NEW DELHI: The child rights watch­dog Delhi Com­mis­sion for Pro­tec­tion of Child Rights (DCPCR) has sent a no­tice to a Delhi gov­ern­ment school where a Class X stu­dent was al­legedly failed as the school’s author­ity did not send his marks to the CBSE.

“The Com­mis­sion is in re­ceipt of a com­plaint filed by Mas­ter Ar­jun Chaud­hary, stu­dent of Class X in Gov­ern­ment Boys Se­nior Sec­ondary School, (GBSSS) Qadipur for aca­demic ses­sion 2016-17, al­leg­ing that due to the ca­sual ap­proach of the school by not for­ward­ing his marks to the Cen­tral Board of Sec­ondary Ed­u­ca­tion (CBSE),

he was de­clared fail de­spite clear­ing the exam in re­al­ity,” the no­tice stated.

“In the com­plaint, he threat­ened to com­mit sui­cide on ac­count of con­tin­ued ne­glect from the school au­thor­i­ties to take nec­es­sary mea­sures to rec­tify his marks. He also lev­elled charges of phys­i­cal as­sault and men­tal trauma against the school ad­min­is­tra­tion,” the no­tice fur­ther read.

The Com­mis­sion also said that the school’s cur­rent prin­ci­pal SP Singh ap­peared be­fore it and in­formed that the mat­ter per­tains to the ten­ure of pre­vi­ous prin­ci­pal DC Me­har.

Singh said that he had joined the school re­cently and con­firmed to the Com­mis­sion that the boy was wrongly failed as his marks were not sent to CBSE.

The child could not ap­pear in three pa­pers for some per­sonal rea­sons, hence the Ed­u­ca­tion Depart­ment of Delhi gov­ern­ment had asked the school to ar­range for com­part­ment ex­am­i­na­tion for him and the school did that.

How­ever, the marks sent by the school to the CBSE did not take into the ac­count the com­part­ment ex­ams given by the boy, be­cause of which he failed.

“This in­quiry com­mit­tee is of the opin­ion that Ar­jun Chaud­hary had ap­peared in the com­part­ment ex­am­i­na­tions for Class X,” an­other re­port by the Ed­u­ca­tion Depart­ment stated.

The re­port fur­ther said, “Re­gard­ing the phys­i­cal as­sault on the stu­dent in July last year by one of the school teacher namely Triloki Rai, no ma­te­rial ev­i­dence to sup­port the al­le­ga­tion was fur­nished/ came to the no­tice of the com­mit­tee.”

The CBSE also in­formed that it did not re­ceive the com­part­ment exam marks from the school.

“It is the ut­most re­spon­si­bil­ity of the class teacher to duly up­date and ver­ify his record be­fore fi­nal up­load­ing of marks of the stu­dents on the CBSE portal.

“Due to the neg­li­gence on the part of the teacher, the stu­dent has suf­fered a lot, which leads to men­tal ha­rass­ment and tor­ture. It shows dere­lic­tion/ neg­li­gence of duty on the part of the teacher who was sup­posed to com­pile the marks, so ac­tion deemed fit shall be taken against him,” the DCPCR no­tice ob­served.

The CBSE also in­formed that it did not re­ceive the com­part­ment exam marks from the school
