SC Stays AAP’s Decision to Scrap Quota In Private Schools

Delhi High Court on Thursday (February 4) stayed AAP government’s order scrapping management quota in nursery admissions in private unaided schools, saying the decision was taken without the authority of law. It also stayed the Delhi government’s January 6 order with regard to 11 other admission criteria, including issues like proven track record of parents during admission of their children, music and sports, that were also scrapped. Justice Manmohan in his interim order said that the government’s January 6 decision was also in contravention of the Lieutenant Governor’s 2007 order on nursery admissions in private unaided schools. He said the autonomy of private unaided schools with regard to nursery admissions cannot be restricted by an office order and has to be done under the law. The court, however, added that if there were any malpractices with regard to nursery admission criteria in private unaided schools, then they should be investigated and taken to their logical conclusion.
