Four schools functioning as Delhi Public School in Dewas and Indore regions were shut down on Thursday following an order from Delhi high court.
The schools were not registered under Delhi Public School Society, New Delhi.
The Delhi high court ruling said Delhi Public School in Dewas, Delhi Public School on Sanwer Road, DPS Kids in Indore, and DPS Play School of Dewas will be restrained from offering for service, advertising, offering for sale, adopt using and/or dealing in any manner with the well known trademarks/name ‘DPS’ Delhi Public School.
The court further restrained them from representations of any manner that suggest they are connected with DPS.
The Delhi Public School Society had filed a case before Delhi high court earlier this year.
In its case, the society said that copyright violations are being done illegally by these four schools.
Justice Deepa Mishra of Delhi High Court appointed Local Commissioners Mehak Nakra, Krishna Narang, Arpan Wadhawan and Praksh Gautam to seal such fraud schools with the help of local police.
The high court appointee commissioner, with the help of local police, seized material from these schools.
During the commissioner’s visit, Delhi Public School Sanwer Road was found closed and all boards with DPS name/logo were found painted. The school had also apparently declared a holiday on that day.
