New Delhi: On the recommendation of the Delhi Legislative Assembly’s SC/ST Welfare Committee, the Education Department of Delhi Government has withdrawn the recognition of JD Tytler School, New Rajinder Nagar for not taking admission of students under EWS quota and not providing free stationery. This order of the department will be considered effective from April 1, 2023. After this the school will not be able to take admission of new children in any class. Vishesh Ravi, the chairman of the committee, said that the Delhi Government under the leadership of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is committed to providing world-class education to all children. “CM Arvind Kejriwal has given clear instructions that EWS children should be given admission and stationery as per rules. The committee had recommended to the education department that strict action should be taken against schools not following the rules issued by the government. In this context the recognition of the school has been withdrawn,” he informed.

Vishesh Ravi said that according to the order issued by the Education Department on July 16, 2022, children have the right to free and compulsory education. “Violation of the order of the department was found at JD Tytler School located in New Rajinder Nagar. It was found that the school had not taken admission of some students under EWS quota and also had not provided free stationery to students. The action was recommended keeping in mind the interests of the children studying in the school. After which it has been instructed by the Education Department that the school will not admit new students in any class from the academic session 2022-23 and after that. The concerned District DDE will ensure that the students of JD Tytler School be accommodated in the nearest Government Schools if they so desire. It has also been directed that the salary and arrears of the school staff be paid till the school is in operation.”

He added, “Earlier, on the recommendation of the committee, the education department had issued show cause notices to private schools refusing to admit students under EWS quota. Even after the notice, some private schools had not taken admission of EWS students and had not even given them stationery. Therefore, the committee had asked the education department to withdraw the recognition and register an FIR on receipt of complaints against such private schools. Several show cause notices were issued to JD Tytler School. The education department delegation visited the school several times and held several meetings with the school administration to ensure fair treatment to EWS students and parents. But the school refused to take admission of students under EWS quota even after several attempts. The response of the school to the show cause notice was not acceptable. This school was also not providing free stationery, books and uniform to the students coming under EWS as per rules.”
