Delhi government has warned private schools of action for not submitting status reports of nursery admissions. “It is regretted to inform that many private unaided recognized schools have not uploaded the status of admissions on the department’s website despite the directions issued time and again in this regard,” Directorate of Education (DoE) said in a letter to private schools.
“The non-compliance of the order has been taken very seriously. Non-submission of the details by April 8 shall lead to necessary action under the provisions of Delhi School Education Act and Rules,” it added.
The nursery admission process began from January 1 and was to conclude by March 31. Since the schools are yet to complete the process under the first list of draw of lots, the admissions have stretched beyond the stipulated time.
According to DoE officials, the second draw of lots will be conducted once the department is aware of the status of vacant seats.
In February, about 26,600 entry level seats in private schools were alloted through computerised draws under the EWS category, an experiment introduced by Delhi government for the first time. DoE had received over 73,059 applications for admissions to nursery, UKG and Class 1 against the total numbers of 28,193 seats.
