New Delhi: Parents sweat out in Delhi to secure admission for their children in nursery schools. The guidelines and rules are not clear and every school seems to follow their own guidelines. So many developments take place during the admission season that parents are clueless as so where do they stand in the admission process.
Now, Delhi government will soon set up a helpline number to attend to nursery admission-related complaints. "We will soon launch a helpline number dedicated to the nursery admission related issues and I will supervise that and take necessary action accordingly," said Delhi's Education, PWD and Urban Development Minister Manish Sisodia on Monday.
The helpline is expected to start working before January 15, he said.
On the issue of opening 500 new schools which AAP had promised in its manifesto, Sisodia said he held a meeting with the education, finance, fire, MCD, PWD and other concerned departments to discuss the subject.
"195 locations had already been identified during the last government's tenure but they are either stuck with DDA or MCD for various reasons. So, we have asked the concerned departments to give necessary clearances in a time-bound manner," he said.
