Music Pandit School is dedicated to maintaining careful management of its finances. We have adopted the below policies covering the payment of fees and other related financial issues. We appreciate parents’ cooperation in assisting the music school in meeting its financial obligations in a timely manner.
The objective of this policy is to ensure there is consistency in terms of approach and methodology. It is imperative that a standard process exists and that all involved are aware of this.
Payment of Fees
Parents agree to pay the fees applicable to each course directly to the school through Razorpay (our online payment gateway partner) – or any such payment gateway partner we integrate with us in the future.
Fees for each term are due and payable before the commencement of the classes to which they relate. If an item on the fees invoice is under query, the ‘undisputed’ balance of that fees invoice must be paid.
For the online term since 2019, cash payments are no longer accepted at Music Pandit school to pay course fees. Accepted payment methods for fees will now include online bank transfer or payment via debit/credit card, and UPI.
We will send invoices and payment reminders, but it is the family’s responsibility to be aware of all due dates.
Statements are usually sent out monthly and must be checked for discrepancies. Queries should be lodged within 30 days, otherwise, information appearing on statements will be deemed correct.
Any agreements (payment plans) will be confirmed in writing by both parties.
For any reasonable case, you can contact Music Pandit School admin.
Music Pandit reserves the right to submit or cancel student account refunds at any time and without notice to the student.
Fees are reviewed annually and are subject to increase from time to time.
Parents will receive notifications before the end of the existing term if there are any changes in the fee structure.
Information About Fees
All students are responsible for tuition and fees associated with their registered courses. Failure to attend or properly withdraw does not release the student from this financial obligation.
The parents also consent to the School informing any other school or educational establishment to which the pupil is to be transferred if any Fees of this School are unpaid.
Invoices are usually sent out after the payment of the fees. They must be checked for any discrepancies. Queries need to be lodged within 30 days, otherwise, information appearing on statements will be deemed correct.
Appropriate due diligence checks on payments made to the school will be made at periodic intervals.
Non-Official Activities – In addition to official school activities, Music Pandit through its affiliation allows students to take up certification exams from international music institutes such as Trinity College of Music, London | Rockschool, UK. The charges for these exams are not covered by school fees and require additional payment from the parents of participating pupils. Non-official activities can include any paid special workshop or special performance event.
Parents agree to these costs via specific notifications and/or general communication stating the reason for these activities as and when they occur.
The school reserves the right to review any involvement in school activities which are considered non-official or not part of the formal curriculum.
Parents would be required to pay Music Pandit to attend any special workshop or special performance event that is outside of the course activities. Music Pandit will provide notifications and/or general communication stating the schedule for these activities and how students can secure a seat for them.
The parents shall indemnify the School against all losses, expenses (including legal expenses) and interest suffered or incurred by the School if the School is required to repay all or part of any sum paid to it by a third-party credit provider on behalf of the Parents.
In the event that the School instructs its attorneys to take legal steps to enforce any of the School’s rights, the Parents will become liable for and shall pay such collection charges and any legal costs on an attorney and client scale, which shall be lawfully charged by its attorneys.
