The Division Bench of Chief Justice of DN Patel and Justice Prateek Jalan noted that there’s no reason to further monitor the action of the Delhi Government after perusing the status report wherein it was mentioned that 225 orphan children have already been given admission in the private as well as government schools. The order has come in a PIL filed by Mr Harpal Singh Rana seeking a direction to be issued to the Delhi Government to include orphan children in the Economically Weaker Section (EWS) category for the purpose of getting admissions in schools. The Petitioner had demanded the Delhi Government to produce a detailed scheme on the education, living, and other prospects for orphan children. In addition to this, the Petitioner had asked for providing financial assistance to those persons who look after orphan children. The status report submitted by the Delhi Government stated that apart from providing admission in schools, the orphans have also been provided with employment in various sectors, including hospitality, teaching and in non-governmental organisations. The Delhi Government also informed the court that the concerns of the orphan children are already addressed by schemes such as Child Protection Services Scheme and the Integrated Child Development Scheme. After taking these submissions into consideration, the court noted that there’s no need to further monitor this petition. Case Title: Harpal Singh Rana v.
