A day after the Delhi government issued showcause notices to the Rohini and Pitampura branches of Maxfort School, authorities have decided to approach the Lieutenant Governor to present their case.
Stating that the L-G was “impartial” and “the ultimate authority” to decide matters, the school said it would send its representation to him.
The government had issued notices to the two schools, alleging violations under the DSEAR Act, and asked the school to respond within 15 days as to why the education department shouldn’t “take over their management”.

A statement issued by the school stated, “The contents of the showcause notice are absolutely false, frivolous and misconceived. The school shall be replying to the same to the satisfaction of the Hon’ble Lieutenant Governor of Delhi. The school, at various points of time, has fully cooperated with all inspection committees of the Directorate of Education (DoE) and has supplied and/or produced whatever documents they desired. The notice shows the pre-determined resolve of the government, as it has been issued without first calling upon the school to rectify the alleged deficiencies that are purported to have been found during inspections.”
