Alirajpur (Madhya Pradesh): Collector Dr Abhay Arvind Bedekar, on Saturday, took punitive action against four private schools in Alirajpur district headquarters, imposing a fine of Rs 50,000 each on them. The schools, including Swami Vivekananda Vidyapeeth, Don Bosco Academy, Talent Public School and Maa Parvati Memorial School, were found to be violating government instructions and engaging in arbitrary practices.

The schools were accused of pressuring parents to buy textbooks and school uniforms from the same place. The collector has instructed the school operators to deposit the fine amount within 7 days, failing which their recognition will be cancelled. This is the biggest action taken so far in the district against the arbitrariness of private schools.

The collector has sent a strong message that if such practices continue, stricter action will be taken. Parents are happy with the collector's decision. Collector Bedekar warned that if further complaints are received from any private school, a fine of up to Rs 2 lakh will be imposed on them. This move is expected to bring much-needed accountability to the private education sector in the district.
