SC to hear Delhi nursery admission case on April 28

New Delhi, Apr. 22: The Supreme Court has agreed to give an urgent hearing on the nursery admission issue in Delhi on April 28.

The apex court had stayed the Delhi High Court’s ruling on nursery admissions in city schools on April 11 after a petition of parents had challenged it, arguing that children who have shifted from a different state to Delhi will not get any quota.

The Supreme Court had also issued a notice to the Delhi Government.

The Delhi High Court had in an order asked the government to process nursery admissions as per the February 27 notification of the Lt. Governor. It said that the controversy over five points for inter-state transfers will be decided later and hence schools had to make admissions on the basis of the 70 point criteria. (ANI)
