All private schools in the national capital will now get 300 INR more per child from the Delhi government, as reimbursement for admissions under the Economically Weaker Section (EWS) category. The decision to increase the amount comes after Deputy Education Minister Manish Sisodia received complaints from various private schools against 'minimal amount' reimbursed by the government to them for allowing students under EWS. The government presently reimburses a fixed amount to private schools in lieu of taking admission of students who belong to this section. However, numerous complaints were received about the amount being less, a senior Directorate of Education official told PTI. It has now been decided that the amount will be raised to 1,598 from 1,290. During the ongoing admission for entry level classes, the government has allotted over 26,600 seats through computerised draws under the EWS category.
