CABE Proposes Schools Charging Capitation Fees To Be FinedSchools charging capitation fee, refusing admission to children, making false claims through advertisements could be liable to punishment up to Rs.10 Lakhs. Prompted by public concern against unfair practices followed by schools, the Centre has piloted a legislation to prevent these malpractices.

The bill will be considered by the Central Advisory Board of Education (CABE) in a meeting on Thursday. The Prohibition of Unfair Practices in Schools bill aims to bring effective deterrent action. The bill has been drafted by CABE’S sub-committee headed by former minister of state of HRD D Purandeswari. If the bill is cleared, schools will be liable for heavy financial penalty to the tune of Rs.10 Lakhs for denying a child admission without specified merit for selection of students, prohibits demanding donation or capitation fee, insisting a child buy uniform or books from a particular shop, subjecting students to mental harassment or physical punishment, or issuing misleading advertisements that make false claims.

The bill requires establishment of a grievance redressal authority that will be set up by the state government.
