DC constitutes team to curb donation menace

The committee was asked to submit its report within four days. He was addressing the district-level meeting of the Scheduled Castes/Scheduled Tribes Welfare Committee as well as monitoring committee here.

The committee members brought to the notice of the deputy commissioner that some private schools have denied admission to the SC/ST students and also collecting hefty donation from them. This has been going on for years without any fear of law.

DDPI’s reply

Reacting to this, Deputy Director of Department of Public Instructions Nagendrakumar said the department had already sent the circular to all private schools directing them not to collect exorbitant fees from parents.

He even visited certain schools and found that they have announced the list of fees.

Following complaints of not following roaster while giving admission to schools and colleges, a circular has been issued last year and issued show cause notice.

Those institutes had been asked to strictly follow the government norms for admission.

When the committee members expressed their unhappiness over the reply of deputy director, the deputy commissioner constituted a four-member committee and asked it to furnish the inspection committee report in four days.

Gupta also asked the committee to visit all schools including Marimallappa, Sadvidya and Vijaya Vittalla High Schools and submit the report before May 16. The district administration would take chalk out future course of action only after receipt of the report.

The committee members D Padmanad, B Radha and Bettaiah Kote and others were present.
