schools and directed them to strictly comply with it.
The schools were told to submit the data of all the admissions made under the EWS
category and it was revealed that some of the private unaided recognised schools were not
giving admissions to the extent of 20 per cent ( as mandated ) to the Economically Weaker
Section (EWS) children.
The new notification states:
That the schools must maintain proper records and registers including student
admission and withdrawal register, student attendance etc. For students admitted
under EWS/DG category no tuition fees can be charged and if not so then the school
is supposed to refund the same immediately under proper intimation to the
Directorate of Education (DOE).
The schools are required to provide free books, school uniforms and writing material
to each and every student admitted under EWS/DG category. Income certificate
issued by the competent authority declaring the total annual family income less than
Rs. 1 Lakh is valid document for admission whether in the name of mother or father
of the child.
Around 300 schools were identified as defaulters for not sharing the status of
admissions. The admission process which started from January 1 was scheduled to end
up by March 31. But the process is still continuing.
