New Delhi: The Delhi High Court today declined any interim relief to unaided recognized private schools which have sought quashing of the notification on nursery admission guidelines.

Justice Manmohan, while issuing notices to Delhi Government and Directorate of Education (DoE), said the petitions required “detailed hearing and it cannot be stayed on the first day”.

Terming the Delhi government's notification as arbitrary, senior advocate N K Kaul, appearing for Action Committee for Unaided Recognised Private Schools, said that at least for the time being the operation of the notification be stayed.  

The court, however, refused to stay the notification and fixed the matter for final hearing on March 11.  It, meanwhile, asked the Delhi Government and DoE to file their responses within three weeks.

The plea has been filed challenging the nursery admission guidelines issued by the Lieutenant Governor by which various steps including weightage to neighbourhood kids and abolition of 20 per cent management quota were taken.
