According to the latest updates, Delhi government told the High Court that the nursery admission will begin only after an order is passed on the petition of certain unaided private schools challenging the new admission guidelines and terming it as ‘nationalizing the education system’.
As per earlier regulations passed out this year, the maximum weight-age had been given to neighborhood criteria for which 70 points have been fixed and it constitutes a distance of up to six kilometers from schools.
No management quota in admission to any of the schools, five per cent seats reserved for employees of the school and five per cent for the girls in co-educational schools, which will be filled through, were the changes in admission process.
Like other schools, minority schools will also have to reserve 25% for the economically weaker sections of society. For most of the above parameters, schools have agreed to follow, removing 20% quota is what they weren't ready to implement. Thus, counsel for Delhi government said that nursery admissions would not begin till the court passes an order on the petition of Action Committee Unaided Recognized Private Schools, leading to further delay in the admission process.
