The High Court on 17 April 2013 issued a notice to the Delhi Government on a PIL regarding the nursery admissions in private unaided schools.

The PIL was filed by NGO Social Jurist and advocate Ashok Aggarwal on the government’s inaction over the issue of selection criteria in the schools.

The latest PIL sought an order declaring the provisions of clause 14 of the Recognized Schools (Admissions Procedure for Pre-Primary Class) Order, 2007, as arbitrary, discriminatory, unjust, illegal, unconstitutional, anti-child and hit by the scheme of the RTE Act, 2009 ," and asked the court to "issue an appropriate writ order to the respondents to formulate fresh guidelines for Nursery/pre-primary admissions in line with the Section 13 read with Section 2 (o) of the RTE Act, 2009, in order to make Section 13 read with Section 2 (o) meaningful".

As of now, the High Court bench of Chief Justice D Murugesan and Justice Jayant Nath has asked the government to reply to the PIL on the next date of hearing in July 2013.
