HC won’t disturb nursery procedure

  • HC won’t disturb nursery procedure

    Summary: New Delhi: The Delhi high court on Friday refused to tinker with ongoing nursery admissions, but made it clear to 298 private unaided schools that their process will be subject to outcome of AAP government's plea. He also maintained that the government is duty bound by Supreme Court verdict to enforce land allotment conditions on schools and in the absence of neighbourhood criterion, schools will accept admission in an arbitrary and opaque manner, and even justify charging exorbitant fees from parents. "Having regard to the fact that the admission process is already in operation, it would not be proper to stop it," a bench of Chief Justice G Rohini and Justice Sangita Dhingra Sehgal observed, when the Delhi government urged it to stay an interim order of the single judge that allowed the schools to go ahead with their own criteria for admissions. "We, however, make it clear that whatever steps have been taken by the parties will be subjected to the final outcome of the appeal that is pending," the bench said, adding "we will examine the issue" on February 22.It also sought the response of the two school associations and the parents on the Delhi government's appeal in the case.Additional solicitor general (ASG) Sanjay Jain, appearing for the Directorate of Education (DoE), submitted that DoE's neighbourhood criteria will prevent schools from acting in an arbitrary manner.
