The written examination for admissions in various classes of Delhi Public School,Sector 40,on Sunday was marred with controversy with parents alleging the school of charging an ‘unaccounted amount’ of money from them.

Parents were asked to pay Rs 200 as registration fee at the counter,for which a receipt was issued. They were then asked to purchase a prospectus worth Rs 400,for which no receipt was allegedly issued to them.

Sources maintain that when parents objected to the amount mentioned on the receipt,the officer on duty told them to get a new receipt once the test was over. Even after the examination finished,the parents claim they were not issued any receipt for the purchase of the prospectus. “The school should give the due receipt of Rs 600. There is no mention of the Rs 400 charged for the prospectus,” said a parent.

Principal of the school Reema Dewan,meanwhile,denied the entire episode. “I was present in the school and if parents had such a complaint,they could have come to me. So far as I know,no parent was overcharged and the right receipt of Rs 600 was given to them. In fact we ensure that every single penny is accounted for. In case there is an anomaly,I will look into the matter,” she said.
