in price index.The members unanimously demanded intervention of Lt Governor in the matter to save the venture from harassment and exploitation, as private schools were worst sufferers during pandemic period and even after unlock.Those who spoke during the meeting included Rameshwar Mengi (Vice President JKPSA), Sanjeev Luthra, Ajay Singh, Ram Parkash, Naresh Kumar, Lal Chand , Jatinder Heera and Ankush Verma.
