The Delhi High Court on Wednesday declined to take up the nursery admission issue saying the Supreme Court has stayed the order and “we can’t touch the issue.” The court also asked the petitioner to get clarification from the apex court on whether the high court can take up the issue of transfer cases.
Parents suggested that the number of seats in nursery admission be increased to adjust transfer category students. The HC bench said, “We will allow if you can get clarification from SC on whether we can take up the matter.”
On April 11, the Supreme Court had stayed the Delhi High Court order on going ahead with the admission process without considering the points for inter-state tranafers.
The HC had in a recent order asked the government to process the nursery admissions as per the February 27 notification of the Lt Governor. It had said that the controversy over five points for inter-state transfers will be decided later and hence the schools had to make admissions on the basis of 70 poin criteria.
