CHANDIGARH: Independent Schools Association and two other schools have challanged the UT administration order of May 22 to unaided private schools to upload balance sheets on their websites and the constitution of Fee Regulatory Authority in the Punjab and Haryana high court.
The petition will come up for hearing on Thursday.
The two schools are Saint Soldier International School and Saupins Education Foundation.
In 2016, the Punjab government had enacted Punjab Regulation of Fee of Unaided Educational Institutions Act which authorised the constitution of a regulatory body for checking the fee of unaided educational institutions in the state. Like all other acts, this Act was also extended to Chandigarh.
In 2018, a regulatory body was established in Chandigarh as per the Act.
