Punjab approves educational fee regulator
To prevent private institutions from charging excessive fee from students, the Punjab government on Monday decided to set up a regulatory body to keep a check on them.

A Punjab government spokesman said that the new regulator was being set up to rationalize and regulate the fee structure in unaided educational institutions across the state.

The decision was taken in the cabinet meeting here chaired by chief minister Parkash Singh Badal.

The Punjab and Haryana high court had recently said that private institutions could not be allowed to charge fees from students arbitrarily.
