High Court Summons DDA for Arbitrariness in Private Schools

The Delhi High Court has strongly condemned the DDA for not providing details of DDA's private schools. The court has also directed the DDA director to send a notice to the court himself. The High Court has directed that no single seat of the EWS of Delhi Private Schools will remain vacant.

The Delhi High Court is hearing a petition related to nursery admission in private schools on DDA Land. Taking the DDA on Tuesday in the matter, the court said that till date, why the DDA is not giving it the record so that it is known where and when the land was given to open the private school in Delhi. The petitioner had complained that DDA has made houses at places given to open private schools with the collusion of DDA officials. They are being used commercially.

In view of the seriousness of these allegations, the DDA had ordered all the records to be produced in the court, but even after several hearings, when the DDA lawyers and officials did not present these records, the angry court had directed the DDA director to appear physically.


At the same time, the High Court has directed the Delhi Government to ensure that no EWS seat in private schools remains vacant. The court has often received complaints like this that in the absence of information from the schools, EWS children are not able to get admission and taking advantage of it, private schools give admission to the general category children with heavy donation.
