'Parents in unclean job?' Haryana govt asks students

Haryana chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar presiding over a cabinet meeting in Chandigarh on Wednesday

On the other hand, the state Education Department has clarified that the form is meant to ensure that every student in every school of Haryana is enabled to receive full benefit of schemes of Centre and State Government.

The 100-point admission form also asked whether parents have any genetic disorder, along with a long list. Senior Congress leader R.S. Surjewala yesterday slammed the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led state government after schools had recently released the controversial admission forms.

The state government forms for the pre-matriculation scholarships asking parents of the students to detail whether they were engaged in "dirty jobs" kicked off a controversy.

The spokesman said that "the school admission form is meant to ensure that every student is enabled to receive full benefit of every scheme of Government of India and Government of Haryana directly in her account in case such benefit is monetary".

Parents said that asking details of religion and caste is appalling.

He clarified that Aadhaar number of the student seeking admission is not mandatory. "The particular adjective (unclean occupation) was in the vogue ever since the scholarship scheme was launched in 2009.The scholarship scheme was launched for the benefit of children of parents engaged in unclean occupations like scavenging, tanning and flaying", a state government spokesperson clarified.

He added that those raising objection to yet another initiative of the Haryana Government to ensure that benefits of all schemes reach "unto the last" in the spirit of Antoyodaya is nothing but an instance of petty mindedness. Surjewala criticized the government blaming that the students are going to labelled as untouchables based on the occupation of their parents being unclean. While private schools in Gurgaon have made it clear to students that the information in the form is being sought by the state education department, parents are reluctant to share data which they say invades their privacy.
