Nursery admissions: HC to give verdict tomorrow
New Delhi: The Delhi High Court will deliver tomorrow its judgement on the issue of nursery admissions in the national capital which could have a bearing on the admission process for the coming academic year of 2015-16.
The court was hearing a batch of petitions filed by the parents against guidelines issued by Delhi's Lieutenant Governor on December 18, 2013 on the admissions.
While reserving his verdict, Justice Manmohan had also restrained Delhi government from issuing fresh notification for nursery admission for the upcoming academic year in the national capital on a plea challenging last year's guidelines.
The court, which had reserved its order after hearing arguments from both the sides, had also said that the petitions will become infructuous if the government issues fresh guidelines.
Under the earlier system, out of a total 100 points, 70 were given if the child lives in the neighbourhood of the school, additional 20 were given if a sibling is studying there, five points more if either parent is an alumni and another five points if it is an inter-state transfer case.
Draw of lots were held at each point level.
Thereafter, the government had on February 27 issued an order abolishing the five points that were being awarded in inter-state transfer cases.
