Subject: Hundreds of Class VIII passed students denied admission in Class IX in Delhi government schools

Dear Sir,
I would like to remind you of our meeting about three weeks ago on the problem of admissions in Class IX in Delhi Government schools faced by students possessing valid Class VIII passed TC duly countersigned by the concerned Education Officer. These students have passed Class VIII in terms of RTE Act, 2009 in the academic year 2013-14 from Recognized private schools of Delhi/ Recognized private schools and Government schools outside Delhi.

It is submitted that students have been illegally subjected to entrance tests held by the Directorate of Education on 2nd May 2014 and 23rd July 2014. Those who have not qualified these entrance examinations, have been refused admission in Class IX in Delhi government schools. The number of such students are in hundreds and if they are not given admission, their careers would be spoiled.

You had assured me during our meeting that no student whether qualifies the entrance examination or not, would not be denied admission in Class IX in the academic year in 2014-15.

Therefore, I request you to kindly intervene in this matter on urgent basis to save the future of hundreds of students by permitting all such students to take admission in Class IX in the Government schools who are possessing valid Class VIII passed TC duly countersigned by the Education Officer without insisting upon the qualifying of the entrance examination.

With Regards

From April to today we have been going for admission in every nearby govt school but every school deny admission in class ixth. We are tired. I am widow and I have 3 children. I can't pay the fees of private school further.
One school in Bharat Nagar take entrance test on 23/7/2014 and out of 12-13 student only my son has passed the exam. Before exam we have confirm that is it english medium in class ix they told Yes. At the time of admission we also confirm that my son can't study in hindi medium. He cant do maths and science in english they assure that it is english medium. But after admission when my son start school Ist day he comes to know that it is hindi medium from class ixth. I Went to school they replied that we will transfer him in another govt. english medium school and they transfer him at Roop Nagar No. 4 on 30/7/2014. We went at roop Nagar No. 4 school on 1st August they deny to accept the tranfer. Sir Please advise us what we should do.
