Students belonging to the poor community will now be able to take admission on time in private schools. Income certificates were not hand over on the time and it was delaying the guardians to carry out admission of their children in the private schools.
The UT Education Department has given assurance to the parents regarding the issuance of income certificates on time. The assurance is given by Rubinderjit Singh Brar, who is the director of school education in UT.
Brar wrote a letter to the office of the deputy commissioner regarding the timely issuance of income certificates. He said that the income limit to obtain income certificates is Rs 1.50 lakh and it will continue further, but MHRD is looking for a UT proposal to increase the income limit to Rs. 2.50 Lakh. UT education department attended a meeting with the heads of private unrecognized schools on 14 November.
The meeting was held to set the common admission schedule. The schools were notified about the timely issuance of the income certificates from the DC office so that there would not be any delay from schools.
For a few years, under the Right to Education Act, the students belonging to the general category were taking classes in the new academic session and the students of the weaker sections were delayed from taking admission due to delay in getting income certificates.
The DC office was not giving the income certificates for taking admission in private schools. But with the last year’s change in the UT administration, the DC office has started to issue income certificates that will now help children take admission in the private schools.
