Management of three Adarsh schools divested of powers over fraud

Faridkot, September 18

After a judicial inquiry reportedly indicted the private management of three Government Adarsh Schools for bungling funds, the School Education Department today sacked the management.

The department had allotted the management of three Government Adarsh Schools — one in Moga and two in Faridkot — to Ludhiana-based Sukh Sagar Avenue Welfare Society under the Private Public Partnership (PPP) mode on August 12, 2016.

Under the PPP mode, the state government spends Rs 1,852 per student per month in 24 Adarsh schools in the state. These funds are provided to the management.

Earlier, after a judicial inquiry into the functioning of these Adarsh schools found many financial and administrative irregularities, the Director General, School Education, (DGSE) had issued orders to cancel the 99-year lease with the management on June 4 this year.

However, challenging the cancellation of the agreement, Narinder Singh Randhawa, chairman of the private management, had approached the High Court, claiming that the judicial inquiry report was never communicated to him. Following this, the Education Department withdrew its June 4 cancellation orders and proceeded further from the stage of supplying the inquiry report to the association and sacked the private management today. The District Education Department has taken charge of the three schools now. — TNS
