Concerns Raised Over Excessive Fees on Students and Parents in National Assembly

During today's (Chaitra 21, 2080) meeting of the National Assembly, MP Jeet Jung Basnet drew attention to the excessive fees charged by schools to students and parents, leading to government concern.

He highlighted coercive practices such as compulsory purchases of uniforms and books, examination fees, and unnecessary fees in the name of annual charges, indicating the lack of government control.

Despite private schools operating in the sector facing criticism for imposing financial burdens on parents and students, he accused them of neglecting the consensus.

MP Tulasa Kumari Dahal emphasized the need for the government to pay attention to the plight of self-employed entrepreneurs and workers in urban areas. Kathmandu Metropolitan City has been accused of excessive taxation, hindering professions, and exacerbating problem-solving efforts.

MP Padam Bahadur Parajuli mentioned the spread of disorder in the educational sector under the guise of the student scholarship campaign, urging the inclusion of children from the Himalayan, hilly, and Terai regions in the mainstream flow.
