Delhi H.C. orders disabled boy to be given admission and fee remission in a mainstream public school
D.N.I.S. News Network – The Delhi High Court has directed Universal Public School to allow admission to a disabled student, who was being neglected in pre-nursery classroom, as his teachers were finding it difficult to “interact with the student,” under a freeship quota.
In the Order, which came in form of a suggestion, Justice Vikramjit Sen asked the school authorities to allow three-year-old Adesh Aggarwal a remission in the fee, as is slated for students with economically weaker background.
The School Authorities immediately agreed to comply with the Court’s suggestion and allowed admission to the boy with a request that his parents would also arrange for a full-time attendant.
According to the school’s Advocate, R. K. Varshey, the boy’s parents had applied for his admission to the pre-nursery class about nine months back. “The school admitted the child but, probably showed unwillingness to continue to teach him since he was disabled,” a news daily quoted him as saying.
The boy’s parents later filed a petition through Advocate A. K. Tripathi before the High Court, based on which the Court summoned the Principal of the school, who told the Court the school did not have any objections in allowing an admission to him but the teachers found it tough to interact with the child as he could not “inform her about his needs and requirements.”
