Delhi HC orders fresh draw of lots in nursery admission

New Delhi, March 6: The Delhi High Court Thursday ordered a fresh draw of lots in the nursery admission process for all seats.

Justice Manmohan said all candidates having equal marks shall be considered equal by conducting a draw of lots.

The Delhi government Feb 27 issued a notification scrapping the inter-state transfer category under which it used to give five additional points to children whose parents were transferred to the national capital from another state.

The court was hearing a plea filed by some parents against the city government’s decision to scrap the inter-state transfer category points.
