Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) came to the rescue of a class 12 student who was denied admit card by a private school for non-payment of fees.
"The boy's mother approached the commission expressing her helplessness to pay the fees as the family was facing severe financial crunch after her husband had passed away following long-term illness," a DCW official said.
"We had summoned the school officials including the Director and Principal and counselled them that a student's life should not be put at stake for lack of money," the official added.
The school authorities gave us a written assurance that they would immediately provide him the admit card and the school also waived off the boy's pending fees, the DCW official said.
