New Delhi: The Delhi High Court has directed private unaided and government schools like Kendriya Vidyalayas to supply gadget/equipment of optimum configuration as well as internet package so that EWS/DG (economically weaker sections/disadvantaged groups) students have access to online learning. The court clarified that the cost of such gadget – digital equipment as well as internet package – are not a part of tuition fee and have to be provided free of cost to the EWS/DG students by private unaided schools and government schools. A bench of Justices Manmohan and Sanjeev Narula noted that absence of such facilities prevent children from pursuing elementary education. Notably, the court was hearing a PIL filed by NGO Justice for All, represented by advocate Khagesh Jha, seeking directions to the Centre and the Delhi government to provide free laptops, tablets or mobile phones to poor kids so
