In a bid to improve "public perception", the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) has renamed its schools from Nagar Palika schools to "Atal Adarsh Vidyalaya". A decision in this regard was taken earlier this week by the civic body and a resolution was passed accordingly.
"In order to increase the number of enrolments in NDMC schools and improve public perception, we have passed a resolution to change the names of all Nagar Palika schools to Atal Adarsh Vidyalaya from the 2019-20 academic session," NDMC's Education Director RP Gupta said. There are 31 schools run by the civic body.
