The Delhi High Court today, February 17 allowed 298 private unaided schools to go ahead with the nursery admission process but said that it will be subject to the final outcome of the city government’s appeal on the issue.

A bench of Chief Justice G Rohini and Justice Sangita Dhingra Sehgal, which was hearing the Delhi government’s appeal against a single judge’s interim order that had stayed its nursery admission directive on the neighbourhood criterion, said that the entire process to admit children will be subject to the final outcome of the matter.

“Having regard to the fact that the admission process is already been in operation, it would not be proper to stop it.

“We, however, make it clear that whatever steps have been taken by the parties will be subject to the final outcome of the appeal that is pending,” the bench said.

“We will examine the issue. Meanwhile, a copy of the petition be served on the respondents (including two school associations and the parents),” the bench said and fixed the matter for further consideration on February 22.

It also sought the response of the two school associations and the parents on the Delhi government’s appeal in the case.

Additional Solicitor General (ASG) Sanjay Jain, appearing for the Directorate of Education (DoE), submitted that in the absence of the neighbourhood criterion, schools will accept admission in an arbitrary and opaque manner, and even justify charging exorbitant fees from the parents.

Maintaining that the order passed by the single judge was “totally wrong”, “erroneous” and “against the law”, the Delhi government sought a stay on the operation of the interim order.

In two directives on December 19, 2016 and January 7, the Delhi government had made it compulsory for the 298 private schools built on Delhi Development Authority land to admit children for nursery who live in that neighbourbood or stay within a certain distance from the school.

Ordering an interim stay of the January 7 notification till the final disposal of the pleas challenging the Delhi government’s order, Justice Manmohan had earlier said that “a student’s educational fate can’t be relegated to only his/her position on a map” and had termed the criterion as “arbitrary and discriminatory”.

The school groups had alleged that the Delhi government had “discriminated” among schools as the neighbourhood criteria had been applied against only 298 schools and not been made mandatory for 1,400 other schools in the city.

Delhi Nursery Admissions 2017: Sell jalebis, instead of nursery seats, says Manish Sisodia

In the middle of admissions, a well-known Delhi school has denied admittance to parents having more than two kids.

  • Himachal Pradesh beats Kerala in learning outcomes: ASER
  • Delhi Nursery admissions: High Court stays government notification, minority schools are entitled to admit students
  • Kerala University launches massive online open courses (MOOC)
  • Gujarat soon to have university for plastic industry

Every year, the nursery admissions create a lot of hue and cry.

Following the schedule, this year, the admission process began on January 2 in around 1,400 private schools in Delhi-NCR and is scheduled to close by March 31.

While commenting on the Delhi High Court putting a stay on a city government notification that made it mandatory for private unaided minority schools to admit kids in nursery under the unreserved category and on the basis of neighbourhood criteria, Delhi Education Minister Manish Sisodia on Friday lashed out at private schools in the city, saying those who wanted to ‘sell’ nursery seats should sell ‘jalebis’ instead.

More about government’s nursery admission criteria:

  • With government releasing the notification for 298 private schools, which are built on DDA land, it is mandatory for schools to give priority to applicants who live within 1-6 kilometre radius of the school as their land allotment letters mandate it

Further, the government waived off the management quota, which was 20 per cent last year

Here’s why schools approached the court:

Recently, few schools, including minority institutes, went to the court against the direction, saying it violated their autonomy.

What did the court say?

  • Justice Manmohan said: “This court is of the prima facie view that minority schools are entitled to admit students in their own manner as long as there is no mismanagement.” While granting the interim stay, the court noted that the government cannot interfere in the day-to-day functioning of the minority schools including their right to administer and admit students.
  • Meanwhile, giving a sigh of relief to parents, Sisodia in recent Indian Express report said, “I am fighting for the parents who fall prey to these teaching shops.”

  • The school associations filed the present writ petition in which the statutory notification issued by the lieutenant governor has been challenged but the prayer has been framed in a way that a clause of Delhi Development Authority (DDA) is challenged, the NGO, through advocate Khagesh Jha, argued
  • The single judge is hearing petitions challenging the Delhi government’s January 7 notification that made 298 private schools – built on DDA land – accept admission forms based only on the neighbourhood or distance criteria

  • India is unprepared to educate and train its young population: Report

With nursery admissions being conducted in full swing in the capital, parents and officials at 298 schools in the national capital running on DDA land are eagerly waiting for notification of guidelines.

As per reports, on the second day, the admission process continued for 1,400 schools.

Last week, the government directed the 298 schools, which include some of the best in the city, to withhold their nursery admission process till the time new guidelines are issued. Meanwhile, for the rest of the schools, the guidelines remain the same as last year.

These 298 schools were given the authority to conduct separate admission on the condition that they will give preference to applicants from the neighbourhood.While waiting eagerly for the guidelines, Tripta Das, a parent, said, “The list of such schools has not been made available on the admissions website. The entire city can’t be expected to know which school is running on DDA land and which is not. There is lot of confusion and chaos because of this.”

Admission criteria:

  • During the admission process, parents can use points set by the government like distance from school, parents as alumni, sibling in the same school, girl child etc.
  • However, schools will not give admission on the pretext of the applicant’s parents education, or if the child is proficient in music, or if the parent is vegetarian
  • Further, admission through management quota will be allowed
  • While following their criteria and points for admission, schools still have to follow the list of 51 criteria, set by the government
  • As per the data, the abolished criteria include parent’s education, parent’s profession, age, oral test and interview
