The Stay on admission process at the Bishop’s School and the St Mary’s School will continue as the hearing held to decide the fate of the schools on Thurday turned out to be inconclusive.

“Both the schools are yet to give information sought by the inquiry officer. Hence,we could not arrive at any decision today,” said D Kurhade,ZP education officer,“The schools have been asked to submit the documents by Monday. After studying the documents,we will arrive at a decision,” he added.

Activist Nilesh Borate,a complainant in both the cases,said,“The hearing will be held till the time school do not submit documents. The documents include the number of application received,applications approved and the criteria adopted to shortlist applications.”

One of the schools had sought permission to continue the admission process for seats other than 25% reserved for EWS students.

Kurhade said,“St Mary’s School had appealed to lift the ban on 75 per cent admissions not covered under quota. But we refused as they are yet to provide documents sought by our inquiry officer.”

“The inquiry into Bishop’s School case is yet to be over. They were summoned to reply to the inquiry officer and not for the hearing.” The parent of a child,who had applied for admission to St Mary’s School,said,“I have no idea about admission of my child. Monday is supposed to be their last working day. The school administration said they are not aware when the admissions will re-start. We are in a dilemma now.”
