The director general of school education (DGSE) had released Rs1.14 crore for construction of the building in October 2013, following directions from the Punjab State Human Rights Commission.

School principal Reena Sharma said Rs 57 lakh were received in 2013 which was deposited in the accounts of public works department as it is agency to construct government building above Rs 50 lakhs .

 Executive engineer Surindar Singh said   that fifty percent construction work has been completed and the finance department has not released remaining grant as a result work came to stand still.
