ews admission process beyond march 31: delhi education news
New Delhi: The last date for seeking admission inDelhi schools is March 31, 2012. However, to ensure that seats reserved for students from Economically Weaker Section (EWS), are occupied completely, the Delhi Government has decided to keep the admission process open for them beyond the last date.
Arvinder Singh Lovely, Education Minister Delhi said that once the admission process is complete, they will hold a review meeting to locate vacant seats in schools. Those seats will then be advertised so that parents get their children admitted.
This is the first time that such move has been taken to ensure that all the seats under EWS quota are being filled, even after the admission process is over.
As per the Delhi Government notification, a child will be considered under EWS category if his/her parents' income from all sources is less than Rs.1 lakh per annum and residing in Delhi for the past three years.
Admission for EWS candidates will be done through lottery system, which will also be video recorded for ensuring the fairness of the process.
