WHY EDUCATISTS NOT APPOINTED AS CHAIRMAN, DSGMC SCHOOLS
IS IT A MOVE TO ATTRACT VOTE BANK
Some unqualified persons have recently been given command of plum managerial posts in schools run by the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC). The handing over of responsibility of Chairmans and Managers in 12 main branches of Guru Harkrishan Public Schools as well as in their government-aided schools to such persons who have no experience in the educational field, whereas it is mandatory under the Delhi School Education Act & rules 1973 that a person appointed to the post of Manager in these schools must be atleast a graduate and have 10 years experience in teaching and educational administration.
There are apprehensions that the act of handing over command of these schools to unqualified members & non-members is nothing but only to increase vote-bank of these office-bearers. He said that due to sheer violation of rules, the standard of education in these schools will further go downward and these already financial crunch facing schools are likely to be closed very soon.
Whereas the need of the hour warrants to seek services of the educationalists to improve reputation and financial position of these institutions, till that time the Principals/Head of schools can be given the additional responsibility of Managers as prescribed in Delhi Schools Education Act. The DSGMC management are inclined to appoint unqualified Manager in these Schools when well qualified experienced Principals are available in all schools who are fully competent to handle the additional charge as Managers as per Delhi School Education Act.
In the matters of non-payment of salary and dues to the serving and retiree staff of these schools, the office-bearers are filing Affidavits in the Courts saying that the DSGMC has no concern with these schools, but on the other hand under what provision of law the same office-bearers are continuously appointing Chairmans and Managers in these schools?
