Sealed schools in Ahmedabad to be allowed to reopen for a few hours

  • They were sealed for lack of BU permission, fire safety NOC; AMC to take off seal for some time to allow them to collect records required for preparing grade 10 mark sheets

Ahmedabad: Students of around 25 schools in Ahmedabad that had recently been sealed for lack of building use (BU) permission and fire safety NOC can heave a sigh of relief. The Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) has allowed the seals to be removed temporarily for a few hours to allow school authorities to take out documents that may be required to prepare mark sheets of grade 10 students. Further details will be revealed later.

The relaxation will be given for four-five hours, according to AMC officials. Once the documents have been retrieved, the premises will be sealed again. The remaining work related to preparation of the mark sheets will have to be done elsewhere.

Devang Dani, chairman of the Town Planning Committee of AMC, said, “There are more than 25 schools in Ahmedabad that had been sealed for not having BU permission or fire safety NOC. The process of preparing mark sheets for class 10 has started. Those schools that had been sealed had made a representation seeking time to take out records required to prepare the mark sheets. Hence, the seal will be taken off for four-five hours only to allow the authorities to take the relevant documents. Once that is done, the schools will be sealed again.” He added that once the records had been retrieved, the schools would have to carry out the remaining work elsewhere.

Following the directive of the Gujarat High Court, the AMC had launched a drive to crack down on units without BU permission or fire safety NOC. Under this drive, it had sealed over two dozen schools in the city.

Recently, the state government had announced mass promotion for regular students of class 10. The results will be prepared on the basis of the students’ performance in class 9 and in the internal exams of class 10. To facilitate this, it has been decided to allow authorities of the sealed schools to collect the relevant records of the students.
