New Delhi, Nov 25 (UNI) The Delhi Government Education Department has issued a raft of revised guidelines with regard to the nursery admission process across the recognised schools in the capital.

The order come days after the Delhi High Court, on November 19, approved the revised guidelines presented by the Delhi government.

According to the new guidelines, the clause 6 now says that the parents will not be interviewed as part of the admission procedure.

Any interaction with the parents can be held after the admission of the child.

The clause 7 says the school would not conduct any interview of the child for whom admission is being sought.

According to the clause 16, every school will make public the approved admission criteria adopted by it, on its website, prospectus and notice board. The schools have also been asked not to change, alter or modify their approved admission criteria adopted by them during the admission process in an academic session.

A special cell to monitor the admission process in the schools will also be formed and the admission criteria adopted by the school will be made by the managing committee and be finalised with the prior approval of the Directorate of Education.

The directions also say there would be no overall lottery system to select or shortlist a child for admission. Limited use of lottery may, however, be adopted in case there is a tie among applicatns.

The High Court had earlier found the guidelines ''vague'' and asked the government for clarity in ''wordings''.
