New Delhi, Nov 22 (UNI) The Delhi High Court today reserved its orders on a petition, filed by a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) Social Jurist, seeking directions to the Delhi government to curb the menace of unauthorised schools, mushrooming in the capital.

A bench comprising Chief Justice M K Sharma and Justice Sanjiv Khanna, after hearing arguments of the petitioner Ashok Aggarwal, who had sought directions to be passed to Delhi government to monitor the unauthorised private schools in the capital, reserved its judgement.

Ashok Aggarwal and Anuj Aggarwal of Social Jurist had approached the court to regulate all the unauthorised schools running in the capital. There are more than 10,000 schools which are running without any approval or permission of the government and about six lakh students study in these schools.

These schools have not any monitoring system or guidelines and proper fee structure nor proper teaching staff. Every school should be regularised and follow some guidelines which are uniform for each school, said Ashok Aggarwal.
