    Private school managements in Hyderabad are concerned about the increasing school fees in the city. They are urging the Telangana government to implement a slab system for fee hikes, stating that only 10% of tuition fees are raised each year.

    Administrators of private schools defend the fee hikes, saying they are necessary due to rising market rates for teacher salaries. They claim that most schools have increased fees by 8%-10% this year to cover expenses like building rent, electricity charges, and water charges.
