More than 500 parents of children studying at Delhi Public School Rohini have signed a letter to the director of education, asking them to ensure that the school adheres to its guidelines.
This comes just over a week after the Directorate of Education (DoE) suspended DPS Rohini’s recognition for “profiteering, commercialization, capitulation and exploitation of parents” by charging “unjustified fees”. In its order, the DoE had written that it took this step after complaints from parents that the school allegedly charged increased school fees in 2021-2022 and increased delinquent payments in 2020-2021, and failed to provide a 15% deduction on the annual school fees. fees as directed by the Delhi High Court in May 2021.
The order states that the school’s accreditation is suspended “unless the school corrects the deficiencies or deficiencies.” On Wednesday, a bunch of parents gathered outside the school to conduct a “silent signature campaign” to urge the school to comply with the DoE’s order for failing to act on government guidelines.
“We welcome your order of 5.12.2022 and thank you for your support. It is important to establish the law of the land. It also sends a strong message to young minds that truth and law are supreme and not ‘might is right’,” the letter to the DoE read.

“We request that you ensure that the school complies with all rules and regulations and complies with the laws of the land. We also request that you protect us from any coercive action taken by the school administration against our children until the case is fully resolved,” it added.
