The nursery admission process for open seats in private unaided schools in Delhi will begin on January 2, with Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia asking these institutes to maintain transparency in the whole procedure and fees charged.
“Delhi government has just two expectations from private schools - transparency in nursery admission process and fixation of fees on the basis of real expenses of schools. They should not earn profit from it,” he said on Tuesday at an event organised at a private school.
Delhi government’s directorate of education has released a detailed schedule for 2017-18 session, as per which the last date of submitting application forms of nursery class admission for 2017 is January 23.
The first list of selected children, along with marks secured by them, will be out on February 15. The second list will be out on February 28 and the nursery admission process will conclude on March 31.
Twenty-five per cent seats in pre-school, pre-primary and Class I will be reserved for economically weaker sections/disadvantaged groups (EWS/DG). The directorate has instructed all private schools to upload their criteria (with points for each criterion) for admission in open seats, on its official website by January 1.
Sisodia, who also holds the education portfolio, assured private schools of government’s cooperation, if these institutes are transparent regarding admission and fees charged, but warned of “stern action” if they charge fees “arbitrarily”.
He also lauded private schools for providing good quality of education and infrastructure and added that the government will provide the same in schools run by it.
