285 Delhi schools on govt land told not to start nursery admissions
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”.
For the remaining 1,400 schools, the nursery admission process will begin January 2.
“It has come to the notice of the department that some of these schools have issued the admission notice to start the admission process from January 2, 2017 in violation of the directions,” said a circular from the DOE.
