Much to the respite of parents running for nursery admission, the Delhi Government has scrapped the management quota in the private schools. The only quota that will now remain is the 25 per cent seats set aside for children from the Economically Weaker Sections (EWS), Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal announced on Wednesday.

While addressing a press conference, Kejriwal spoke about setting guidelines for nursery admission process in private schools. “We have taken a major decision in order to make admission process in private schools transparent and pro-people,” Kejriwal said.

The Directorate of Education (DoE) has been asking the unaided recognised schools to develop and adopt criteria for admission which shall be clear, well-defined, equitable, non-discriminatory, unambiguous and transparent. “But we were surprised to see the criteria set by schools for the nursery admission process. Some schools decided to give preference to students whose parents know painting, or music, or have reserved huge quota for a sibling. We have scrapped 62 criteria of admission process in private schools that were unreasonable and discriminatory, ” said he.

Kejriwal criticised the management quota and said, “Management quota is the biggest scandal which deprives common people. Delhi government is passing an order to abandon management quota. If the school managements object, the government will go to court, he said.

    Similarly THE UNWRITTEN, SECRET, ILLEGAL QUOTA FOR BRAHMIN INCOMPETENTS IN POLICE, BUREAUCRACY SHOULD ALSO BE BANNED. ELSE THOSE BRAHMIN INCOMPETENTS WILL BE WIRKING FOR Brahmin Jokers Party(BJP) AND NOT FOR PEOPLE.

      Because Brahmins works very hard and earn money and paying for the seat. What's your problem when you guys get quota and freebies for everything.

        Mangement quota s basically not for Brahmin. It is basically for people who have money . So whats wrong in that. There are many people who have worked hard qualified themselves and working in a top post and earning very well. So they gives the best for their kids by paying. Your statement gives the impression of lower middle cl mentality blaming everything on Brahmin

        Once other school knows the child's mother is working in another school there is high chance to get rejected. Moreover when the mother and child goes to the same school it is more convenient for both of them especially when the child is very young.

              Does this rule apply to minority run insutions also. Is this a way to punish those schools which did not provide buses during the odd-even experiment
