The Calcutta High Court on Tuesday issued various interim directions regarding the access to online classes conducted by private unaided schools and the fee payment for the same in the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown (Vineet Ruia v. State of West Bengal & Ors).

Inter alia, the 112 private, unaided schools in the matter were directed to unconditionally allow students access to online classes until August 15.

The Court has also ordered that no student can be barred from attending online examinations until August 15. Further, it has been directed that dues payable by students until July 31 would have to be cleared to the extent of 80% by August 15.
