    Respected Madam,With due respect I wish to state that while you are taking keen interest in empowerment of women ,a section of women working in PSUs have been kept aloof from the Govt. Policy laid via Office Memorandum No. 13018/2/2008-Estt.(L) dated 11th September 2008 followed with recent update on 7th sept No. memorandan No. 13018 /1/2010-Estt .It is hard to state that while govt. employees have been allowed to take care of their ward–we women in PSUs are still suffering. We look forward to meet you & request to implement the same for PSU by taking the matter with DPE.Hoping for a positive respose–faithfully yours -Meena Agarwal –women employee of a PSU………

    Sub: Richmond Global Public School, Miyanwali Nagar, Rohtak Road, New Delhi-87, unethically way adopting in EWS admission in nursery class in the academic year 2011-12.
    Dear Sir/Madam,
    I (Dharmender Singh) would like to draw your kind attention that my family lives in Jawala Puri, Delhi and belongs to SC category. I have 4+ year daughter, trying to admission in Richmond Global School of neighborhood this year 20011- 12 sessions.
    In January, when the admission process was on, I am getting a EWS Nursery admission form from the school’s security guard. I was submitted the EWS Nursery admission form for his daughter in above school, but they (School) were not given the any acknowledgement /receipt to me. At the time of draw Richmond Global School management was closed the gates & parents were not allowed to enter the school, I request to gate-man for open the gate, gateman ignore my request, I am just fighting for our right so then I call the Police Control Room & Press Media against violation of RTE-2009.

    After some time came the local Police then gatekeeper open the gate and parents enter the school premise on draw spot, but present parents shocked then the staff there put the chits in a box on their own without showing them to parents. The chits were then drawn from the box by them. Who knows if the chit with their child’s name was even put in or not? During draw some children’s name become twice & three times, parents oppose this bungling then management says “SORRY”. Although a large number of Parents required checking his ward’s name in draw box, but school management ignored the Parents demand. If they were nothing to hide, why not show the child name chit? This is purely a violation of rules.

    Thereafter NDTV reporter Ms Aanchal Vohra came to on the spot but school management deny meeting her. All Parents lodge the FIR in Police Station Miyanwali Nagar, against Richmond Global Public School, Miyanwali Nagar, Rohtak Road, New Delhi-87, & DDE (West-B), Vikash Puri, against serious violation of their Right to Education.

    Therefore, I request you to kindly investigation by fair and independent agency & look into the matter seriously, and take the proper action on these culprit officers.

    Thanking You.

    Yours faithfully,

    (DHARMENDER SINGH)
