1. As per our understanding it is required to be filed in Delhi School Tribunal. A petition cannot be filed in CAT as it is for government employees.

2. If the order is passed in favor of petitioner, if the court expenses are asked for in the pleading, then court may grant the same.

3. We need more information on the school (funds, registered under Delhi School Act, etc.) to ascertain whether an RTI can be filed or not.
