Delhi parents are rushing to Gurgaon to secure seat....?

As nursery admission in Delhi schools have not started, a number of parents are rushing to Gurgaon to secure a seat for their little ones. Some parents said Gurgaon schools offer more choice, both in terms of curriculum and infrastructure.
While admission process in Gurgaon schools started on August 1, Delhi schools will open their counters only be the end of the year.
“Delhi schools offer fewer seats and the admission process is comparatively tough. But in Gurgaon, the scenario is the opposite. Also, most schools provide bus services to Delhi and so admitting my child in another city is not a problem,” Latika Pant of Green Park in New Delhi, said.
Schools such as Delhi Public School (Sector 45), DPS (Sushant Lok), The HDFC School, Suncity World School, Amity International School, Millennium School, Ridge Valley School, Vega Schools, Lotus Valley International School, Scottish High International School and KR Mangalam School have already started their admission process. Others are likely to follow suit by the end of the month.
Parents also said Gurgaon schools are affiliated to different educational boards, including CBSE, Cambridge IGCSE, ICSE and International Baccalaureate (IB), giving them more choice.
Jasmine Joy of Aya Nagar said, “My husband and I have studied in schools affiliated to ICSE and we want our child to study under the same board. Gurgaon has maximum number of schools in Delhi-NCR with the same board.”
“The better schools around my home are on the other side of the border, in Gurgaon. I do not want my child to compromise on her development and education. Plus, most of the schools are offering at least 100 seats, giving more chance to my daughter,” Manju Pande of Kapashera said.
Authorities of Gurgaon schools said they are getting more application and enquiries from Delhi this year.
Avishek Roy, head, community outreach, Vega Schools, said, “A lot of parents, especially from south Delhi localities such as Chhatarpur, Aya Nagar and Saket, are enquiring about the school. We are a new establishment and a lot of queries are coming forward from word-of-mouth.”
Peeya Sharma, principal of Ryan International School, Sector 40, said even last year the school received 100 applications from Delhi. “There are a number of reasons for parents to apply here. The most important is early admissions and more seats. We are expecting a similar or higher number of requests this year too.”
Though most institutions are welcoming parents from Delhi, a few schools are also denying their requests.
“Parents from Delhi are coming to the school daily to take or submit forms as the admission process is considerably easy in Gurgaon. But, we are not accepting the requests as the school is not providing transport facility to Delhi and giving the children admission would compromise with their security,” Anita Makkar, principal, The HDFC School in Sector 57, said.

The nursery admissions have started for almost half of the schools in the city and the parents are battling with dilemma over fee structures, schools and curriculums. With the introduction of International Baccalaureate (IB) and Cambridge IGCSE in many schools, choosing curriculum has become a more significant decision than ever.

Nursery schools in Gurgaon costlier than IITs...

In what should rile parents of private school students in Gurgaon, it has been revealed by a survey conducted by a parents' forum in Delhi/NCR that on average, nursery schools charge more than the fee for an undergraduate course at IITs.

Conducted by Admission Nursery, the survey says a parent in Gurgaon pays an average of Rs 3 lakh a year for a year in the nursery class of a CBSE school. Most CBSE schools charge anything between Rs 2.8 lakh and Rs 3.7 lakh, whereas IITs charge a maximum of Rs 2 lakh per annum, along with overhead charges such as fees for accommodation, admission, campus management, etc., that does not exceed Rs 30,000.

One-time charges in schools — that are paid at the time of admission — are as high as Rs 1 lakh. Tuition fees for nursery classes range from Rs 80,000 to Rs 1.9 lakh per year. Most CBSE schools in Gurgaon charge admission fees, which are non-refundable, that are 20-50 times higher than Delhi schools.

"Schools in Delhi charge about Rs 500-1,500 as admission fees. In comparison, Gurgaon schools charge anything between Rs 30,000 and Rs 80,000, which is non-refundable. That means, if my child makes it to a better school, I will have to bear the loss. However, we have no option but to give in to the demands of private schools," said Nyra Gupta, a resident of Sector 45, who wants to get her daughter admitted in a good CBSE school in Gurgaon.

Sakshi Chopra, a parent from South City II, said, "Parents here are paying the price of lack of regulation by district authorities. There is no uniformity of charges sought by schools. I don't think there is anything exceptional in these schools. We're just paying the price of living in an expensive city."

In Delhi, no school is allowed to charge over Rs 25 for the admission form. In Gurgaon, schools charge a 4-digit fee for that. Moreover, it is not mandatory for parents in Delhi to buy a prospectus, while many schools in Gurgaon make it compulsory.
