Central government think tank NITI Aayog has described Delhi school system as the "landmark transformation" of the government schools with top score in the think tank's India Innovation Index 2020.

The index said that given the high income levels of Delhi and the transformation of the government schools system, Delhi has reported the highest National Achievement Survey (NAS) score of 44.73. The index said: "Since the quality of education is also a function of the pupil-teacher ratio, it was the second best-performing indicator under human capital."
