SummaryPvt unaided schools told to display information on seats in both general and EWS category

Singla refuted Jain’s claims. “RTE Act clearly states that upto Class VIII ‘no child shall be denied admission if such admission is sought subsequent to the extended period’. In case a school refuses to do so, the Directorate can step in and direct the school to admit the student, failing which the school can even be derecognised,” Singla said.

The original CIC order had also asked schools to display other details including salary statements publicly. “The CBSE has also sent a letter, but we have strongly opposed it,” Jain said.

Sources in the government said students from EWS category were sometimes denied admission in Delhi schools. On filing an RTI application, it was found that a school still had seats vacant under the EWS category.
