Delhi High Court Stays AAP Government’s New Nursery Admission Norms Based On Neighbourhood Criteria

Delhi High Court is likely to pronounce on Tuesday its verdict on several pleas challenging the AAP government’s direction to private unaided schools to accept nursery admission forms based only on the neighbourhood or distance criteria. Justice Manmohan had on February 9 reserved judgement on a batch of petitions filed by parents and two school groups against the Delhi government’s December 19, 2016 and January 7 notifications that made 298 private schools, built on Delhi Development Authority land, to accept nursery admission forms based only on the neighbourhood or distance norm.
