Legal row over nursery admissions in the national capital witnessed yet another twist on Friday with the Supreme Court staying the Delhi High Court order on going ahead with the admission process without considering the points for inter-state tranafers.
A bench led by Justice H L Dattu issued a notice to the Delhi government, which is currently under the President’s Rule and the Lt Governor is the administrator.
The Delhi High Court 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.
The Delhi High Court has to hear the case next on April 16.
