Case of admissions of economically weaker section children to private schools: Delhi High Court intervenes
It is a matter of great concern that private schools of Delhi had been reluctant in implementing the Right to Education Act. They had been delaying the admissions to children belonging to economically weaker section (EWS) of the society.

NOW, THE Delhi High Court has directed the schools to fill the vacant EVS seats during summer vacation and submit compliance report. In its recent order, the Delhi High Court has directed the education department of  Delhi state to complete admission process for vacant seats for EWS children during the ensuing summer vacation.
The cause of EWS admissions was taken up an NGO called Social Jurist since thousands of EWS seats in unaided private schools remained unfilled in Delhi. 
One wonders how come that the unaided private schools in the capital city are so 'unlawful' and reluctant to comply with the provisions of RTE Act which makes it mandatory to grant of admissions to the extent of 25 percent seats to the children belonging to EWS section in private schools. 
One may recall that the disadvantaged and EWS children are to be admitted in unaided private schools under the RTE Act for free education to fill 25 percent their seats.
