New Delhi: The Delhi Government Tuesday notified the schedule for nursery admissions in the national capital, which will begin from January 1 with no deviation from the earlier process.

The Directorate of Education has also asked private, unaided recognised schools to not process the admission of Economically Weaker Section/Disadvantaged Group category students manually as the department is in the process of developing a module for online admission under the category.

"Admission schedule for entry level classes for open seats in pvt schools issued today. Process to start on 1st Jan 2016. Schools have to declare admission criteria which shall be well defined, non-discriminatory, unambiguous & transparent (sic)," Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said in a series of posts on Twitter.

Sisodia, who is also the education minister, said that in order to ensure transparency the list uploaded by the schools will include names of applicants who have been admitted as well as waitlisted students along with marks given.

The admission process which will begin from January 1 will conclude on March 31.

While the last date for submitting the application is January 22, the first list will be displayed on February 15 followed by another list on February 29.
