Panel set up to examine age issue in nur admission for 2014


In view of demands for reviewing the age bracket for nursery admission, Delhi Government today decided to set up a committee to examine the issue for the academic session 2014-15.

"We will not review the decision as the admission process will begin from January 1. But we have decided to examine it for the academic year 2014-15," Education Minister Kiran Walia said after the decision was taken at a meeting of Delhi School Admission Advisory Board presided by her.

After Delhi Government finalised the age limits for admission into nursery, kindergarten and class one for the academic year 2013-14, a number of schools had sought a review of the decision.

The minimum age for admission into nursery classes for 2013-14 is three years while maximum was fixed at three years 11 months and 30 days as on March 30.

For admission into kindergarten, the minimum age was fixed at 4 years while maximum was kept at 4 years 11 months and 30 days.

For class-I, the minimum was kept at 5 years and the maximum was fixed at 5 years 11 months and 30 days on March 30.

A number of schools have demanded raising the minimum age for nursery admission from three-and-half years to four years.
