In order to streamline the admission process in
Delhi-government schools for class VI from municipal schools, the Delhi
government has decided to hand over admission slips to the students.
As a part of the "planned admissions" process,
children who studied in municipal schools till Class V will be admitted to
government schools every year. A statement from the government states that,
after getting data from MCDs, admission will be made online and then students
will be handed over the admission slips. For the first time, there won’t be
queues any longer, for parents outside these government schools, seeking admission
to Class VI.
According to Education minister Manish Sisodia, after
holding a meeting with the officials of DoE and the commissioner of municipal
bodies on Wednesday, the admission slips for the next academic session, will be handed over during the current academic
session between March 15 to April 1,
2017 by principals and teachers of government schools to children studying in
Class V. Also, the education officials of MCDs have been asked to organize
camps in their schools during summer holidays and encourage reading habits among children.
Atishi Marlena, advisor to the minister, said that parents
used to take their children to the schools, fill the admission form and get
their wards admitted. Mostly they are turned away and hence there is delay in
the admission. Since the data exists with the MCD already, they will directly
generate separate admission slips and parents will just have to sign. A welcome
meeting will be conducted at the school at the beginning of the session to make
the children feel comfortable.
