Rs 100 for winter propagandize uniform: HC seeks Punjab govt’s reply

December 18, 2015 - School Uniform

A Punjab and Haryana high probity dais on Thursday told a Punjab supervision to respond to a petition that schoolchildren in a state were being given unsound volume for winter uniform.

The instruction from a dais of probity SK Mittal and probity Shekher Dhawan came on a public-interest petition by an disciple HC Arora. It asks a executive ubiquitous of propagandize preparation (DGSE) and a Ministry of Human Resource Development to respond by Dec 21.

The postulant had settled that a HRD method was giving Rs 400 per authorised tyro to all states for a supply of winter uniform to girls, Scheduled Caste/Scheduled Tribe children, and students in a next misery line category, adult to Class 8; though by a Dec 7 letter, a DGSE had expelled usually a fourth (Rs 100 per authorised student) of a authorised amount. He claimed that usually Rs 16 crore had been released and Rs 48 crore funded by a government.

“With this Rs 100, any lady is approaching to buy salwar/kameez, dupatta, socks, boots and sweater; and any child is approaching to get a span of trousers, shirt, sweater, patka/cap, hosiery and shoes,” Arora submitted, adding that a volume was “inadequate” for all these items.
