 The High Court on Monday directed the government counsel to provide details of notification issued on January 7, 2014, by the government on fee structure for aided and non-aided schools.

Hearing a petition against a private school which allegedly was fleecing parents in the guise of different uniforms, Justice Ananda Byrareddy directed the government counsel to provide the details.  

The petitioners, nine students from Apollo Public School near Hegganahalli Circle, Sunkadakatte, filed a petition seeking to implement the notification about aided and unaided school fee structure.  

The school directed the students to wear school uniform worth Rs 1,500, separate tuition class uniform worth Rs 1,000 and night dress worth Rs 1,800.  

The school has also made it mandatory for students to bring food in a hot box worth Rs 500 provided by the school.
