Delhi Government has directed principals of all private unaided recognised schools not to refuse admission to EWS category children on “unjustified grounds” including that of distance.
“It has come to notice that private schools are refusing admission to the EWS and DG category children selected in the computerised draw of lots on unjustified grounds. It has also been reported that some schools are not entertaining the selected children for completing the admission formalities,” the Directorate of Education (DoE) said in a communication to schools.
“It is directed that schools shall not refuse to grant admission to the children on the ground of distance range. They should also satisfactorily attend the selected applicants and complete the admissions formalities appropriately,” it added.
The schools have also been directed to wait for the selected applicants to report till the last date which is February 22.
