According to regulations, no other commercial activities like computer centres or coaching classes will be permitted where playschools are operational. The owner of the school will have to obtain permission from the Directorate of Education and be dictated by the Delhi School education Act, making it possible for the education director to derecognise schools which don’t comply with its rules.

Stating that it was already monitoring playschools running on land allotted by government agencies, the Education department stated in an affidavit filed before the Delhi High Court that it will now monitor all such institutions running on private land as well, to have “parity” in matters relating to such institutions.
