HC lauds govt for bringing dropouts back to school

The High Court of Karnataka on Friday directed the State government to complete within two months the drive to bring dropouts back to school. 

During the hearing on a suo motu public interest litigation, principal government advocate R Devdas told the court that of the three lakh dropouts, the government had so far brought 44,159 back to schools, and attributed the success to government’s incentive schemes.

A division of Chief Justice D H Waghela and Justice Budihal, which heard the matter, appreciated the government’s effort and sought a report on the drive. It suggested the government not to shelve the incentive scheme. 

The division bench, during the hearing of another suo motu petition on open borewells, directed the government to file a report on the closure of borewells in the State by next date of hearing.
