Reimbursement allowable classes from Nursery to twelfth, Here Nursery class means what (Define: Nursery), Is it 3yrs earlier to class 1 or 4yrs earlier to class 1.

Because some school pattern is Nursery,KG1,KG2 and class 1, some other school like DPS, pre-Nursery, Nursery,Preparatory and Class 1.

Now, for the children studying in DPS in the class Pre-Nursery tuition fee is reimbursable or not?

In case schools do not issue receipts against fees paid but endorse such payment in the fee-card issued by them, is re-imbursement available against attested copies of such card?(Each such card incorporate the total fees paid during a academic year).Orinal card may be submitted along with the claim for the last quarter.
