Subject: Poor student wrongfully denied admission by Sarvodaya Bal Vidyalaya, No. 2, Mandawali, in Class IX for the academic year 2014-15
I have been informed by Shri Kallu Raikwar, S/o Shri Pankhi Raikwar, R/o 12A/64, Block- 12A, Trilokpuri, Delhi- 110091 [Mob.- 9873496524] that his son, Master Ramdas Raikwar has been wrongfully denied admission in Class IX by Sarvodaya Bal Vidyalaya (SBV), No.2, Mandawali, [Phone No.- 011-22476708] for the academic year 2014-15.
Master Ramdas Raikwar successfully completed Class VIII from Poorv Madhyamik Vidhyalaya, Makanpur Colony, Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh in June 2014 and is in possession of a valid and countersigned Transfer Certificate as well as mark-sheet. He appeared in the entrance test on 23.07.2014 for admission in Delhi Government schools, and also cleared the same. (Copies of the Transfer Certificate, mark-sheet and Admit Card are enclosed herein)
However, when Master Ramdas Raikwar went to SBV, No. 2, Mandawali, the school denied admission to him on the grounds that his father, Shri Kallu Raikwar, was unable to produce any identification card signifying his address proof in Delhi. Master Ramdas Raikwar produced his UIDIA Resident Copy, but the school management yet did not admit the child. This action of the school is absolutely arbitrary, unjust and bad in law.
It is submitted that Shri Kallu Raikwar belongs to the marginalized strata of the society, and is being unnecessarily harassed to produce an address proof in Delhi. In our meeting about 3 weeks ago on the issue of admissions in Class IX in Delhi Government schools, you had assured me that no student would be denied admission in Class IX in the academic year 2014-15 irrespective of whether the student qualifies in the entrance test or not. In Master Ramdas’s case, however, SBV, No.2, Mandawali has denied admission to the student in spite of him having cleared the entrance test and being in possession of a valid Transfer Certificate. The school is raising extraneous demands with the motive of denying admission to a student lawfully entitled to admission.
I thus request you to look into the matter and direct the abovementioned school to admit Master Ramdas Raikwar in Class IX without any further harassment.
Ashok Agarwal, Advocate.
