Delhi Government are directed to decide new Nursery admission rule, going along with RTE Act

Sep 26, 2013 17:30 IST

    On 25 September 2013, the Delhi High Court asked Delhi Government to take a decision within three months on a petition seeking revision in admission process for nursery standard to synchronize it properly with the Right to Education (RTE) Act that forbids screening of kids for admission.

    A bench of Chief Justice N V Ramana and Justice Manmohan inclined towards PIL , directed Delhi government and the Lieutenant Governor (LG) come up with a decision within 12 weeks for the amendment of Recognised Schools ( Admission Procedure for Pre-Primary Class) Order, 2007 after being represented by a Social Jurist, a civil rights group.

    The plea calls for the modification in clause 14 of the order in the pre-schooling admission procedure, to bring it in line with Section 13 read with Section 2(o) of the Right to Education (RTE) Act that states no screening of children for nursery admission.
    As per the PIL, Delhi government t in its 2007 order gave freedom to independent recognised schools to structure their own nursery admission guidelines.

    Ashok Agarwal (Petitioner from NGO's counsel) disagree saying that by offering freedom to the private unaided recognised pre-schools to devise their own rules for admissions, the government had violated Section 13 of the Right to Education Act.
