On August 18, the International Print Edition of the New York Times published a report on Delhi’s education policy on the front page. In which the education policy of the Delhi government was praised.

The Vigilance Department (DoV) of the Delhi Government has claimed a major scam in the schools of the capital. The department says that while building 2,405 class rooms in 193 government schools in Delhi, the Kejriwal government indulged in rampant corruption. According to the news agency, the report of the 1300 crore scam has been handed over to the Chief Secretary. Along with this, there has also been a demand for its investigation through a government agency.

first know what is the matter
In April 2015, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal directed the PWD to build 2405 extra classrooms in 193 government schools in Delhi. Vigilance conducted a survey to ascertain the need for classroom construction and based on this estimated 7180 Equivalent Classrooms (ECR) to be constructed in 194 schools. Which was three times as compared to 2405 classes.

AAP government suppressed the matter for two and a half years
In a report dated 17 February 2020, the CVC pointed out the corruption in PWD government schools in Delhi. The department had sent the report seeking response from the DoV. But the Aam Aadmi Party government did not take the matter forward for two and a half years. After this, in August 2022, the Delhi LG directed the Chief Secretary to investigate the delay and submit a report.

What was in the DoV report
In the report given by the department, it was told that the rules were violated to reverse the tender process. Along with this, the role of many private people was also exposed. It has been said in the report that Rs 205.45 crore extra was spent in the name of increasing better facilities.
Non-constitutional agencies/individuals (like M/s Babbar & Babbar Associates) were running the administration and framing terms and conditions for the officers. The entire administration was getting these rules followed.

500 crore without giving tender project
The CVC Central Vigilance Commission had received a complaint on 25 August 2019 regarding corruption and cost overrun in classroom construction. The construction cost was increased by up to 90% in the name of better facilities. The Delhi government also approved an increase of Rs 500 crore without tender.

Along with this, it was said that in gross violation of GFR, CPWD Works Manual, incomplete work of poor quality was done.

1214 toilet told classroom
Rs 989.26 crore was given for this project. The tender value was Rs 860.63 crore. A total of Rs 1315.57 crore was spent on the project. Extra work was being done without giving any new tender. This escalated the cost to Rs 326.25 crore, which is 53% more than the sanctioned amount for the tender.

The report also said that 160 toilets were to be built in 194 schools, but 1214 toilets were built by spending an extra Rs 37 crore.

The Delhi government termed these toilets as classrooms and built only 4027 classrooms in 141 schools.
