Nursery Admissions:Delhi HC declines stay

delhi-high-courtThe Delhi High Court on Wednesday refused to grant interim stay on its single Judge verdict quashing the point system for nursery admission for private unaided schools in the city.

A bench of Chief Justice G Rohini and Justice R S Endlaw dismissed the application for interim stay moved by the Education Department of Delhi Government. The Bench said, it will hear the main appeal on merit on 15th January next year, the next date of hearing.

The Delhi government’s plea contended that there cannot be any discrimination or question of autonomy in the matter of admitting children around three years of age in nursery. The single Judge had passed the order on 28th November while disposing of two petitions by a committee and a forum representing the private schools which had challenged the Delhi government’s notifications by which the points system was introduced last year.
