Letter to CM over class 11 admissions

Pointing out problems associated with admissions in class 11 in government schools, Patrons for Poor People Foundation (PPPF) appealed to chief minister Sheila Dixit to intervene and look into the irregularities.

In a letter written to the CM, the NGO listed a number of issues that the students are facing. In addition to admission in science and commerce being denied on the basis of marks criteria, and admissions being denied based on it being further from the school.

Distance matters

“A student wanted admission in science but despite requisite marks, was not admitted because the distance of school from house was 6 km. “But there is no school which is offering science in a closer radius,” said Md. Umar member of PPPF.

The letter also says if a school does not offer science in a nearby school, then despite getting 70 per cent marks, the minimum criteria for science, he/she does not get the subject in any other school.

The foundation  through the letter demanded admission to all children who have passed standard 10. 

BJP joins in

The Bhartiya Janata Party also criticised the government for its decision to fix marks criteria for admission in coveted subjects of science and commerce. 

In a meeting, Delhi BJP state president, Vijendra Gupta said till now 15,000 students used to get admission in science stream while 36,000 would be admitted in commerce. 

He alleged that this year, by entering into an understanding with private school, seats in science have been reduced to 5200 and in commerce to 20000. 

BJP has sought intervention of Lt. Governor Tejendra Khanna into the matter.
