In a move that will bring respite to the parents, Delhi government has scrapped management and other quotas from private schools. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has cited violation of constitutional provisions, lack of transparency and looming scandal in the admission through the management quotas. It is worthwhile noting that the quotas (25%) that existed for the economically weaker sections will continue.
Announcing the decision taken at a meeting of the state’s cabinet, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal called the management quota the breeding ground for “biggest scandal” in the education sector in the country and said his government will not be a “mute spectator” to it.

Expected outcome of the Government’s actions
Education is ought to be an investment, however, it has too often been a lucrative business which has hurt quality education being made available to all. The Logical Indian commends the Delhi Government in its efforts to take on the exploitative practices of the education mafia and in its efforts to reform the education system of Delhi. Perhaps it could inspire similar actions from other state governments too.
