Ac­cord­ing to the new di­rec­tions is­sued by Di­rec­tor Gen­eral School Ed­u­ca­tion (DGSE) Ka­han Singh Pannu, there is no need to pro­vide any doc­u­ments while get­ting ad­mis­sions in a government school.

Pannu said, "No stu­dent will be de­nied ad­mis­sion in any of the government schools from classes 1 to 12."

Talk­ing to Hin­dus­tan Times, Pannu said, "Ac­cord­ing to the Right to Ed­u­ca­tion Act, no stu­dent will be de­nied ad­mis­sion in schools so we are fol­low­ing the act and have di­rected the gov­ern­ments school heads not to take any doc­u­ments from any stu­dent while pro­vid­ing ad­mis­sion to them. From classes 1 to 8, no doc­u­ments are re­quired and for classes 9 to 12, the school heads will only fol­low the stan­dard for­mat and mark the check­list about the doc­u­ments submitted by the stu­dent."

He added, "If stu­dent from classes 9 to 12 is not able to sub­mit any doc­u­ment, ad­mis­sion will not be de­nied."

Pannu said, "We just want ev­ery child to be ed­u­cated and should not be de­barred from get­ting ad­mis­sions, as he/she does not have a birth cer­tifi­cate or any other doc­u­ment."

Ear­lier the stu­dents had to sub­mit cer­tain doc­u­ments such as: date of birth cer­tifi­cate, school leav­ing cer­tifi­cate and caste cer­tifi­cate in government schools at the time of ad­mis­sion.

Anoop Ku­mar Passi, prin­ci­pal of Government Se­nior Sec­ondary School, Ise­wal, said, " We have started the ad­mis­sion process for class 1 to 12 from April 1 as per di­rec­tions from the DGSE."

Passi adds, "We have de­cided to fol­low DGSE's di­rec­tions and will not ask any par­ent to sub­mit any doc­u­ment for ad­mis­sion to any stu­dent."

Bar­jin­der Singh, in­charge of Government Pri­mary School, Dul­lay, Lud­hi­ana, said, "We will fol­low the di­rec­tions of the DGSE and no stu­dent will be de­nied ad­mis­sion."
