Court rules out interviews for kids and their parents

Staff Reporter

NEW DELHI: The Delhi High Court has said "No'' to the practice of subjecting tiny tots and their parents to interviews for admission to nursery and pre-nursery classes in private unaided schools in the Capital.

Granting more time to the Action Committee of Recognised Unaided Schools, an association of private unaided schools in the city, to discuss the Court's suggestion to consider an alternative mechanism for admission to these classes, excluding the current method of interviewing kids and their parents, a Division Bench of the Court comprising Justice Vijender Jain and Justice Rekha Sharma directed it to decide on the method by January 31.

The Bench further said that if the Committee failed to agree on an alternative mechanism by then, the Court would pass appropriate orders.

The Bench had during the last hearing earlier this month given a last chance to the Committee to frame a new mechanism for admissions to these classes.

However, R.K. Jain, appearing for the Action Committee, submitted that his client had not been able to devise a new mechanism.

Ashok Aggarwal, counsel for three appellants in the matter, submitted that the Committee could make use of the draw of lots method for these admissions, as Delhi Government-run schools here select poor students for admissions under the free-ship scheme by that method.
