KOCHI: The Kerala High Court on Friday issued notices to the Chief Secretary and the Director of Higher Secondary Education on the petitions filed by school managers seeking contempt of court action against the state government for not complying with the court order in the Plus-II batch allotment case.

Justice P R Ramachandra Menon also directed them to file an affidavit. The court had directed the state government to ensure that schools recommended by a six-member committee headed by the Director of Higher Secondary Education are treated as eligible for starting Plus-II courses and additional batches this year.

The petitioners submitted that though the Division Bench of the High Court had upheld the order of the Single Judge, the government failed to take any action.

According to the managers, their schools were recommended for granting Plus-II courses by the six-member committee. The court had held that no school other than those recommended by the six-member committee should be given sanction to function.

Also, the Director of Higher Secondary Education shall give provisional sanction to function forthwith, subject to the conditions stipulated in the government order dated July 31.

Following the court order, the petitioners forwarded the list of students and requested the Chief Secretary and the Director of HSE to issue sanction order for the course. But, they failed to take action.  Hence the contempt of court petition was filed, the petitioners submitted.
