Payment of money for filling forms sparked a row between two schools in the city on the last day of the UP Board examination here on Saturday.
In reality, the altercation that took place between the two schools on Sitapur Road – TD Girls Inter College and Saket School — was a testimony to the fact that nothing was fair in the Board examination. Infighting amongst the officials of the two schools spilled onto the street when one of the schools alleged that it was not paid the promised amount.
As TD Girls Inter College did not have the due recognition, the forms of students of this school were filled from Saket Public Inter College. The deal was finalised at Rs 85,000. When the management of TD Girls Inter College did not receive the promised amount, the management of Saket School asked the students to pay Rs 300 each. However, the parents refused to pay a single penny as they have already paid full fees to TD Girls Inter College.
Interestingly, it was in the presence of parents and children that the manager of TD Girls Inter College and principal of Saket Public College leveled charges against each other. The principal of Saket College said that TD Girls Inter College was supposed to pay them Rs 85,000 but they paid only Rs 25,000.
The principal of Saket College showed some cheques in this connection. In a bid to come clean, the principal of Saket College said that they agreed to enroll the students of TD Girls on humanitarian ground otherwise they would have lost a year.
But the management of TD Girls said that since some of the subjects of their college were not recognised by the Board, they filled the form of their students from other college. Meanwhile, DIOS Vikas Srivastava said that guilty would be punished.
