DEO writes to school principals over fee waiver
While the UT education department had announced on July 26 that annual and monthly fees of government school students of Classes 9 and 10 had been waived off, many parents have already paid the fee for April to July session.
Now the UT district education officer (DEO) has written to all government school heads to adjust the 50% fee that was already paid in the coming months in compliance with the July order.
