The Delhi government has once again extended the last date for Economically Weaker Section (EWS) admissions in entry-level classes up to June 24. “The last date for reporting by successful candidates of EWS and DG category in entry-level classes is once again been extended up to June 24,” Yogesh Pal Singh, deputy director of Education, said.
The deadline was earlier extended up to June 14.
The admission to entry-level classes in private schools in the city under EWS, Disadvantaged Group (DG) and Children with Special Needs (CWSN) categories began on March 29.
According to provisions of the Right to Education Act, 25 per cent of seats in entry-level classes — nursery, KG or class 1 — in private schools are reserved for students from EWS, DG and CWSN categories.
While EWS refers to children whose annual family income is less than Rs 1 lakh, the DG category includes SC, ST, OBC, non-creamy layer, orphans, transgender and children living with or affected by HIV.
