In what seems to be one of the many drawbacks of the Covid-19 pandemic, seats in the entry-level classes- that is Nursery, KG and Class 1- remain vacant in scores of Delhi private schools. The number of such schools that failed to fill their entry-level seats was 329 last year, in the academic session of 2021-22 as several 0f the general category seats were not taken up for admissions.

In an attempt to direct the Delhi private schools in this regard, the DoE has issued a statement saying, “With the consent of the parties, it is directed that advertisements be issued in all leading newspapers within one week, informing the prospective students that since some general category seats in the entry-level classes in various private schools haad remained unfilled in the last academic session, students can now be accommodated in the corresponding higher classes in the said schools in the current academic session. The advertisement will clearly state that the details of the schools having unfulfilled general category seats, against which admission can be granted to students, can be accessed on the website of the Directorate of Education.”
What is most surprising here is that prior to the pandemic, admission to the entry-level classes was a very competitive situation. However, now, even some of the most renowned schools in Delhi have several unfulfilled seats that weren't taken up for admissions. Here is a look at some of the private schools in Delhi that are still lurking a lot behind in terms of vacant nursery seats.
