High Court orders probe into alleged financial irregularities in Government aided schools


Himachal Pradesh High Court on Thursday ordered probe into violation of prescribed fee and payment of  salary at notified rates by the State Government aided educational institutions while hearing a PIL over this issue. The division bench of High court comprising of Chief Justice Mr. Kurian Joseph and Justice Mr. Dharam Chand Chaudhary passed this order while hearing the PIL filed before the court.

The order said “It has come to the notice of the Court that in some of the 95 percent grant-in-aid Schools, the management is allegedly maintaining two sets of registers-both in the case of fee to be collected from the students and also in the matter of payment of salary to the teachers.” “Under the 95 percent grant-in-aid scheme, the schools are bound to follow the fee as prescribed by the govt.  and pay salary at notified rates.

The allegation is that it is done only in records.” The court said that, “In larger public interest, we are of the view that the Education  Secretary of the Government of Himachal Pradesh should conduct a discrete inquiry immediately as to the factual situation in all the 95 percent  grant-in-aid schools both in the matter of collection of fee from students and in the matter of payment to teachers. “However court left on the Education Secretary  to constitute a team and seek the assistance of Police and Vigilance department, if required.

After conducting such inquiry, a report should be submitted to the Court within ten days as the court fixed next date of hearing for April 30.
