Modern School, Ryan International and Ramagya School were slapped a penalty of Rs 50,000 each, while Billabong School was penalised Rs 25,000 by the committee, an administration spokesperson said.
Books for Billabong franchise schools were not available anywhere in the market and were being exclusively sold by them, in violation of the law, the spokesperson said.
Ryan School in Noida Extension did not provide details sought related to fees structure despite multiple notices and hence attracted the action, the official said.

(New Delhi)Fee Hike Only for New Students of M. Tech in IITs :HRD
The Ministry of Human Resource Developments has issued a clarification regarding the news relating to the hike in the fee of M. Tech programme in IITs.
There is no fee hike for the existing students.
For new admissions, hike will be gradual over a period of three years or more, as will be decided by the respective Board of Governors of IITs.
Needy students will be provided necessary financial support.
All concessions and scholarships for SC/ST/OBC and others will continue without change.
The fee hike will discourage non-serious students, who after a few months of stay in IITs, leave the programme midway to take up employment or to prepare for competitive exams.
This drop out in the middle of the programme leads to wastage of coveted seats on the one hand and denies opportunity to other serious and meritorious students, on the other.
IITs will offer only those programmes that have demand in the market. This will ensure immediate placement after completion of the course.
Good and deserving students will be provided Teaching Assistantship/Scholarship.
The fee for the M.Tech. programmes in IITs have not been revised for a long time whereas the cost per student has gone up substantially.
The Ministry has assured to all future students who will come to study at IITs that no student will be deprived of opportunity for education because of weak financial condition.
