Uniform admission form for govt schools

In a move to give uniformity to admission process in the state run schools, the education department has released format of admission forms for all the classes. The admission form — it will also carry the details like student's caste, parents' income and physical disability — will cut down the workload of the teachers who were earlier required to fill separate forms for student scholarships.

Director General (School Education) K S Pannu said that the format has been issued to the district education offices and from the coming session the admissions would be taken based on the form. Meanwhile the legal cell of the education department has disposed 72 cases out of 126 during the second public hearing on Thursday.
