The National Policy on Education lays stress on the radical transformation of the education system to improve quality at all stages since education is the substratum for development of any civilization. Progress of education requires discipline both amongst teachers and taught. In N.C.T. of Delhi, the Directorate of Education is responsible for implementing various laws and Acts relating to education in Delhi. It mainly deals with primary and secondary education in the State. One of its main laws is The Delhi School Education Act, 1973. The primary objective is to provide better organization and development of school education in Delhi. It was enacted more than 33 years ago when there were few government, government-aided and private schools, and exclusive attention was paid to regulation of aided and non-aided schools. However, with rapid expansion of Delhi in its area and population, there has been a dramatic increase in the number of both government and public schools.
