SC Lifts Stay on Nursery Admissions, IST Category Revisited

May 7, 2014 17:49 IST

    It seems to be great relief for parents who have moved to court against the Delhi government’s decision not to provide seats in schools for their children under Inter State Transfer (IST) category in this academic year. On 07 May 2014, Supreme Court (SC) cleared the stay on nursery admissions in Delhi and henceforth admissions will be held for the next academic session.

    Supreme Court on Wednesday cleared the decks for nursery admissions and ordered the government to accommodate 24 students under the IST category whose parents approached it first. In a notification issued by the Government on 27 February 2014 where admissions were put on hold under IST category was scrapped by a bench headed by Justice H L Dattu and made it clear that only those students who approached earlier will be getting admission. The order was passed by apex court in concern with the petition filed by those parents who have shifted to Delhi from other parts of the nation felt neglected and abused on large scale after they were detained from giving admissions for their child by Delhi government under the IST category.

    The court also supported the Delhi government’s earlier notification whish was issued on 18 December 2013 whereby the eligible children got 5 extra points under IST quota. Now the schools can easily go off with the admission process as the five month old dilemma has been over with today’s verdict.
