Some of the Social Activists with a group of Practicing Lawyers and Social Jurist together have dedicated to the cause of the common man, has written to the Delhi Education Department in order to issue the common application forms in Hindi for the Delhi school admissions under the free-ship quota.
The group noted in a letter that most of the parents belonging to economically weaker section and disadvantaged group category do not read, write or understand English. Regarding the same a Social Jurist advocate Mr. Ashok Agarwal said: “Therefore, to make the economically weaker section admissions effective and purposeful,it is necessary that the Directorate of Education use Hindi”.
He also said that “The Directorate of Education has devised a Common Admission Form for admission under economically weaker section and disadvantaged group category and the same is uploaded on the official website of Directorate of Education for the benefit of the schools as well as the applicants. All schools are directed to use the same format by downloading the application forms or by using a printed application form. And hence the amendment should be brought about immediately to ensure that people are able to use it effectively.
