Interviews for the posts of primary teachers at Gurukul Global School,IT Park,was marred by controversy on Friday with some applicants alleging that the school was charging ‘undue’ money from them.

The school had organised a walk-in interview for which around 50 applicants had appeared.

“We were asked to pay Rs 100 for a form that was required to be filled up with various details such as address,educational qualifications etc. No receipt was,however,given for the same,” said one of the applicants. “It seems like the school has devised a new way of minting money. Since the school did not give a receipt,we cannot hold anybody accountable,” rued another teacher.

Denying that any such incident took place,school principal Aruna Bhardwaj said: “This is not true. The applicants should have asked for a receipt. They must have forgotten to ask for the receipt but there were some who have got the receipt. We are not deny taking money as they are service charges. We had invited experts for the interview who were ‘entertained’ by the school and the money was charged for that.”
