Central government's big decision under NEP, now this will be the minimum age for admission in class 1

New Delhi: Under the new National Education Policy (NEP), a major decision has been taken to bring uniformity in the age of 1st class admission in schools across the country. Under this, it will now become mandatory for the child to be at least six years old to take admission to the 1st class in schools across the country. It is noteworthy that the minimum age for admission to 1st class in Kendriya schools has already been fixed at six years.

Now, this rule is being implemented at the state level also. In this regard, necessary guidelines have been issued by the Central Government to all the states. It has been said with them that in the coming two-three years, the system of minimum age for admission in class one should be implemented. According to the information received, the Ministry of Education has taken this step after the recommendation made in the new National Education Policy. Under this, the structure of school education has been completely transformed.

In this, the age of the child for admission in the 1st class has been fixed at six years. It is a different matter that there are still about 22 such states and union territories including Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, where the minimum age for admission in 1st class is six years. On the other hand, there are about 14 such states and union territories like Gujarat, Delhi and Kerala, where the minimum age of admission in class I is five years or five and a half years.
