Information about Private Schools of Delhi for EWS & Mangement Quota under RTI

Question

rajeshy05

Hello,

 

Now a days , I am constantly getting complaints from several parents in Delhi about the high handedness shown by various schools and surprisingly most of these schools are renowned ones.

Important point is about the selection of EWS candidates and donation demand under management quota. Several people have raised their concerns that even though the EWS candidates are getting admission but in the lieu of EWS they are giving admission to people who actually does not belong to any such category, however they able to secure such admission based on fraud certificates, but schools are not checking anything and turns a blind eye towards all such things.

Second point is that once a genuine student was selected under EWS candidate, the school makes a separate section for these students who belongs to disadvantage group and thus they have to face a tough time in the hands of school authorities and there are also complaints about showing door to such people if they try to raise their voices.

 

So , I need following information from the school :

1. Need the school records which shows EWS student in each class and each section of the respective class.

2. Need the school records which elaborate the schemes or benefits that the school is passing to the disadvantage group students.

3. Need the school records which shows the name of the EWS students and their address so that if needed we could expose the fraud in securing the EWS certificate by the affluent class people.

4. Need the school records which shows the list of students who are taken under the management quota and what is the donation amount taken by the student and what is the criteria school is following in using such discretion, so that same could be challenged in the court of law.

 

Apart from this, please suggest if they any other means available to secure the above mentioned information.

Thanks in advance for your support and understanding.

 

Regards,

Rajesh

the desired information cannot be obtained in complete form by filing RTI querry and it is advisable that you can ask for INSPECTION OF DOCUMENTS by filing RTI with the concerned PIO/CPIO so that you can your seld verify the files and take extracts of information desired by you.

First verify whether these Private schools are public authorities within the meaning of RTI Act. If so, you can file RTI application and seek information from PIO of the school. Else, you can file RTI application with CPIO of regulatory authority - DEO and seek information held by and under the control of it.

I reproduce what I have mentioned about Schools being public authority under RTI Act 2005 some time ago,

 

QUOTE "I bring the following for your kind information and usage in case the School denies you information.

 

Conditions for recognition -- No private school shall be recognized, or continue to be recognized,

by the appropriate authority unless the school fulfills the following conditions, namely:

 

(xviii) the school furnishes such reports and information as may be required by the Director from time to time and complies with such instructions of the appropriate authority or the Director as may be issued to secure the continued fulfillment of the condition of recognition or the removal of deficiencies in the working of the school;

(xix) all records of the school are open to inspection by any officer authorized by the Director or the

appropriate authority at any time, and the school furnishes such information as may be necessary to enable the Government or the Administrator to discharge its or his obligations to Parliament or to the Legislative Assembly, as the case may be."

 

The issues relating to management and regulation of schools responsible for promotion of education are so important for development that it cannot be left at whims and caprices of private bodies, whether funded or not by the Government. The Director, Directorate of Education should, therefore, ensure compliance of these directions." UNQUOTE

 

As per my take, all schools which are recognized are public authorities under RTI Act 2005.

Sir is it citing of regulatory or statutory CONTROL of gov. Over schools.

The degree of CONTROL ALSO NEEDS TO BE SUBSTANTIAL NOT MERE REGULATORY OR STATUTORY .

If such private school is aided it certainly come under ambit of RTI Act indirectly. So to say that any private institution is being controlled or financed substantially and though it is a private organisation, one may seek information from records of controlling authority like DEO. An applicant can file RTI Application to SPIO of DEO (Public Authority) and can seek any information available in their records submitted by such private entity.

      Recently PIO of public authority, in a RTI application submitted u/s 6 of the RTI Act, responded to applicant after the stipulated time, you please visit the office of his junior and inspect the file/files, and after inspection of the files obtain the documents by depositing the money itself. Therefore, please provide expert opinions about the issue, as in my opinion no such provision do available to PIO to direct the information seekers under RTI Act. However if applicant desires himself to inspect the files, then option available to applicant to file the RTI application under section 2(j)(I) of the RTI act.

      The Union ministry of women and child development has asked the MHRD’s department of school education to act on introduction of “comprehensive sexuality education”
      Replying to an RTI query, ministry’s central public information officer (CPIO) Anand Prakash, also the deputy secretary, informed that he had directed the department of school education to take necessary action on the issues related to MHRD urgently, as directed by Madras HC. He also sent a copy of his reply to Dr Indrajit Khandekar, professor and in-charge of Clinical Forensic Medicine Unit (CFMU) at Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences (MGIMS), Sevagram. 
      In the order, justice N Kirubalan had directed the central government to take a decision to introduce free and compulsory comprehensive sexuality education at the high school level. It should be done to enable students to understand gender identity, sexuality, age-related physical changes and problems, and to protect themselves from sexual advances and abuses. “India has its commitment under United Nations International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) Agenda 1994, affirming the sexual and reproductive rights (SRRs) of adolescents and young people as per Article 253 of the Constitution of India,” the judge had said.
