DPI issues notice to 10 private schools

The schools in question have begun admissions for non-RTE quota seats

The Department of Public Instruction (DPI) has taken action against private schools that have begun admissions for the non-RTE quota seats for the academic year 2014-2015, thus violating the DPI’s orders.

Commissioner for Public Instruction Mohammad Mohsin said notices have been sent to 10 private schools in the city for having begun admissions for the non-RTE quota seats before March. In a related development, the DPI on Friday issued a circular that said that if it is found that parents have submitted fake income certificates to get their wards admitted to school under the RTE quota, such admissions will be cancelled. The Deputy Commissioner or the tahsildar can be informed about instances of fake certificates being issued.

“As the Revenue Department is the issuing authority, we can only cancel the admissions once the tahsildar or the Deputy Commissioner concerned declares that the income certificate produced in school in a particular case is fake,” Mr. Mohsin said. Besides, the department has said that criminal action will be initiated against agents who lure parents and promise admission for their children under the RTE quota.
