The ongoing nursery admissions in the capital have turned out to be a way of making money for schools, if allegations by parents are to be believed.
More than 100 parents have lodged complaints before the Directorate of Education of the Delhi Government alleging that schools have demanded more money to give admission to their children.
There are scores of complaints regarding schools not refunding the fee in case parents want to pull out their kids for admission in other school.
“We have received a number of complaints against schools and are trying to settle them,” a senior government official said.
The official said the parents have filed their complaints online about demands for more money by schools.
When the admission process started, the parents complained about schools charging more money for the prospectus and forms. But now when the admission process has been initiated, parents have alleged that they are being asked for donations.
“The school has not come out with a list at all as all the admissions was internal based on donation paid. The complainant was also called asking to give donation of Rs 35,000 for which no receipt was being given,” a complaint to the DoE read.
