List of 62 Rules for EWS DG Admission in Delhi School

S.No. Criteria Remarks of being unfair, unreasonable and non-transparent.
1 Special ground (parents with proficiency in music, sports, national awardee etc.) This criterion is not just as it is discriminatory to the other children seeking admission.
2 Transferable jobs / state transfers / IST This criterion is required for admission in upper classes to give better chances and continuation of studies of a child. It is not just to give weightage for admission at the entry level classes. Apart from it, an individual residing in particular locality for many years has a better right to get his ward admitted in the school in his locality rather than the individual who has shifted on transfer to that locality.
3 First Born This criterion shall lead to discrimination for the parents desirous to seek admission of his ward that is not first born.
4 Parents education India is a developing country and literacy rate is not 100%. Giving weightage to parents’ education criteria is unjust to the children whose parents do not have good educational background. It leads to the inequality also.
5 School transport One can’t be forced to use school transport and it depends on the need of parents. Compulsion to use school transport shall also put an extra financial burden on the parents.
6 Parent working in sisterconcern
school,
The ward of Staff/Employees of any school concerned can have a right for admission to that school but extending the same benefits to the sister concern of that particular school will curtail the right of General Parents’ wards.
7 Both parents are working. There is no merit to give weightage on this criterion. Equal opportunities of admission should be given to nonworking/ single parent working/both parents working
8 First cousin of the child (parental / maternal), This will create a homogenous group in a class/school which is not conducive to the overall development of child.
9 School specific criteria This criterion has a very wide interpretation. The school should have specified it in a just, reasonable and transparent manner.
10 Status of child This is illogical criterion as one can’t assign the status to the small children.
11 Special ground if candidate is having proficiency in music and sports It is inappropriate to assign points for proficiency in music and sport to a child at the age of 3 to 6 years.
12 Any other specific category This is vague criterion. The school should have specified it in a just, reasonable and transparent manner
13 Social/Noble cause. There is no standard parameter to determine it and is likely to be misused.
14 Mother’s qualification 12th Passed There is no merit to give weightage on this criterion. Equal opportunities of admission should be given to children irrespective of their mother’s qualification.
15 Non-smoker parent Child cannot be punished for the any particular habit of the parents, so this is unjust
16 Empirical achievements of the parent Parents’ achievements cannot be the criteria for admission as all the children have equal rights
17 First time admission seekers There is no merit. Everyone is first time admission seekers to the entry level class
18 First-comefirst-get, The admission schedule has been fixed by the Department prescribing the dates for submitting application, displaying the list of selected children. If no particular criteria is fixed for such admission, the school may collect applications up to the last date, if number of application are more than the seats, it may go for draw of lots and make admission as per announced schedule.
19 Oral Test Screening/Interview at the entry level is not reasonable
20 Interview Interview at the entry level is not reasonable
21 Professional field // expertise Parents’ professional field cannot be the criteria for admission as all the children have equal rights.
22 Management Quota Schools do not adopt standard procedure to admit students under this criterion. There are widespread allegations that this quota is misused by the schools by collecting capitation fee from the parents.
23 Date of Birth Certificate of Child from MCD/Affidavit This cannot be the criteria for points. It is documentary proof for age.
24 Govt. employee Parents’ professional field cannot be the criteria for admission as all the children have equal rights.
25 Vegetarianism Child cannot be punished or rewarded for any particular habit of the parents, so this is unjust.
26 Special cases This criterion has a very wide interpretation. The school should have specified the criteria which may be just, reasonable and transparent.
27 Joint Family This criterion is not practically determinable and as such, there is no basis of connecting it to the admission process.
28 Non-alcoholic Child cannot be punished for any particular habit of the parents, so this is unjust
29 Age Age criterion has already been specified for Entry Level Classes by the department therefore points cannot be assigned to this.
30 Certificate of last school attended/Marks of previous class, In the entry class admission, there is no certificate of last school attended and marks of previous class so it is illogical to give points to this criterion.
31 Proven track record of parents (international/ national/state awardee)/ Rural Development/ Promotion of traditional art and craft/Sport etc. Parents proven track cannot be the criteria for admission as all the children have equal rights.
32 Gender This is discriminatory
33 Attitudes and values It is undefined and likely to be misused
34 ID Proofs and Address of the documents of the parents Department has already specified the list of documents as proofs. It cannot be a criteria for giving points.
35 Language (speak only 2 points, write only 2 points, read only 2 points) This is illogical to give points to this criterion. Small children should be on equal footing in every respect as the entry level class is the starting level of learning
36 Promotion/Reco gnition as specified in the school website and notice board It is not clear.
37 Economic condition/ BPL Family/ Background – Poor Family. The parents seeking admission in a particular school are aware of the fee structure of the school and willing to pay the same. Fee structure of the school is same for everyone in the school. So the economic condition should not matter.
38 Business / Service It is not just and discriminatory. Parents’ status does not matter at least in the education field.
39 Special equality It is undefined and likely to be misused.

41 Scholar students It is illogical. No scholastic aptitude can be tested at the entry level classes.
42 Regularity in payment of school dues It is illogical. Parents just seeking admission of their ward in the entry level class cannot be judged on this criterion

44 2 Photograph of child It is not relevant criteria for assigning points
45 Original Research/ Recognition received in the area It is illogical, undefined.

47 Contribution, physical or professional work (both probono) through a registered NGO It is vague and undefined and likely to be misused.

51 Management reference This criterion is not fair and likely to be misused

55 Permanent resident of Delhi by birth It is illegal and violation of fundamental right of the citizen.
56 School parameters/ school specific parameters It is undefined.

62 Delhi University staff It is illogical

The list mentioned above is indicative and not exhaustive. The Private Unaided Recognized Schools are directed to remove all the criteria which are unfair, unreasonable and non-transparent.

Further, it is also observed that some of the schools have reserved a large number of seats under various quotas. Only 25% of the seats are reserved in Private Unaided Recognized Schools for EWS/DG admissions and rest of the 75% seats should be open seats where points based fair, reasonable and transparent criteria can be adopted for the admissions. In 75% of the open seats, there should not be any quota. However, if required, the children of the staff and the children of the members of the Management Committee can be given admission by making it a criterion and assigning points.

It is, accordingly, ordered that all Private Unaided Recognized Schools shall revise the admission criteria on the above lines in view of the directions of the Hon’ble High Court in its judgement dated 28/11/2014. This order is issued with the approval of the Cabinet.”
