Said a PMC official, "Several parents approached us saying some schools were not cooperating and denied admission to their wards. There are 128 schools that have failed to admit deserving children.

The admission is applicable from the starting classes of the school. It was to address these issues that the meeting was called." The official said the deadline for admissions was extended as there were still a lot of children who want admissions but did not have required caste or income certificates. "The extension will give such children enough time to procure the necessary documents. Also, the 128 erring schools will soon be given a memo, asking for an explanation for their failure to implement the provision. They will also be directed to fill their 25% slot by July 13," said the official. Meanwhile, the school education board has announced a special drive, between July 2 and 13, for parents who are facing problems in getting admissions for their children. "Such parents could approach us at our office in Dadoji Konddeo primary school in Kasba Peth with the required documents and we will address their problems. After verifying the documents, we will give them a letter of recommendation for their child, which can be taken to the school for admission," he said.
