New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Wednesday issued notice to the central and the city governments on a plea seeking framing of guidelines on providing seats to children with disabilities.

A division bench of Justice S. Ravindra Bhat and Justice R.V. Easwar also asked the Delhi government to indicate its stand on providing three percent reservation for disabled children within the 75 percent general category in nursery admissions.

'The Delhi government shall file a proper affidavit indicating its stand with respect to the issue of whether within the 75 percent quota, the three percent and further reservations under the Disabilities Act can be worked out to the advantage of those covered by the enactment,' said the bench posting the matter for March 19.

The court was hearing a plea which also challenged the fresh nursery admission guidelines that clubbed the economically weaker section (EWS) category with that of children with disabilities.
