According to an affidavit, the South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) submitted in the high court that near about 1,192 out of 1,540 of the educators' posts that teach the students with disabilities are lying vacant in the schools under the Capital's three civic bodies.
The affidavit was in response to the petition filed by an advocate of the NGO Social Jurist against the civic bodies and others for not filling up the vacant posts. Officials and principals at several schools under the civic bodies have informed that they have been struggling in the absence of the special educators.
