Delhi’s pre-schools asked to submit report on admissions
All play schools, pre-schools and pre-primary schools running on land allotted by Delhi government have been asked to submit a report on admissions undertaken by them in the last three years within two weeks or face the prospect of cancellation of their lease deeds.
“Chairpersons/Presidents of the societies are directed to submit the compliance report for admission of EWS category for the last three years within two weeks from the date of receipt of this order,” a Delhi government circular issued on Thursday said.
“Non-compliance of the orders shall be viewed seriously and the same may be brought to the notice of DDA/Land Owing Agencies for cancellation of lease deed of the land of the society/trust,” it added.
Deputy CM Manish Sisodia had earlier this week issued directives for <g data-gr-id="23">implementation</g> of 25 per cent quota in all play schools running on land allocated by government agencies or Delhi Development Authority.
“Schools will be required to display this information on notice boards as well as on their websites. The notice boards should be placed at places where they are visible to more public,” the Delhi government had said.
“Schools cannot charge the EWS quota students any fee for registration or prospectus... If they are not able to admit any applicant under the quota the schools will be required to give an explanation for the same,” it added.
Regarding rules for <g data-gr-id="26">distance</g> of play school from applicant’s residence, the government said the norms detailed under Right to Education (RTE) Act for entry level classes will be followed.
