All About EWS Admissions

The Directorate of Education, every year keeps some reserved seats for the students who are from the category of Economical Weaker Section (EWS), Disadvantaged Group (DG) and CWSN Children with Special Needs Disadvantaged Group (DG) category. So, the guardians can apply for their child for school admission in the class from Nursery to first. Parents who want to register their child in the entry level classes for the EWS/DG category are required to fill the EWS Nursery Admission Form 2022 before the last date of registration.

EWS Admission 2022-23

The admission process for students under CWSN, DG and EWS seats in private schools has been difficult, with schools reporting less admissions in under unreserved seats. The schools are required to reserve 3% of their sanctioned strength in entry-level classes for CWSN students and 22% for EWS/DG students. This procedure is adapted to admit 1 EWS student for every 3 general category admissions.

As per a recent order by Delhi government’s Education Department, private schools will not be permitted to claim exclusion from EWS and CWSN student admissions quota on the basis of not being able to admit sufficient students in general category.

Schools have found it problematic to adhere by the norm with fewer EWS and CWSN admissions for the session 2021-22. 5000 seats of CWSN and 1000 seats of EWS reservation remained unfilled. As per the circular of the Department of Education, “The department has received numerous complaints from parents’ associations regarding refusal of concerned private unaided-recognized schools concerned for not giving admission to selected EWS/CWSN/DG category children on the basis of fewer general category admissions in the academic year 2021-2022. Further, several private unaided-recognized schools are now claiming they got fewer general category students for admission than the sanctioned strength. Thereby, they seek an exemption in admitting all the EWS/DG/CWSN category students allotted as per sanctioned strength to them, to the extent in proportion of the actually admitted general category students”.
