The school was in news last year as well for the same reason. However, undeterred by the criticism the school has again hit the headlines for this obvious reason. 'It is our way of motivating people to have less children. We are ready to take all the media gagging for the sake of our country. We are not afraid. Criticising those who take bold initiatives has become a norm these days,' said Chairperson of the Salwan Group to leading daily DNA.
In response to this, Atishi Marlena, advisor to Delhi deputy chief minister and education minister Manish Sisodia has said to the leading daily, 'Strict action will be taken against any school for setting such unjustified criteria.'
Atishi Marlena took to twitter, Delhi government's initiative for checking financial malpractices and fee hikes in 1700 private schools functioning in the city.

Since last year, among the major unjustified outrageous criteria that have been omitted from the admission norms, include points for proficiency of parents in extra co-curricular activities like music, sports; parental education, financial status of parents, points for working parents, proficiency of the child in extra co curricular activities, permanent residency in Delhi, language skills, etc.
