The Jammu and Kashmir High Court has put on hold the order of Fee Fixation Regulation Committee (FFRC) that asked to slash the monthly fee of the Foundation World School, Mamath-Humhama to 50 percent.

In an order passed through ‘virtual mode’ by Justice Vinod Chatterji Koul, the HC has directed the respondents to file response within six weeks.

“Until further orders of this Court, effect and operation of the impugned order dated 18.03.2021 passed by the Fee Fixation Regulation Committee shall remain in abeyance,” the court order issued on Friday said.

Acting on complaints from parents, the FFRC had in March ordered a 50 percent reduction in the monthly fee of two top private Valley-based schools – Foundation World School and Birla Open Minds International School, Pampore.
