Divya Delhi :The HC had made the observation while hearing a matter that flagged issues of infrastructure and lack of facilities, like furniture and books, in these schools.Options like building a second floor with a "light-gauge steel-framed structure" may be taken into consideration in schools that are space-constrained, after consulting with PWD.The conference minutes state that if there is a lack of classrooms, rooms designated for "sports/NCC/NSS/admission/etc." must be cleared out to make place for classes. "Clubbing" more than one class in a room is not a solution to the space crisis. Additionally, officials have been told to employ "surplus infrastructure in adjoining MCD schools" and search for unoccupied property.Due to a shortage of space, a PIL in the HC in 2022 brought up the problem of irregular courses in government schools in Northeast Delhi.
