Gurgaon: The state government’s circular to all private and government schools to make it compulsory for every student to deposit sports funds has drawn flak. Moreover, schools of some districts have also been instructed to deposit the funds for the last 5 years, even though no sports activity took place in schools for two years during the pandemic.
Now, the schools have decided to boycott all district level sports activities from Monday.
Haryana Progressive School Conference (HPSC), an association of more than 500 affiliated private schools, including over 250 schools in Gurgaon and Faridabad, said that there were loopholes in the sports policy of the government due to which students of private schools were unable to participate in sports organised by the government.
According to the letter issued by the department, every student has to deposit the sports fund even though not all of them take part in the sports championships and competitions held by the government.
The schools have claimed that the fee that the department is charging from every student was arbitrary and unjustified. Schools generally do not charge sports fee from the students, except a minor fee for equipment maintenance in some schools.
An official from the secondary education department said that they have issued the circular to schools because they felt it was necessary for them to contribute in the maintenance, when they too were equally taking part in state-held competitions.
