Draw of Lots or Point System for Nursery Admissions in Delhi

Updated on June 8, 2011

If you are a resident of Delhi and especially a parent of school going kids, you must have heard about the recent guidelines released by the government for nursery admissions process. According to the latest news and a meeting held between Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit and Association of Delhi Schools, it has been made clear by the government that all schools of Delhi will have to follow the draw of lots or random selection process for nursery admissions according to the RTE guidelines and not the previous point system.

Whatever are the views of honorable ministers and prestigious principals of Delhi schools, the views of Delhi parents community connected via and various social networking sites like Facebook, Orkut, etc. are that there should be point system for nursery admissions. Parents of 3+ to 4+ year old kids in Delhi including me are in a fix that with draw of lots, there is no transparency and we need point system just because with point system, a parent will be a little bit certain about their child’s admission in a specific school but with untransparent draw of lots, nursery admission of every child in Delhi schools will be totally uncertain. There are several discussions going on in the forum like:

  1. Do you think draw of lots is fair?
  2. Is this a draw of lots going on for nursery admissions or for buying DDA flats in Delhi?
  3. Don’t you think that draw of lots is just like gambling with kid’s future?
  4. Is this the education system we will follow? What our kids will learn from this?

I am for the first time into news and media just for rights of kids of Delhi including my daughter, my brother-in-law's son, and many kids of my friends of Facebook and other social networking sites who all are eligible for nursery admissions in 201

The confusion going around the session 2011-2012 for nursery admissions has been the same every year. It is not been any different but has rather become worse than before. In 2007, Ganguly committee introduced 100 point system for nursery admissions and same was followed till the session 2010-2011 but suddenly this year, government released guidelines converting the point system to draw of lots making every parent seeking admission of their small kids completely upset and confused.

Delhi parents community headed by Mr. Sumit Vohra, an IT consultant and webmaster of are planning to stick against the RTE guidelines especially opposing draw of lots for nursery admissions. Till that time, we parents of India’s future will remain puzzled regarding what is going to happen with our kid’s future and the nursery admissions 2011-2012.

Author of this story, Rajinder Soni, is a concerned parent from who has tried to protest against draw of lots via media on December 3rd, 2010. The story of nursery admissions issues especially against DRAW OF LOTS was broadcasted via IBN7 News Channel, the recording of which you can see via youtube video attached with this article.
