The Delhi Government was questioned about the 6000 vacant posts of teachers in its school in the capital on Wednesday. The Supreme Court came up with a warning for the Delhi Government that if the Delhi Subordinate Services Selection Board (DSSSB) is incapable of performing its task then the responsibility should be entrusted to some other agency. An ultimatum of two weeks was given by a bench headed by Justice Dalveer Bhandari, to file an affidavit giving a schedule for filling up the vacancies.
A PIL was filed by the Environment and Consumer Protection Foundation in 2004, which facilitated the instructions give by the court. The former highlighted the plight of government run-schools in the capital along with the lack of basic civic amenities like drinking water, toilets and buildings.
