With many schools not yet coming up clean with their status on EWS, and the UT Education Department allegedly not intervening in the matter with as much sternness as they should, city residents are crying foul.
When the Director Public Instructions (Schools) Sandeep Hans was contacted and asked why the department is being liberal in allowing the private schools to take time in filling the EWS seats, Hans replied that the issue is quite sensitive. However, he refused to come on record with his statement. He said that many schools are yet to furnish the mandatory information regarding the EWS seats. Therefore, the department has decided to give sufficient time to the schools to fill the seats.
However, when asked whether the delay in filling of the reserved seats wouldn’t affect the studies as the new academic session has already started, the DPI said that the entry level classes won’t suffer any loss due to delay.
Meanwhile, the education department would be submitting the information to the high court during the last week of this month regarding the status of EWS seats in the city schools.
