This had forced the Government to do the balancing act with both the warring faction stuck to their stand.

Addressing a news conference here yesterday, Primary and Secondary Education Minister S. Suresh Kumar said if parents have already paid the full fees, then the School Managements would have to adjust the amount in the fee paid for the next academic year.
