Delhi Govt to launch Nursery Admissions 2014-2015 Helpline!

Finally AAP factor has started reflecting what a common person would like it to be. 

I am very thrilled with this decision, as I myself started FREE helpline in 2007-2008 to help parents but could not continue due to lack of support from anyone (includes Delhi Govt), and I could only manage to support a very few parents due to my usual busy schedule....

Delhi's Education Minister Manish Sisodia said on Monday 30th December 2013 that Delhi government would soon launch helpline. He added- "We will launch the helpline so parents don't get confused during their children's admissions in nursery schools,", and good thing is that this helpline would be directly under his control so we can expect good execution.

....and by the way, did you download FREE copy of Parent's Handbook on Nursery Admissions? Check it out.....

Good luck!

Nursery Admissions distance criteria/rule relaxed

Finally after discussion with school leaders, Delhi LG Mr Jung has relaxed the criteria and has changed neighbourhood criteria from 6km to 8km.

So, anyone living within 8kms can apply in school in that area and would be eligible for point under neighbourhood criteria (upto 70 points).

Nursery Admissions - Jung Ka Order - what it is, what is changing.....simplified and explained!

Lieutenant Governor of Delhi Najeeb Jung has issued revised guidelines for nursery admissions for the session 2014-15 in Delhi. This is being seen as major change and a koyiey step towards killing misuse of discretionary powers  as some of the private schools has been enjoying those powers ever since first guidelines came out in 2007. (see my post DOE published nursery admission guidelines in 2007)

Mr Jung has scrapped the management quota to ensure admissions are done basis fixed parameters like neighborhood, sibling which makes sense to all, leaving loop wholes. 

Schools who had been selling seats at a cost (aka donations towards 'charities' they operate etc. etc.......pata sab ko hai bolta koi nahin - billi ke gale mai ghanti kon bandhe - tho ko tali :D). We shared few such cases as reported by parents in past years as well, check-out these posts under Seats for Sale.

The new rule/guidelines as approved by Mr Jung deserve appreciation - AAP effect is seen on recent actions (another example we all witnessed was Lokpal getting passed with-in a day that was pending for 40 years, Govt reacting to US treatment with Indian diplomat.....dair aaye durust aaye.....jab jaago tabhi savera!)

The admission process will begin from January 15, 2014 - and I wish all of you Good Luck!

Stay connected as I would be publishing a clear picture on what's what. So no worries we are in good hands of Mr. Jung ;)....

We released 2014 edition of Nursery Admissions Parent's Handbook last night, and we shall wait for few more days to update dates as suggested in the book, but rest doesn't change.
We have updated the handbook to cover new order and its impact. It is the most concise handbook on Nursery Admissions ever. So go ahead and download a free copy. 

Well begun is half done :)
