SC posts hearing on nursery admissions issue for Monday
New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday posted for Monday the hearing on the issue of nursery admissions in the national capital and said that the relief in the category of inter-state transfer can be provided only to those who have filed a petition in the court.
A bench, headed by Justice HL Dattu, asked the counsel appearing for the parents of the admission seekers in the inter-state transfer category to place before it the list of the applicants.
The court made it clear that it cannot pass a general order and relief will be confined to those who are applicants before it.
Senior Advocate Raju Ramachandran, appearing for the Department of Education, submitted that after consideration and consultation with the major schools it was not possible to increase the number of seats by 5 to 6 for the inter-state transfer category.
The apex court had on April 11 put nursery admissions on hold again in Delhi schools after it put a halt on the operation of the high court`s April 3 interim order directing that those children who applied and were selected in draw of lot for neighbourhood and other categories, be admitted.
