New Delhi: The Delhi government has pulled up schools in the national capital for not making public data about vacant seats and admissions made under Economically Weaker Section (EWS) category.

"It has been observed that schools are not doing the same and are ordered to comply with the directive or face action," it said.

While those belonging to families with annual income less than Rs 1 lakh can seek admission under the EWS category, the disadvantaged group (DG) category applicants include -- the SC, ST, OBC, non-creamy layer, physically challenged, orphan and transgender, and all children living with or affected by HIV.
