The date for submitting the nursery admission application forms in the national capital ends on Tuesday. The submission date was extended to Tuesday only for children above four years of age.

The extension was given after the Delhi high court quashed the upper age limit category introduced by the Delhi government. The government had issued a circular notifying that children above four years could not apply to nursery classes this year.

Some parents had moved the high court against this decision, after which the court quashed the circular and directed the government to give these children some time for application. The last day for application for both general and Economically weaker Section (EWS) category students ended on February 5.

The schools will release the final list of selected candidates in the general category on February 15. Each school will have to upload the names of selected candidates along with points received by them on the website and even display it on the notice boards. For the EWS category, the government will conduct draw of lots and allot schools to the selected candidates.
