Delhi Directorate of Education (DOE) has given the management committee of Ramjas School, Anand Parbat, 15 days time to take action against the principal Sandhya Bindal for alleged breach of conduct. The order from the government comes in the light of protest from teachers, students and parents against Bindal, where there were allegations of verbal abuse and misbehavior against students and teachers.

Students and teachers have been protesting against the principal since May. On Monday the parents and teachers met Education Minister Manish Sisodia and students protested and blocked the highway near the school. The DOE has also said that if the management committee does not send an action taken compliance report within 15 days, action will be taken against the school under Section 24 of Delhi School Education Rules 1973.

This section mentions that if the school management committee fails to comply with the order from DOE, they can stop aid, withdraw recognition, or except in the case of a minority school, take over of the school.

The order issued Thursday, adds that the committee constituted by DOE earlier to examine the complaint has found Bindal guilty of several charges. The committee consisted of two vice principals of government school. The report also mentions that the principal adopted highly discriminatory attitude towards fee defaulter students. Bindal and members of the management committee could not be reached for comment.

    Light at the end of the tunnel. Justice needs to be delivered at the earliest to the students teachers and parents. We request the members of the management to initiate immediate action against the person who has manipulated endlessly for self gain not bothering about anyone associated with the school. It's essential that the teachers and the taught enter the esteemed ins ution confidently with dignity and pride.

      Quick action must be taken against Sandhya Bindal she must be suspended immediately. She is not a right candidate for the post of prin l, she doesn't deserve to be a teacher even, because she doesn't have any morals or ethics to be a teacher. I was her student in 2001, since day one she has been harassing students. I was also harassed by her to the extent that I was afraid of going to school. She is a criminal minded person and finds pleasure in torturing and harassing people. It is a black day in the history of RAMJAS FOUNDATION that our teachers who all are pioneers in their field are sitting outside the school on protest due to harrasment by Sandhya Bindal. Really disheartening to know that POLICE has been a frequent visitor to the school campus. Parents of students are implicated in false cases by Sandhya Bindal, she forces students to file fake complaints in police against the parents who do not fall in line as per her wishes. Please save our school

        Sad that since past 2 months, more than 90 of the school staff had been protesting outside the school against the criminal minded prin l, and yet no speedy action taken yet. Not only teachers, but also students and parents had been victimised by her since long. There had been many grievances filed, but no redressal!

          Wow.. may the justice be done at the soonest and students, teachers and parents get back to normal life as soon as possible. If such masses are coming in front and protesting then definitely the one blamed here must be removed / terminated at the earliest. Waiting to see the fair decision taken
