2014 Delhi Nursery Admissions has suspended by High Court

Delhi High Court has suspended the nursery admission process in the national capital till March 24, 2014 including blocking the drawing of fresh lots for nursery admission process for all seats. The suspension was announced by Acting Chief Justice B.D. Ahmed and Justice Siddharth Mridul who have also asked the Delhi government to furnish details related to nursery admissions in unaided private schools.

 



"The draw of lots shall not take place. No admission be made till next date of hearing," said the bench, posting the matter for March 24.

The court was hearing an appeal of some parents who challenged the March 6 single judge order that the city government conduct a fresh draw of lots in the nursery admission process for all seats.

The single judge''s order said all candidates with equal marks shall be considered equal and their admission decided by a draw of lots.

According to IANS report, the parents filing the appeal said their wards were already declared selected for nursery admissions after the draw of lots and would have to repeat the process after the single judge''s order.

While the children have been selected in the first draw of lots, if a second draw of lots was conducted, their probability of getting selected would come down considerably, the parents said.

The dispute began after the Delhi government Feb 27 issued a notification scrapping the inter-state transfer category under which it used to give five additional points to children whose parents were transferred to the capital from another state.

While this notification was not suspended by the high court, Justice Manmohan ordered a fresh draw of lots for all seats where the allotment was affected by the quashing of the inter-state transfer category.

Justice Manmohan said that if draw of lots was not held amongst candidates who had secured equal marks, "it would result in discrimination and disadvantage to a few candidates".
