The Times of India reports: CBSE amends bylaws to waive fees for girl child
So it is finally official now. Bylaws have been amended. No debate. No scope for debate. It now has to be followed.
Why are our rulers so insensitive? The silence of CBSE schools is worrying.
There are some aspects of this move quite amusing!
* If the schools so wish, they can waive the transportation and meal charges as well. [Right! And if they want they can pay the students an extra stipend as well, buy them all a bicyle, pay for the weekend movies and free crackers for Diwali!]
* Schools affiliated to CBSE have the option of implementing this decision with immediate effect or from the next academic session beginning April 2006. [And, if the schools want, they can retrospectively reimburse the fees paid by such single girl children over the last 5 years?]
