In a recent development to Nursery Admissions in the capital, Delhi High Court on 12 February had issued a stay on fresh draw of lots, conducted by schools for admission to nursery classes. Court also asked the government to provide all necessary details on the issue in relation to private unaided schools located in Delhi.
The High Court ordered no admission to take place until the next date of hearing on 24 March 2014.
The order have been issued by a division bench of acting Chief Justice B D Ahmed and Justice Siddharth Mridul who stated no admission will be made until the next date of hearing.
The order, came after court was hearing an appeal of group of parents, who filed a writ petition and challenged the High Court’s single-judge order on March 6 who asked Delhi schools to conduct a fresh draw of lots for admission to nursery classes. The order also point that all kids, who have acquired equal marks, shall be considered equal for admissions and it will be made on the basis of draw of lots.
The parents hit back through an appeal saying that their wards have already got selected through the pre-existing admission guidelines, but the new orders of March 6, made the entire process getting repeated again. The parents have issues because 6 March order will make the selected wards to start back from the scratch and the second draw of lots would decrease the probability of ward’s selection, which initially were selected.
The argument took place after Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung on 27 February, issued an order of removing the 5 points, out of 100 points, given to inter-state transfer cases.
