The economic distress that followed the pandemic and the subsequent lockdown has left several parents struggling to pay tuition fees
Low-Cost Schools Fear Closure And Dropouts As Parents Are Unable To Pay Fees

Due to the COVID-enforced shutdown, several low-cost private schools in Delhi fear closure, as teachers go unpaid and their rent piles on. Madhuri Aggarwal who runs a "no-profit-no-loss" model primary school for children of migrant labourers in Pochanpur, charging a mere 600 per month for tuition fees, hasn't been able to meet the rent amount since April. School owners remain unsure if they can count on things to get better with time.
