Previously, few reports claimed that the Delhi government was planning to skip the nursery admissions this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the schools being shut for over nine months. However, Education Minister Manish Sisodia had rubbished such reports. "Till date, there is no plan to scrap nursery admissions this year. Sure we are late due to the pandemic, but admissions will happen," Sisodia had said.
The admission process for nursery children usually begins in the last week of November but the procedure this year had been delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic situation.
Meanwhile, the government announced that Delhi schools are going to reopen for Class 9 and Class 11 students from February 5. Students can attend schools only after their parents approve of it. Physical attendance has not been made compulsory by the government, schools are to follow all COVID-19 guidelines, the official order said. Earlier the Delhi government had allowed all schools in the capital to reopen for Class 10 and Class 12 from January 18 as the students are going to give the board examinations.
