Ramadheen Inter College of Babuganj in Lucknow had a huge playground, which illegally got converted into a marriage hall. The playground of Yashoda Rastogi Girls Inter College met the same fate. In both the cases, hundreds of children lost access to their school grounds. Teacher federations along with many parents complained to the respective school administrations only to be ignored. Later, a group of secondary teachers filed a complaint with the Education department of the state, after which the District Inspector of Schools (DIOS) carried out an inquiry into this matter. The inquiry found the school administration guilty. A report was filed with the education department of the state but nothing has happened till now. According to the government rules, aided and government schools in the state can not hold any kind of commercial activity on the playgrounds.
