New Delhi, Sep 9 (UNI) The Delhi High Court today issued a notice to the Director of Education (Delhi Government) following complaints from several students for being denied admission in government schools.
Justice Vipin Sanghi directed the Director of Education to reply by September 19 as to why the students were being denied admission.
Complaints were filed by lawyer Ashok Aggarwal and Anuj Aggarwal stating that various students from Jahangirpuri were not getting admission in government schools.
Three students -- Pushpa, Reena and Neeraj --who got compartment last year in the 11th class and have now cleared the exams were being denied admission in K-Block Jahangirpuri Senior Secondary Girls School and K-Block Boys School respectively.
Similarly, Kiran, who was transferred from Rae Bareli is not getting admission in class five as her transfer certificate is not verified. Wheras the rules say that it is duty of the school to get the certificate verified on its own. Another student, Mamta, who cleared her 10th class from Libaspur, was not getting admission in any school in Jahangirpuri.
'' The plight of poor people is such that despite the government schools in each locality, the students have to run from pillar to post to get admission as the schools are insensitive to their requirements,'' Mr Aggarwal said.
''Usually, the perents are illiterate , the students do not have birth certificates or other papers. Students are denied education on technical grounds and there is no one in the schools to help them complete the formalities of affidavits, birth certificates and others,'' he added.
