Delhi: Court to give verdict on nursery admission row soon
It is alleged that two government notifications had given a free hand to unaided private schools to formulate their own nursery admission criteria.
New Delhi: The Delhi High Court is likely to pronounce its verdict on the nursery admission row in a few days. Written arguments from the petitioner have been submitted in court.
The court was hearing a petition filed by NGO Social Jurist against the two notifications of the union human resource development ministry and the Delhi government's directorate of education, empowering unaided private schools to formulate their own nursery admission criteria. The PIL by the NGO through advocate Ashok Agarwal alleged that these two notifications had given a free hand to all unaided recognised private schools.
Schools are likely to submit their arguments later on Monday. In the previous hearing, the court had stayed the admission process for the academic year 2013-14 until a verdict was pronounced in the case.
