KIND ATTENTION: Parents Supporting SAES and others or staying neutral, here are some crucial contradictory points submitted by SAES in its reply to the petition filed by the 9 petitioner parents before the Delhi High Court:
- Nov-Dec 2014 – Discussions were held to expand Mirambika Research Centre and to have a College and a School.
- 19th January 2015 – The decision to have degree/diploma courses was ratified in the SAES Executive Council meeting.
- 19th February 2015 – Applications for No objection Certificate (NOC) were submitted to the Delhi Govt for B. Ed , M. Ed, B. Com and B. Tech courses.
The B. Tech NOC application was filed as a part of the application process to AICTE. According to AICTE guidelines, no other non technical courses can run alongside the B. Tech course. Therefore, with this application, the SAES made it certain that the school can no more run in the Mirambika Building.
- 25th Feb. 2015 – Final B. Tech course affiliation application was submitted online by SAES to AICTE. Therefore, on 19th January 2015 itself, SAES knew that the school can’t run in the Mirambika Building, where it had been since 1991 because as per AICTE norms (stated clearly in the AICTE Handbook and Approval Letter attached below), no non technical courses can run alongside a B. Tech course.
Thus, by SAES’s own deliberate act, legally speaking, the school was removed from its 25 year old campus on 19th January 2015 itself.
After the point no. 4 set above, which talks of the event on 25th Feb., 2015, the SAES’s reply adds this very crucial point:
- After this – The DDA threat was brought to the notice of the Management, by Mr. Ashok Acharya. Thus, the non existent cause of DDA threat to justify an act that had already been committed by the SAES was fraudulently presented by SAES to the parents some time in March 2015 and to deliberately confuse the matter help of the protesting parents was sought to obtain clarification from the DDA.
