Directorate of Education (DoE)

Published on: Dec 1, 2009
The Directorate of Education (DoE), NCT of Delhi is the highest authority for the functioning of school education in the state, particularly at the Middle, secondary and senior secondary levels. The pre primary and primary education is looked after by the local bodies.

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 offering classes from I to XII. For enhancing higher education standard, the Govt. of Delhi is running 28 Degree Colleges being funded by UGC and Delhi Govt.

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, unaided schools are also being run in Delhi by registered trusts and societies by means of permission/recognition from the Directorate of Education (DoE), New Delhi.
