AAP govt scraps management quota in nursery admissions

News

New Delhi, Jan 7: In an attempt to end "discrimination" during admission in private unaided schools, the Delhi government on Wednesday ordered such schools to scrap the management quota. It also struck down 62 debatable criteria, against which some schools had been awarding seats, for selecting the students.

The order is likely to hit a legal hurdle and may end up delaying the ongoing nursery admission process.

Claiming that certain schools were providing as much as 75% reservation under various categories, CM Arvind Kejriwal said only 25% quota for economically weaker sections (EWS), as mandated by the Right to Education Act, would now be permitted.
