Will Take Over 449 Private Schools Delhi Govt Tells HC

New Delhi: The Delhi government on Wednesday told a sceptical high court that it intends to take over the management of 449 private schools that have failed to refund excess fees to parents. The schools had been identified as defaulters by the court-appointed Justice Anil Dev committee that ordered recovery of excessive school fee with a 9% interest. The takeover proposal has been sent to the lieutenant governor for approval recently.


DoE's claim left a bench of Justices Siddharth Mridul and Najmi Waziri part surprised, part bemused, as it wondered if it was a "bluff" by the government to jolt errant schools to fall in line or a serious attempt to run private institutions. "Alarmingly, in 449 out of 544 schools, the department proposes to take over the management in accordance with law which is placed before the lieutenant governor Delhi for approval," the court recorded in its order, asking if "even 50 trained officials or principals are available" with the directorate to handle these schools.
