SAINIK SCHOOLS SOCIETY RULES & REGULATIONS ON FEE, DIET CHARGES, OTHER EXPENSES, SCHOLARSHIP AND WITHDRAWAL OF CADET
WITHDRAWAL ON NON-PAYMENT OF FEES
3.34 All fee is payable in advance and can be paid for a year or a quarter in advance. Payment should be made atleast half yearly and payable before the beginning of the half year. If dues are not received by the first day of the month by which they are to be paid, a reminder will be sent informing the parent/guardian that “if the amount due is not paid by the 15th of the month and in case of default, the student will be struck off the rolls of the school and sent home”. After waiting for fifteen days, the cadet may be sent home at the parent’s cost and the expenditure will be deducted from the caution money. The school leaving / transfer certificate will, however, not be issued until all dues are cleared to the school and the scholarship money, if any, enjoyed by the student, is refunded. In case of repeated defaults of this nature in payment of fees by the parent/guardian, it will not be obligatory for the school to send a reminder and the last such reminder will contain a suitable warning to this effect.
WITHDRAWAL BY PARENTS/GUARDIANS
3.35 All boys are admitted to the school on the understanding that they will remain in the school for the entire course. In case any of the parent wants to withdraw his son/daughter on any account including revision of fees/scholarship they must give the notice of withdrawal in writing to the Principal at least two months before the commencement of the following term. Failure to give this notice will entail forfeiture of caution money. Parents of cadets who are in receipt of scholarships can withdraw them only after repayment of the total amount of scholarship enjoyed by the cadets.
POCKET MONEY AND INCIDENTIAL CHARGES
4.16 Apart from school fees and clothing charges mentioned earlier, each parent / guardian is required to deposit at the beginning of every academic year a sum of Rs.1,500/- towards pocket money and Rs.1,500/- towards incidental charges in respect of his ward. Parents/guardians will also be required to pay additional amounts towards fees/expenses for the All India Secondary School, Senior School Certificate and the NDA examinations. Besides the above, if any additional money is required for expenses not anticipated and catered for, it shall be paid by the parents. Amounts remaining unspent out of the pocket money and other specific charges will be carried forward in the boy’s account as credit balance for the following year. The parents will be asked to remit the amounts by which this balance falls short of the total amount payable.
PAYMENT OF FEES BY INSTALMENTS
4.17 Parents are permitted to pay fees in half yearly instalments. Those paying fee in half yearly instalment will pay Rs.40,030/- at the beginning of each term.
PROCEDURE FOR CHARGING FEES
4.19 The school academic year will be divided into two equal terms for the purpose of fees. The fees and scholarships will be charged for full term even if the candidate joins late in a term. However, a rebate of diet charges will be admissible in cases where a child has been admitted 10 days later or more. This rule will be applicable to both full fee paying students and to scholarship holders. In case a cadet is withdrawn by the parent voluntarily mid-term the fees will be charged up to the end of the month succeeding the month of withdrawal. Parents withdrawing their son/daughter after 30th September of a year should pay fees for that full academic session.
4.20 Clothing charges collected from cadets will form a part of the schools’ revenue and unspent portion of the clothing charges, if any, will not be refunded to any student on withdrawal. The clothing charges do not represent the cost of clothing issued. They are merely the fees for use of school clothing. However, a blazer with crested pocket may be allowed to be taken away by the cadets while leaving the school on successful completion of their studies.
4.21 It is not possible for Sainik Schools to meet all the requirement of clothing from the clothing money charged. A part of the burden will, therefore, have to be borne by parents. In any case, it will be the responsibility of the parents/guardians to equip their children/wards initially with certain clothing, linen and other items of equipment. The School will include in the school prospectus the scale of clothing items to be provided initially by parents/guardians.
