EWS admission: Reimbursement to pvt schools increased

EWS admission: It has now been decided that the amount will be raised to Rs 1598 from Rs 1290

All private schools in the national capital will now get Rs 300 more per child from Delhi Government as reimbursement for admissions under the Economically Weaker Section (EWS) category from the upcoming academic session.

The decision to increase the amount comes after Deputy Education minister Manish Sisodia received complaints from various private schools against “minimal amount” reimbursed by the government to them for allowing students under EWS category.


“The government presently reimburses a fixed amount to private schools in lieu of taking admission of students who belong to this section. However, numerous complaints were received about the amount being less,” a senior Directorate of Education (DoE) official told PTI.

“It has now been decided that the amount will be raised to Rs 1598 from Rs 1290,” the official added.

During the ongoing admission for entry level classes, the government has allotted over 26,600 seats through computerised draws under the EWS category, an experiment that has been introduced by the Delhi government for the first time.
