There is news of relief for the parents today. The state cabinet meeting has decided to waive only 25 per cent fee in private schools in the state. Gujarat school administrators are ready for only 25 per cent fee waiver and no fee for other activities. This decision will apply to all boards, including Gujarat, i.e. CBSE.

The controversy over school fee waivers has been raging for the past three months. A meeting was held on September 24 between the private school administrators and the CM on the matter. The school administrators agreed to waive the 25 per cent fee. The principals of most of the schools affiliated to the Gujarat Board agreed with the Chief Minister's decision. However, no decision has been taken on whether to grant this fee waiver till the schools are closed or continue even after the schools are reopened.

The government had offered to waive 25 per cent of the students ’fees, which the administrators refused.
