many mcd school may not get recognition due to size of campus
Master plan 2007 dictates that an MCD school must have a minimum area of 800 square meters. Around 35 MCD schools have failed to fulfill these criteria and hence their recognition is in limbo. Only those schools are given exemptions which are located in city zone areas like paharganj and sadar Bazar. So MCD has recognized those schools which are located in these areas even if they have small area. For others” fate, MCD has written to urban development Ministry.These 35 schools are operating without valid recognition. Most of them have an area of only 200 square meters. They had applied for recognition in 2006. Now, schools as well as MCD are waiting the response from the ministry.
