Few schools come out with candidates list

Only 20-25 schools in the national capital have come out with the list of candidates who have applied for nursery admission under the general category.

According to a circular issued by Directorate of Education (DoE) on December 8, 2015, all the schools had to upload the details of children who had applied for the nursery admissions by January 30.

However, a day after, only a handful out of a total of 1,737 schools had adhered to the directions.

With parents worried whether their ward’s application has been successfully registered or not, experts say that many schools are adopting wait and watch policy as the plea against scraping of management quota is to be heard on Monday.

The Delhi government had scrapped 62 “arbitrary and discriminatory” criteria listed by schools on their websites for admissions, along with management quota and retained only the quota for Economically Weaker Sections (EWS).

Terming the Aam Aadmi Party’s order “illegal”, the school associations had challenged it and had contended that the government cannot take away their autonomy with regard to nursery admissions when the same has been upheld by the High Court and the Supreme Court earlier. The hearing is to resume on Monday.

“Schools are waiting for a judgment in this case and that is why not coming out with the lists. But the number of candidates registered will not change due to the court order. So they should not adopt this wait and watch policy,” said education activist Sumit Vohra, who is also the founder of nurseryadmissions.com, an online portal representing parent community.

Schools like DPS, Shri Ram, Bluebells International School in Kailash Colony, Ahlcon Public School, Nirmal Bhartiya, have uploaded the list on their respective websites.

According to the schedule set by the DoE for the nursery admission, the schools have to upload the marks as per their point system of each child by February 5, following which the first and the second list of selected candidates will be uploaded by 15 and 29 February respectively.
