400+ seats vacant but locked due to indecisive Delhi Govt!?


HT Delhi : Around 400 nursery seats will remain vacant this year as the Delhi government has decided NOT to hold a second round of lottery for admission in the economically weaker section/disadvantaged (EWS/DG) category for private schools.

In a circular issued by the Directorate of Education (DOE), the government said that 384 seats have remained vacant as there were no applications in these school or the applicants were allotted a school of higher preference.

This year, the DOE had received 1,13,991 online applications for the 31,653 EWS/DG category seats. Through the computerized draw of lots, a total of 31,269 candidates were allotted schools as per their preferences.

In an affidavit filed by the government at the Delhi High Court, the government has stated that out of the 28,135 seats in 1,159 schools more than 19,000 seats have been filled.

VIRAL & BREAKING: How fake 'crisis' created by nursery admissions forums lead to panic situation in Delhi

We first published this news (via HT), on 3rd March that announced that Delhi parents are reaching out to Gurugram schools for admissions as Nursery Admissions in Delhi continues to haunt poor parents that are once again left clueless, and looking for answers to same age old questions once again.

HERE IS THE INSIDE STORY!

Many parents have started blocking seats in NCR schools as there is lot of misleading information being provided on many leading online forums/sites creating panic situation and these sites are actually promoting some leading schools (so called international schools, full A/C schools, hat-ke schools etc - you know what I mean here), as a result they are creating panic so that they can sell seats in those schools in Gurugram, Noida, Faridabad and specially parents that are ready to shell out money as that puts them in more comfortable position by securing seats but hardly helpful.

It is all about money, a nexus and nursery admissions mafia in making :)

Many online sites and forums are misleading parents by re-publishing information that contradicts with reality on ground, and with parents locked in three way battle among - Schools <> DOE/Govt <> Court - these forums are doing further damage by confusing parents, and diverting them to NCR schools that are always on hunt for upper middle or higher class parents that are always on hunt for comfort zone.

It is pain but parents are advised to rather look for information with schools (the best source actually), as many online forums have incomplete, outdated information. Media hardly validates information themselves and falls pray to these fake admissions gurus assuming they know it all - they are actually in the hands of nexus, who is diverting their attention and actually multiplying panic their benefit.

Parent to Parent : Appeal to parents who got admission in more than one school

 Nursery Admissions Delhi 2017-18
-: Appeal from Delhi Parents:-

Fellow Delhi Parents 
who got admission in more than one school

We are getting requests from many parents to request fellow parents to please submit the withdrawal application (follow the applicable withdrawal procedure) at school as soon as possible so that other parents and their kids can get the seat.

Although the "un-confirmed" seats would be released by the cut-off date in coming weeks but an early release would help other parents who did not get a single seat anywhere yet. 


You have nothing to lose but your withdrawal at early stage would be timely help for all other parents.

If you have released, or wish to release any extra seats in any school, please do share the school name if possible (do NOT share child/parent details, or names please), so that others can see some ray of hope!
