Maharashtra: New school Cut- off date

The cut-off date to determine whether a child is old enough to be admitted to school was changed from September 30 to December 31 in Maharashtra on Friday. This means if a child turns six before December 31, he or she would be eligible to be admitted to class I in the ongoing academic year, and won't have to wait till next June. The new December 31 cut-off date will be applicable to nursery and play-school admissions too, said a government resolution (GR).

Further, the decision is applicable to all schools in the state, irrespective of board affiliations, the order stated.
