No child will be denied admission in any class of Delhi Government schools for want of Transfer certificate (TC). Deputy Chief Minister and Education Minister Manish Sisodia announced this decision in a press conference today.
He said, “if any child of Delhi wants to leave a private school and take admission in a government school, he/she will not be denied admission due to lack of a TC”. This decision of the Delhi Government is set to provide relief to thousands parents who are keen to move their child from private to government school.
Sisodia said, “Some private schools are holding back Transfer Certificate to students and asking parents to deposit the full fee first. For this reason, many parents are unable to get their children out of private schools and take admission in government school. Taking cognizance in this regard after receiving such complaints from many parents, the Directorate of Education has been asked to ensure that provisional admission is granted to students allotted schools and that the officers of DoE should directly secure the TC from concerned private school. Parents need not worry about TC anymore.”
Sisodia further informed that so far 28,000 applications have been received for Nursery, KG and Class I for admission in Delhi Government’s Sarvodaya Schools. Admission list will be issued on 20th July.
Further, about 90,000 applications have been received for classes VI to XII (except class XI). Process of school allocation is currently underway.
