Renters are also asked not to take rents for March, April and May.  If anyone violates the rule, strict actions would be taken including a police complaint.

The Telangana CM said, “The owners should give deferment to the renters and they should not collect any interest. If anyone pressurises then the renters can call the police.”

Private schools are also not allowed to take fees or increase fees for the academic year, 2020-2021 and are only allowed to collect tuition fees.
