The Delhi government has asked private schools in the national capital running on government land to submit details of admissions under the EWS category in upper classes within two days.

The scrutiny of data on the Education department’s website shows that only 154 schools uploaded the details of the EWS admissions in standard 3 and above. Also, it contained errors, the Directorate of Education said in a communication to schools.

“Due to the incomplete and erroneous data, it is difficult to ascertain the number of students admitted under the freeship quota in upper classes in the schools running on the land belonging to DDA or the government which is to be submitted in the High Court,” it said, adding minority schools have been granted an exemption.

The government has also directed schools to ensure that they admit children belonging to economically weaker sections in neighbourhood to the extent of 20 per cent in all fresh admissions for the academic session 2016-17.
