In the recently concluded Winter session, the Delhi Assembly passed two Bills to contain errant private schools in the city. These Bills, when made into Acts, will allow the Delhi government to appoint an independent authority for the annual audit of accounts of all the private schools in the city besides taking penal action against them.
The government will also have powers to prosecute the management if found guilty of taking capitation fee or money in any other form which was not declared at the time of admission.
