Court notice to Delhi government on pre-school admissions
The Delhi High Court Wednesday issued notice to the Delhi government on an NGO’s plea for direction to prohibit private schools in the national capital from admitting children less than four years of age in pre-primary classes.
Accusing various unaided private schools of admitting children below four years in their pre-primary classes, the NGO in it public interest litigation (PIL) sought a direction to the government to stop this practice.
Taking note of the PIL, a division bench of Acting Chief Justice A.K. Sikri and Justice Rajiv Sahai Endlaw issued a notice to the Delhi government returnable with its response by Nov 23.
