The management of South Delhi-based Indian School has been directed to absorb all the teachers and 500 students of the charitable RKK Gyan Mandir Middle School at Tis January Lane.
A Supreme Court bench headed by Justice J M Panchal gave the direction as Indian School ’s management was earlier running the charitable school.
The land in South Delhi was allotted to the trust in lieu of the land in New Delhi area and the management was expected to shift R K K Gyan Mandir to the new site.
The court upheld the Delhi HC verdict imposing a fine of Rs 75,000 on Indian School and directed it to accommodate the students either on freeship basis or charge an amount that should not be in excess of what they were paying at the Tis January Lane school.
The court accepted the school’s arguments that those who were willing to join Indian School would have to make transportation arrangements.
