The educational facilities are provided in stages i.e. pre-primary, primary,
middle, secondary, senior secondary and university level. Pre-primary and
primary educations are mainly the responsibility of the local bodies. Middle,
secondary and senior secondary education is primarily looked after by
Directorate of Education, Government of Delhi. Although pre-primary and primary
education is mainly the responsibility of the local bodies, the Govt. of Delhi
has converted its 326 schools into composite schools now known as Sarvodaya
Vidyalayas having classes from I to XII. At the University level, Govt. of
Delhi is running 28 Degree Colleges being funded by UGC and Delhi Govt. NDMC,
though mainly concerned with primary education, is also running a selected
number of middle, secondary, senior secondary schools in its areas at present.
Apart from this a number of private organizations are also engaged in imparting
education at all levels of schooling. These organizations are given
grant-in-aid by Govt. of Delhi to meet the expenditure on education. Besides
these, recognised unaided schools are also being run in Delhi by registered
trusts and societies.
