NEW DELHI: The first computerized draw for admission to entry-level classes for seats reserved under the Economically Weaker Section (EWS), Disadvantaged Groups (DG) and Children with Special Needs (CWSN) in the private schools will be declared on Tuesday, according to The Directorate of Education (DoE).
"It is hereby learnt that the first computerized draw of lots for admission to EWS, DG and CWSN category for academic session 2021-22 is going to be held on June 15 at 3 PM," the DoE said in an official directive.
Under the Right to Education (RTE) Act of 2009, at least 25 percent of seats in entry-level classes -- nursery, kindergarten, and Class 1-- have to be set aside for EWS/DG (22 percent) and children with disabilities (3 percent).
The application process for EWS admissions began on April 7 and the first draw was supposed to be held on April 30.
However, it was put off due to the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The process for general admissions in the entry-level classes was also behind by over two months this year in view of the pandemic.
