The Delhi High Court has dismissed a petition seeking complete exemption from payment of any fee, including tuition fee, to schools during the period of lockdown. (Naresh Kumar vs DoE)

Rejecting the Petitioner's stance that no tuition fee could be charged as the schools are "closed", the Court has stated,

..we cannot agree that, during the period of lockdown, or during the period when online education is being provided by the schools, and availed of, by students, tuition fees should be exempted. So long as schools are disseminating education online, they are certainly entitled to charge tuition fees.
