Delhi EWS quota threshold limit for admission is raised upto 5 Lakh. HC Directed the order to the state government.
Delhi High Court Orders the Delhi government to increase the income limit of the EWS category from 1 Lakh to 5 Lakh annualy.
Earlier, the Delhi Education directorate has proposed increasing the threshold limit from 1 to 2.25 lakh.
The increase to Rs 5 lakh is considered a temporary adjustment until a comprehensive assessment of prevailing economic conditions is conducted by the government.
This threshold limit is considered for admission under the EWS Category in various schools in the city.
The court said it is needless to observe that the criteria must be scientific and based on actual data.
High Court judgment came when a father secured his son's admission to a reputed school under an EWS quota by forging the documents.
Now, the parents under the EWS Category and within a limit are eligible to get admission in delhi under the EWS quota.
However, the Delhi Nursery Admission for the EWS Category has yet to start, and its details will be released soon once the Govt. amends the laws.
