Decide what constitute adequate writing material for students under RTE Act – High Court directed Director of Education Delhi Govt

Delhi High Court (Manmohan J.) today directed the Director of Education, Govt. of NCT of Delhi to take a view as to what constitutes adequate writing material vis-a-vis each student admitted to schools at elementary level run by Government/MCD in terms of Rule 8 of Delhi Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Rules, 2011 and place before the Court within 4 weeks.

The Court was hearing a petition by a class III student of NDMC School, Master Satyam Prajapati filed through Adv Ashok Agarwal highlighting that the Government/MCD have not discharged their obligation in terms of Rule 8 of Delhi Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Rules, 2011 which entitles every student to get free writing material. It was submitted that NDMC are providing 5 subject notebooks and 1 drawing book per year to the students at elementary level that do not constitute adequate writing material. The petition had also highlighted that there were 4 lakh students studying in 740 primary school run by NDMC and they had not been provided even with 5 notebooks and 1 drawing book in the year 2015-16 which they were getting earlier.

“That though the NDMC in its affidavit has said that in addition to the supply of notebooks, the proposal for providing other writing/stationery materials i.e. pen, pencils, rubber, sharpener etc. in future was also being considered, the things are not clear and therefore, the Director of Education, Govt. of Delhi may be directed to take a decision in this regard so that all students at elementary level both in Govt. and MCDs schools could be benefited”, argued Mr. Agarwal.

Next date of hearing is 25.04.2016.

Sir please request to kendriya vidyalay a sangathan One Time Temporary Relaxation in CTET.
We are aspiring Teachers, who did Diploma and Bachelor Degree inEducation with the hope of becoming teachers. We want to appear in Kendriya Vidyalaya Teacher Recruitment Exam, form of which will be filled from 24th August.But unfortunately one cannot fill Kendriya Vidyalaya Teacher Recruitment Exam form unless one has qualified CTET {Central Teachers Eligibility Test}, which hasn't been conducted since September 2016. Because of this we are unable to fill Kendriya Vidyalaya Teacher Recruitment Exam form. This is not our mistakesir that CBSE has failed to conduct CTET for last two years. But our hopes of becoming teachers are shattered due to this mistake of CBSE.Though CBSE has announced CTET for this year but it is of no use as KV has asked to fullfil its eligibility before last date of filling forms.In light of this we request PMO to intervene and direct MHRD to give one time temporary relaxation to candidate in CTET for filling and appearing in KV exam. KV need not give us job without clearing CTET but at least they should allow us to appear in their recruitment exam.We will clear next CTET with our hardwork. And if we were unable to clear next CTET, KV has every right to reject our candidature.Please consider our request sir. Otherwise we have to wait for 2 years for announcement of new vacancies
Yours Faithfully
Aspiring Teachers.
