Views: 144

The Delhi High Court on 17 September, 2007 directed the city government to submit a list of private schools, which were given land at concessional rate but had failed to provide free education to children from economically-weaker sections of the society.

A Division Bench of Justice M K Sharma and Sanjeev Khanna also asked all such private schools to give wide publicity to the percentage of freeship in their schools through newspapers and other mediums to make public aware of the facility. There are 381 schools that were given land at concessional rate but only 250 of them have filed affidavit stating that they would provide reservation for weaker section in admission, the petitioner said. The Bench had directed private schools to implement 15 per cent freeship from the next academic session on a trial basis.
