The court issued the direction during the hearing of a plea filed by a parent, through advocate Ashok Agarwal, contending that the senior secondary school in Bhati Mines had only a temporary roof and lacked basic infrastructure.
Petitioner Bazi Ram had said the classrooms were made of temporary pre-fabricated material with tin roof and there was lack of furniture for students to sit and study. He has also said that the school had around 1933 students.
However, the Delhi government has said that construction of a permanent structure for the school in Bhati Mines cannot be done without the forest department's nod as it was located within the notified forest land around Asola-Bhati wildlife sanctuary.
It also said that a piece of land at Asola, about three km away from the present school premises, has been allotted for opening of the new government school which may be expedited as a permanent solution to the problem.
The court has now fixed the matter for further hearing on August 3.
