'Book 25 pc seats for EWS in nursery or face action'

Delhi government on Tuesday warned of punitive action against private schools which fail to comply with guidelines for reserving 25 per cent of total nursery seats for the economically weaker sections.

“All the schools will have to strictly comply with the government directive for reserving seats for the economically weaker section, failing which action will follow,” education minister Arvinder Singh Lovely said replying to a question on the issue.

Assuring the parents of tiny tots, he said government would ensure that each and every child gets admission in nursery class.
