New Delhi: Parents waiting to get their children admitted in nursery will have to wait some more time.

The Delhi High Court Friday said its stay on fresh draw of lots for admission will continue till April 2 when it hears pleas against admission guidelines.
A bench of acting Chief Justice B D Ahmed and Justice S Mridul renotified the petitions, in which the fresh draw of lots were stayed and the admission process has been put on hold, saying it has to think on how to resolve the issue.

The bench also invited suggestions from all the parties so as to enable the court to take an informed decision.
Meanwhile, one petition challenging the alumni and sibling categories in nursery admission was dismissed as withdrawn after Delhi government submitted data which showed that a majority of the children admitted in the first draw of lots belonged to 70 pointers who came under the neighbourhood criteria.

The petition was withdrawn in view of the data submitted by Delhi government which said that as per information received from 723 schools around 60 per cent of the general category seats in these institutes were given to 70 pointers.
