When it comes to performance in competitive exams, there too Delhi Government school students have performed well with around 53 students qualifying in JEE Advanced and 569 students qualifying in NEET.
With measures like the formation of new classrooms, the Kejriwal government has continued to bolster school infrastructure. As most of the students in Delhi Government schools come from lower economic family backgrounds, the Delhi Government observed the issue of students not being able to get mid-day meals in Delhi Government schools owing to the pandemic and schools shut down. The Kejriwal government formulated a scheme to tackle this issue and to provide mid-day meal. Dry ration kits were served to those who are enrolled in all Delhi Government schools, government-aided, and MCD schools from class nursery to class 10. This scheme covers more than eight lakh students in which dry ration kits are being served by the Delhi Government schools.
