The Delhi high court on Friday refused to lift its stay on the nursery admission process. A division bench, comprising acting Chief Justice BD Ahmed and Justice S Mridul, heard various stakeholders and extended its interim stay till April 2.
Meanwhile, the court directed the Directorate of Education to find a solution on how to ensure the rights of those children who could have secured admission in the interstate transfer category but are now facing uncertainty due to its scrapping. It asked the DoE to place on its website details relating to earlier draw of lots conducted for admissions.
Earlier, the HC had rejected the data provided by DoE pertaining to nursery admission in unaided recognized private schools. As per the guidelines, out of 100, 70 points are given kids who reside within 0 to 8km of a school. Twenty points to a child whose sibling is studying in the same school and 5 points are earmarked for the kids whose parents were alumni.
