Jamshedpur, Jan. 31: It’s admission time in private schools of Jamshedpur after the results for entry to nursery was declared by all the ICSE/ISC affiliated schools last week.
According to RTE, 25% seats have to be reserved for the children belonging to BPL and the deprived section for the society. The Supreme Court, Jharkhand High Court and Jharkhand government have also ordered for the same but despite the orders, private schools in Jamshedpur are harassing the BPL (Below Poverty Line) parents who want to get their child admitted.
Dr. Umesh Shah, president of Jamshedpur Abhibhavak Sangh, on Tuesday alleged that management of DBMS School Kadma and DBMS English School BH Area have ruled the BPL income certificate issued by the district administration as incorrect and refused to take admission.
On the other hand, Tagore Academy, Sakchi refused to take admission despite being sent a letter from the district education department, said Dr. Shah, adding, ‘Hill Top School Telco management didn’t allow the parents to enter the premises and sent them back’.
He further said that the district education department had sent 18 applications for BPL children to Baldwin Farm Area High School but the parents were refused admission and the management said that they didn’t receive any such application.
On Tuesday a delegation of Jamshedpur Abhibhavak Sangh led by Dr. Umesh Shah met the DC Amit Kumar and appealed him to take lawful action against the four school management who are not considering the courts orders and thereby depriving the BPL kids to get admitted to the schools.
