Clarification on Children Education Allowance regarding the word of "NURSERY"



Government has been published a clarification through DOPT regard to the definition of "Nursery". This clarification order says, "Reimbursement will be applicable for expenditure on the education of school going children only.

Children from classes nursery to twelfth including classes eleventh and twelfth held by junior colleges or schools affiliated to Universities or Board of Education".

Hence, It is clarified that 'classes nursery to twelfth' will include classes I to XI1 +2 classes prior to class I irrespective of the nomenclature. So, an employee may avail this allowance from LKG studying children.

School like DPS (Delhi Public School), Pre-Primary Eduation pattern ie. prior to class I comprises of three levels ie. Play Group(Pre-Nursery), Nursery and Preparatory. In this case whether the children education allowance reimbursement for the class Play Group(Pre-Nursery) is allowable or not.
