Delhi High Court refuses to suspend new nursery admission norms

New Delhi, Jan 10 : The Delhi High Court Friday refused to suspend a government notification on the criteria for nursery admissions in the capital on a plea filed by the city's unaided private schools.


Justice Manmohan, issuing notice to the Delhi government, asked it to file its reply within three weeks. The matter was posted for hearing next March 11. However, he declined to suspend the new norms for nursery admissions this year.

The plea, filed by the Action Committee of Unaided Private Schools, challenged the Dec 18 notification of Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung and claimed it was "absolutely illegal, arbitrary and without jurisdiction".

The court said the matter requires detailed hearing and it cannot be decided in such short time after the schools' counsel asked the court to suspend the notification as the admission process for nursery is set to begin Jan 15.

The court, however, said: "This academic session you can go on with this notification, we can see for next year."
