The Delhi High Court on Monday refused to stay the Lt-Governor’s notification on the criteria for nursery admissions.
The division bench of chief justice NV Ramana and justice RS Endlaw dismissed the injunction application filed by the schools and have directed that a single bench would hear the substantive petition against the LG’s order.
“The appellants (schools) have not shown any immediate injury (to be caused by the notification). For the larger issue on autonomy, government’s interference, arbitrariness the single judge is directed to adjudicate the matter.”

Two bodies of private schools in Delhi, the action committee for unaided recognised private schools, and the forum for promotion of quality education had challenged the guidelines issued on December 18 regarding points criteria for nursery admissions. The schools had said the guidelines were arbitrary and impinged upon the autonomy of private schools. The guidelines had prescribed 70 points for children living within 8 km of the school, and abolished the 20% management quota.
The schools had also asked for stay on the application of the notification, arguing that the criteria should not be applied this year as they had not been made in consultation with the advisory committee.
