SC stays Delhi HC's order on nursery admissions
A Supreme Court bench headed by Justice H.L. Dattu on Friday stayed the Delhi High Court's ruling on nursery admissions in city schools.
The apex court stayed the high court order after a petition of parents had challenged it, arguing that children who have shifted from a different state to Delhi will not get any quota.
The Supreme Court also issued a notice to the Delhi Government.
The Delhi High Court had in a recent order asked the government to process nursery admissions as per the February 27 notification of the Lt. Governor. It said that the controversy over five points for inter-state transfers will be decided later and hence schools had to make admissions on the basis of the 70 point criteria.
The high court will now hear the case on April 16.
