    Schools in Hyderabad are increasing fees for the upcoming academic year, with some parents reporting hikes of 15 to 20 percent. Average fees for Class 1 in mid-range schools range from Rs 60,000 to Rs 80,000 per year, while corporate schools charge from Rs 1 lakh to Rs 3 lakh annually.

    One parent, Naresh, shared his shock at a Rs 1 lakh increase in fees for his younger son compared to what he paid for his elder son two years ago. The school cited added facilities like furniture and a Digi class as reasons for the hike. However, they do not provide official fee receipts, instead writing fees on a piece of paper with a school stamp.

    Another parent, Sravanti, expressed concerns about the affordability of quality education for middle-class families. She noted a 20 percent increase in fees for her daughter’s school in RK Puram from last year to this year. She suggested that schools offer discounts to high-achieving students to help ease the financial burden on families.

    Rayees Khan, a parent of a Class 9 student in Abids, called for mechanisms to control annual fee hikes. He highlighted the additional costs for books, uniforms, and transportation that add to the financial strain on families. Despite a Rs 1 lakh increase in fees over the last three years, he questioned the quality of education provided by the school.
