Schools directed not to ask domicile certificate

But parents still face problems during admission of their children


Jasleen Kaur | January 11, 2012

Private schools have been asked not to insist that parents produce domicile certificate, attested copies of birth certificate of their children during admissionss. This has come as a relief for parents seeking admission for their children in private schools under the 25% reservation for economically weaker section (EWS). But education minister Arvinder Singh said income certificate and address proof are essential to avail benefits.

The department has received 137 complaints from parents relating to refusal to issue or accept EWS forms. In certain cases parents were asked to submit attested certificates. There have been cases of schools charging more for admission forms by attaching it with the prospectus. Many schools violated the admission schedule and guidelines of the directorate of education.

The minister said the number of complaints received this year is less than last year’s 642 complaints. And half of these complaints have already been attended to and rests will be sorted out soon.

EWS forms can also be submitted in respective districts and in the office of the deputy director. He said that government has assured that no child would be denied admission.

The admission process started on January 2 and will end on January 16. The department of education under the Delhi government will review vacant EWS seats in all schools of the city on March 31 after which the vacant seats in the EWS quota will be advertised freshly.
