MOCKERY OF RIGHT TO EDUCATION - Delhi Govt Schools deny admission to 4+yrs age children in pre-primary class
Delhi Government school, namely, Govt Sarvodyaya Boys/Girls School, Patpar Ganj, Delhi-110091 has denied admissions to as many as 15 students of 4+ years age in pre-primary class in the academic year 2012-13 on the alleged ground that school has no permission to admit more than 40 children. It is only a sample. The same thing is happening in all the Delhi Government Sarvodyaya Schools. It is submitted that such denial of admission is not only unconstitutional, arbitrary, discriminatory, violative of Articles 14 (right to equality), 21 (right to life with dignity), 21-A (right to education) and Article 38 (right to social justice) of the Constitution of India but also in violation of Section 11 of Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act, 2009.
