Nursery admissions from Jan 1Times of India14-December-2012New Delhi:The Delhi government has announced a fixed schedule for this years nursery admissions to more than 1,200 private, unaided schools in the city, unlike last years flexible calendar.The admission process begins on January 1 and ends on March 30, 2013. The last datefor submission of forms is January 15 and schools have to post the first list by February 15. The second list should be out by February 28, said a Directorate of Education release. In a first, orphans have been put in the disadvantaged category, which makes them eligible for the 25% quota. Other guidelines remain the same. Forms to be sold till last date Schools Cannot Deviate From Sale Schedule, Move To Benefit ParentsEarlier, the admission dates were only indicative. Schools could write to the department and change dates and that would lead to confusion, said Amit Singla, director, Education.The guidelines also state that schools will have to ensure admission applications are made available to all applicants till the last date of submission of applications. This will benefit parents as they will have more time for the application process. There were schools that had distributed forms for less than a week last year.The EWS admissions will take place the way they did last year with a common form and schools submitting the number of vacancies after the first round of admissions to the directorate by April 6.Candidates applying under the orphans category would need to produce a certificate declaring them orphans. Till recently there was no agency authorized to issue such a certificate. That has been fixed.The department of women and child development has, through an order dated December 11, 2012, authorized all child welfare committees (CWC) to issue certificate declaring a child orphanunder Delhi Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Rules, 2009 after necessary inquiry.Ajay Singh, chairman, CWC Dilshad Garden, welcomed the move to include this category but objected to the term orphan which, he felt bore an negative connotation. He preferred child without parental support.The guidelines remain the same in practically every other respect. A February notification directing schools to have as many seats at the entry level as the highest number in the last three years still remains applicable. And schools are free to adopt any system draw of lots or points system for admitting and are also free to decide on the criteria thatll be awarded points.SOME BABY STEPS, SOME PITFALLSNursery admission scheduleAdmission forms availableJan 1-15, 2013Last date of submissionJan 15Last date for displaying list of selected applicants (including EWS and disadvantaged group categories, waiting list)Feb 15Last date for second list Feb 28 (if any)Closing of admissionsMar 30 CHANGES ANNOUNCED 1 Provision allowing deviation from schedule withdrawn 2 Department of women and child development has authorized all child welfare committees to issue a certificate declaring a child orphan in terms of Rules 2(k) of Delhi Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Rules, 2009, after necessary inquiry.
