Nursery Admissions Begin In Delhi, Online-Offline Creating Stress
Nursery admissions began on January 1 in over 1,800 private unaided schools in Delhi. But the the parents are still confused about the enrollments under the Economically Weaker Section (EWS) category, which has gone online, this year. According to Press reports, there were so many problems that were faced by parents.
The webpage for online nursery admission crashed just after the sometime of process began. Moreover, the website of Queen’s Mary School in Model Town said ‘hacked’.
The government has made the EWS admission process online only for schools documented under Delhi School Education Act and Rules (DSEAR), 1973. This created misconception between parents in figuring out which schools are following online process and which schools are not.
Nita Vashishth, who came to Modern School, Barakhamba road for her daughter’s admission said, “Not all schools are selling offline forms. We had to personally visit certain schools to know what their process is like. How many schools can you cover in one day?”
The nursery admission process in Delhi schools began on January 1 and will conclude on March 31. While the last date for submitting the applications is January 22, the first list will be out on February 15, followed by another list on February 29.
