Directorate of Education to be strict on nursery admission rules

Times of India, 02 December 2009

The Directorate of Education (DoE) is in no mood to spare schools which have flouted nursery admission rules this year. DoE on Tuesday issued a notice to Mount Carmel School in Anand Niketan for starting the sale of admission forms earlier than scheduled.

DoE has directed all schools to issue forms between December 15 and January 15 with any change of schedule allowed only within this period. However, Mount Carmel started the sale of forms from December 1.

A senior DoE official, who did not wish to be named, said: "We have issued a notice to Mount Carmel as it was flouting the schedule prescribed by DoE. We have instructed the additional director to take action as and when any school tries to follow its own schedule." He added, "Minority schools have some special rules but they still have to follow the admission guidelines issued by the directorate."

School principal V K Williams confirmed receiving the DoE notice. "We had informed the DoE about our schedule a month ago. The school is breaking for Christmas on December 21. So we wanted to release the forms from December 1," he said. "We will now reply to the notice," he added.

DoE had earlier cracked the whip on three branches of Bal Bharati School at Ganga Ram Hospital Marg, Dwarka and Rohini for the same reason. Starting in October last week, these schools had completed the online receipt of application by November 6. But after DoE issued the notices, the schools postponed the release of the list of selected candidates till February.
