Delhi High Court Praises Government for Efficient Textbook Distribution in Schools

The Delhi High Court on Thursday lauded the efforts of the Delhi government’s education department for successfully distributing textbooks to all students in government schools across the city. This acknowledgment comes after previous concerns regarding delays in the distribution process.

In a recent hearing, the counsel for the Delhi government, Santosh Kumar Tripathi, informed the court that the distribution exercise had been completed. The announcement was met with approval from the bench, led by Acting Chief Justice Manmohan and Justice Tushar Rao Gedela, who commended the initiative.

“Very good…It shows that when there is a will, there is a way,” remarked the Acting Chief Justice, emphasizing the effectiveness of determined effort in governance.

The bench officially recorded its appreciation for the Directorate of Education’s diligent execution of their duties. This positive outcome marks a significant turnaround from earlier criticisms when the high court had to intervene due to the reported delays.

The proceedings were part of a petition filed by the NGO Social Jurist, represented by advocates Ashok Agarwal and Kumar Utkarsh. The NGO had raised concerns about the non-supply of educational materials and statutory benefits, including uniforms and notebooks, to students despite the start of the new academic session.
