The daughter of a CRPF constable, who took voluntary retirement, has found a well-wisher in Delhi High Court which has allowed her to continue her Class XI studies in CRPF Public School despite the fact that her father is no more in service.
Justice S Ravinder Bhat in an interim order recently, also directed the school's governing body not to terminate Rimpy's father-Madan Singh's membership from the society and set aside a notice issued on December 13 seizing his membership.
Filing a petition before Justice Bhat, the petitioner stated that her father, a constable, took voluntary retirement from the job in 2007 after which the school started raising a bill towards her tuition fee. In October 2007, she was served with a fee slip amounting to Rs 50,995, she added.
In December 2007, the school society seized her father's membership and threatened to strike off her name from the school rolls.
The court rejected the school's submission that as per the governing body's rules and regulations, a CRPF employee looses his membership once he leaves the job.
Justice Bhat also dismissed another submission that the school was charging higher fees from other personnel for allowing their kids to study in it.
