School committee meets with factual authorities | Kochi News

KOCHI: The Administrative Committee of FACT Township Secondary School, Eloor, which is facing the threat of imminent closure following an eviction notice issued by the management of Fertilizers and Chemicals Travancore Ltd (FACT) regarding alleged rental fees, tries to prevent the eviction by holding a discussion with the authorities and settling some of the arrears.
Chairman of Greater Cochin Development Authority (GCDA), K Chandran Pillai, who is one of the patrons of the school, met with the Chairman and CEO of FACT on Monday and discussed the possible measure to resolve the crisis.
Pillai told TOI that the incidents that led to the school controversy were unfortunate and that FACT officials and school management are trying to talk about it and find a solution.
“We are trying to clear the amounts due from the lease as much as possible and to renew the contract with FACT. We hope it will be resolved soon so the school does not have to be closed,” Pillai said.
Meanwhile, FACT issued another notice on Monday to members of the office of the FACT Employees Educational Services Society which operates the school.
The notice, issued by the company’s real estate agent, reiterated their position mentioned in public notice boards and asked them to leave the school premises by the end of the current school year. Separately, a complaint was lodged at Eloor Police Station by FACT authorities after one of the boards installed on Friday was found damaged and dismantled on Sunday.
