All Your Questions About DoE Guidelines On Delhi Nursery Admissions, Answered!

After weeks of waiting for the news, 298 unaided schools built on DDA land in Delhi have finally started their nursery admission process. Once the seats are first filled with the candidates satisfying the neighbourhood criteria, the remaining seats will be offered to those residing within the 1-3 kilometre radius. If there are seats vacant after the neighbourhood criteria, sibling category and 1-3 kilometre radius selection are applied, the school will consider these applicants. The remaining 1,400 schools are free to decide the criteria and their points for admission but they will have to steer clear from a list of 51 criterion, which the government had abolished last year.

This is the moment thousands of parents across Delhi have been waiting for. After weeks of waiting for the news, 298 unaided schools built on DDA land in Delhi have finally started their nursery admission process. They will now begin receiving applications for the academic year 2017-18. The Directorate of Education announced the new guidelines that these schools need to follow. Everyone has questions about the process and it can be quite confusing. We have sailed in the same boat and so we now make it easier for you! What do the DoE guidelines mean? We answer them all!

Who is eligible for admission based on the new guidelines?

  • If you’re living within a 1-kilometre radius of the school, you will get first preference based on the neighbourhood criteria.

  • If you apply in the sibling category and you are eligible under the neighbourhood range the school shall first give admission to kids whose siblings are already a part of the school.

What percentage of seats does this account for?

This will account for 75% of the total number of seats. The remaining 25% will be reserved for those applying under the EWS (Economically Weaker Sections) category, as per the usual norms.

What happens if I am outside the 1-kilometre radius?

Once the seats are first filled with the candidates satisfying the neighbourhood criteria, the remaining seats will be offered to those residing within the 1-3 kilometre radius.

Are we eligible if we reside outside the 6-kilometre mark?

If there are seats vacant after the neighbourhood criteria, sibling category and 1-3 kilometre radius selection are applied, the school will consider these applicants.

When do these guidelines come into effect?

The schools will start accepting applications starting today.

We fall under the General (EWS ) Category, will we get our allotment based on these guidelines too?

Each school has to declare the total number of seats that have been kept aside under this category. These seats will be separate from the neighbourhood criteria seats and as per the guidelines laid down by the Department of Education. Refer the DOE website for more details.

When does the admission process close?

As per the latest information, the schools will accept applications until 31 Jan 2017.

What about the Management Quota? Is it in effect this year?

The Management Quota has been squashed this year. So no one can apply under that this year.

Will the other schools that are not on DDA land also follow these criteria?

The remaining 1,400 schools are free to decide the criteria and their points for admission but they will have to steer clear from a list of 51 criterion, which the government had abolished last year.

Questions among parents after the new guidelines:

  • What is the clarity on the first child- satisfying the neighbourhood criteria? Are they at an advantage?
  • Is the distance measured on the basis of the main branch or the feeder branch?
  • What about areas where there aren’t enough schools- and parents opt for schools in other areas?
