A New Schedule for Nursery Admissions in Delhi is Likely to Come

Feb 27, 2014 04:12 IST

    The nursery admission procedure for 2014 session may be delayed further in Delhi-NCR as Delhi High Court directed the State Government on 26 February 2014 to make a final decision over inter-State transfer category and come up with a fresh schedule for draw of lots by 27 February.

    The HC has come up with this order after the government expressed that it has been considering to scrap up the five points allowed to the inter-State transfer cases, and subsequently, will come out with a new admission schedule.

    Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung on 26 February 2014 told to the Delhi High Court that the Delhi government has decided to nullify the additional five points meant to be claimed by only those children of parents who fall under the inter-state transfer category for nursery admissions.

    Appearing before a Bench of Justice Manmohan, the counsel for the government, Advocate Raju Ramachandran, said the five-point system on transfer cases was being misused by school authorities. He said that a survey was conducted in 58 leading private schools of Delhi-NCR that revealed misuse on a large scale of the transfer points.

    While explaining the misuse of transfer points to the court, the Advocate revealed that over 1,520 applications were received under the inter-state transfer category, among which 844 and above applications were found to be "not genuine" after they were scrutinized.

    The data analysis of findings showed that in the samples of the surveyed 58 leading Delhi schools, nearly 46.80% of open seats have been claimed under the inter-state transfer category with 2.4% applications belonging to the NCR zone alone, said Ramachandran.

    After hearing the statement from the government counsel, Justice Manmohan directed the department of education of Delhi government to issue a fresh schedule for draw of lots after cancelling the inter-state 5 points by 27 February 2014.
