Schools to release nursery admission criteria today

Govt has started admission process 15 days early for the 2019-20 session

Acting on instructions by the Directorate of Education (DoE), all private schools are scheduled to upload their criteria for admission in open seats, on their official websites, by Friday.

The Delhi government has started the entire admission process 15 days early for the 2019-20 session.

“Schools have been given autonomy to come up with their own points system as long as they stay away from a list of 62 abolished criteria and adopt criteria for admission which shall be fair, reasonable, well-defined, equitable, non-discriminatory, unambiguous and transparent,” the DoE said

First list on February 4

The admission process for nearly 1,600 private schools will begin on December 15, with the government imposing an upper age limit from this year.

The last date for submitting forms is January 7, 2019.

“The first list of selected children, along with marks secured by them, will be out on February 4. The second list will be out on February 21 and the nursery admission process will conclude on March 31,” a circular released by the DOE stated.

Admission for EWS/DG-category seats for the academic session 2019-20 will be notified later and 25% seats in pre-school, pre-primary and Class I will be reserved for the category.

The DoE said that some of the indicative documents, which can be considered as proof of residence of parents/child are ration card/smart card issued in the name of parents (mother/father having name of child), domicile certificate of child or of his/her parents, voter-id card (EPIC) of any of the parents, electricity bill/MTNL telephone bill/water bill, passport in the name of any of the parents or child and Aadhaar card/UID card issued in the name of any of the parents.

The DoE also said that parents can be charged only ₹25 as admission registration fee, which is non-refundable.

The purchase of prospectus of the school by the parents shall be optional.
