Last Year in Sep 2020, Delhi government schools expedited their efforts to help poor students arrange money to pay the CBSE Board fee. These schools roped in school committee members, teachers, alumni and outside NGOs to help raise funds for these poor kids. The Delhi Govt asked for CBSE Fee waiver but nothing was done as CBSE is a self-financing board. The expenditure over conducting exams has increased.
Our Trusts, Shri Sultan Chand Trust and Dr Usha Aggarwal Trusts helped 10 government schools and benefitted more than 200 students by paying their CBSE Board Fees for AY 2020-21.
|CBSE Board Fees for AY 2020-21||AY 2020-21|
|No. of Schools||10|
|No. of Class X Students||112|
|No. of Class XII Students||115|
|Total No. of Students||227|
|Total CBSE Board Fees paid||Rs 5,05,900|
Although, neither the CBSE Board exams were conducted nor there was any refund from the Board to schools.
For Academic Year 2021-22, the economic situation of the parents worsened due to 2nd wave of COVID. The Delhi government has waived off the CBSE Board Fees of Class X and XII for the students who have lost both of their parents to COVID. While, if there is a loss of single parent or loss of job, there is no waiver for such students. The schools had to again look for outside agencies for the payment of CBSE Board Fees.
Our Trusts, Sultan Chand Dropadi Devi Education Foundation and Shri Sultan Chand Trust helped 13 government school and benefitted more than 400 students by paying their CBSE Board Fees for AY 2021-22
|CBSE Board Fees for AY 2021-22||AY 2021-22|
|No. of Schools||13|
|No. of Class X Students||285|
|No. of Class XII Students||168|
|Total No. of Students||453|
|Total CBSE Board Fees Paid||Rs 9,33,900|
A partial waiver by the government could also help these students and schools. There are more than 300,000 such students and we have been able to help only 0.1% of such students.
