Views: 338

Delhi Education Minister Arvinder Singh Lovely on Thursday lashed out at schools which are forcing parents to buy costly forms for their children's nursery admission. The minister was reacting to a sting operation conducted by a popular news channel on various public schools which showed how the institutions were fleecing parents by charging anything between Rs.50-400 for prospectus and admission form. “Nobody can charge more than Rs.25 as far as the form and registration is concerned,” the minister said. Schools “cannot force a parent to buy a prospectus and the law is totally clear on this,” added Lovely. Regarding the sting operation, Lovely said that those found to be at fault would be taken to task.
