The Delhi government remains to hold consultations over the nursery admission. It has been informed that the parents need to wait till next month for the final decision on the matter. The private schools have determined that the admission can come about this year, once a meeting is held among themselves. The government has stated that the presence of covid-19 is the reason they want to delay admissions.
“We are still holding consultations and examining the pros and cons of the policy. Schools have issues relating to teachers and alternative problems. During a month, we'd be able to create a choice,” stated a senior education department official, adding that holding another year of online classes for nursery has failed to appear to be possible.

The government hasn’t however engaged with the larger bodies representing the schools and parents and therefore the consultations are happening at individual levels. The deferring of admission isn't an answer as mentioned by the principals of various private schools in a meeting.
At present, the method of admission for the entry-level classes - nursery, preschool, and class one has begun. Over three hundred Delhi government schools that have nursery classes will be affected if the admissions are postponed.
