Delhi govt guidelines for nursery admission
New Delhi: Delhi government on Wednesday issued
guidelines for nursery class admission, giving a greater say
to private schools in framing the procedure and eligibility
criteria for enrolling the children.
Announcing the broad guidelines, Education Minister
Arvinder Singh Lovely said each private school will be free to
frame their guidelines and eligibility criteria for admission
in nursery classes provided they follow the broad contours of
the Right to Education Act.
He said educational qualification and income of the
parents would not rpt not be any basis for admission.
Lovely said the admission process would begin from
January 1, 2011 and will have to be completed by March 31,
The Minister said 25 per cent of the total seats will
have to be reserved for students belonging to Economically
Weaker Sections (EWS) as per RTE Act and rest of the seats
would be open to general category students.
He said that after finalising the admission criteria, the
schools will have to apprise the government about them and
publish them in the media.
Lovely said the decision to allow the private schools
to frame the guidelines was taken after Union HRD Ministry
suggested the same.
"The schools are free to frame their own criteria for
different categories in conformity with the guidelines but
they will have to inform the Directorate of Education with the
details of such criteria and give wide publicity to the same,"
