The Directorate of Education (DOE) has warned of action if school on government land starts the nursery admission process from January 2 next year. 

The order applies to 285 schools such as Delhi Public School, Vasant Kunj, Vasant Valley and Apeejay. 

The government had on December 19 issued a circular saying it will release a separate set of guidelines and schedule for these 285 schools. The new set of rules is to make schools comply with land allotment terms. 

The terms state that schools running on government land will not refuse admission to residents of the “locality”. It says “the society shall undertake to admit 75% of the students of the neighbourhood or from the locality in which the school is located”.

पब्लिक स्कूलों की दो टूक, स्कूल ही निर्धारित करेंगे दाखिला प्वॉइंट

नर्सरी दाखिले में सरकार को कोर्ट जाने की चेतावनी 

नर्सरीदाखिले को लेकर राजधानी के पब्लिक स्कूलों की ओर से दो टूक कहा गया है कि दाखिले में स्कूलों द्वारा जो प्वॉइंट सिस्टम निर्धारित किए जाएंगे, उसी पर दाखिले होंगे, वरना न्यायालय के दरवाजे खुले हैं। स्कूलों ने शिक्षा मंत्री मनीष सिसोदिया के साथ हाल ही में हुई बैठक के बाद केवल एक किलोमीटर और घर से स्कूल की दूरी के आधार पर दाखिला प्वॉइंट निर्धारित करने के आदेश दिए थे। इसके अलावा सिंगल चाइल्ड, सिबलिंग, गर्ल चाइल्ड, एलुमिनी आदि क्राइटेरिया के प्वाइंट नर्सरी दाखिले से हटाने के लिए कहा था। 

दिल्ली के प्राइवेट और एनएडेड स्कूलों की लीगल संस्था एक्शन कमेटी के अध्यक्ष एसके भट्टाचार्य ने बताया कि पब्लिक स्कूल अपनी शैक्षणिक गुणवत्ता में सुधार और उनके संचालन के लिए स्वायत्त हैं। सभी स्कूलों पर संसद द्वारा निर्धारित दिल्ली एजुकेशन एक्ट का अनुसरण अनिवार्य है। एक्ट के नियम 145 में साफ लिखा है कि स्कूल के मुखिया को यह नियम निर्धारित करने का अधिकार है कि दाखिले कैसे करने हैं? इसके लिए वह स्वतंत्र है। नर्सरी दाखिले पर गांगुली कमेटी ने जो फार्मूला बनाया था, …

Nursery Admissions: No Aadhaar Enrolment in Mohali, Parents Harassed

With the commencement of nursery admissions in schools, parents are facing a lot of harassment as schools are asking them to get their children’s Aadhaar cards made, but the sewa kendras in SAS Nagar have stopped making Aadhar cards. Earlier, Aadhaar cards were being made at MC Bhawan, Sector 68, and in DC office, but the process has stopped since September when more than 1000 employees of suwidha centre went on strike demanding regular jobs and protesting against state government’s decision to shift them to sewa kendras, which are being run by a private company. Though the staff has been recruited at the sewa kendra but notices have been pasted on the counter, stating that Aadhaar cards are not being made, thus leading to harassment of parents. “I have to get my daughter admitted to nursery and the school is asking for her Aadhaar card. I have no clue where Aadhaar cards are being made now. I am told that an agent charges `250 to `500 for making Aadhaar card,” said Ajay Kapoor, employed…
