The Delhi High Court on Friday granted time to the parents of students studying at the Aurobindo Ashram-run Mirambika Free School to file their objections, after the Directorate of Education (DoE) submitted an inspection report stating that the school did not have fire-safety clearance. However, the report did not find any problems with a kitchen being run on the premises.

The report stated that the school began the process of getting fire safety clearance only on July 8. The science and computer labs, which are on the second floor, have not been made operational after the shift since an NOC has not yet been obtained from the Fire department.

The report, however, did not find fault with the kitchen and dining area being run in the building. Raising objections to this, parents have claimed that the DoE had “ignored the safety hazards” in the building.

“The kitchen is a commercial one with LPG and CNG pipes. It is a fire hazard,” argued the lawyer for the parents. The report stated that the principal had told the inspection team that the kitchen was “temporary”.

The court allowed Advocate Gopal Sankarnarayanan to submit the objections in writing. The DoE will then file its response.
