Delhi government on Wednesday asked MCD to implement the guidelines quota for students from economically weaker section (EWS) in those primary public schools which have been functioning after getting recognition from the civic body.

The decision was taken at a review meeting chaired by the chief minister Sheila Dikshit with education minister Arvinder Singh, and MCD commissioner K.S. Mehra in attendance.

Dikshit said that the MCD has been told to implement the EWS admission process in true spirit as it is mandatory with enforcement of RTE Act. The MCD has also been instructed to ensure such admissions as necessity of EWS admission is much in respect of the civic body.

The government has further asked the civic agency to furnish a list of violating schools so that action against concerned schools could be initiated.

Dikshit further said that EWS quota is also applicable to minority schools.
