New Delhi: Hearing a petition seeking the special guidelines for nursery admission, the Delhi High court on Tuesday refused to consider the Ganguly Committee report.

A bench of Chief Justice D Murugesan and Justice V K Jain said, “We are not going to consider the report. We are only concerned if the government notification is against the provisions of the Right to Education Act which makes education a fundamental right. This is only for the interests of the children and not the schools.”

The Court also said that allowing each unaided recognised private school to frame its own nursery admission criteria would be "unguided liberty or power" to the institution.

The bench also asked the lawyers who were representing schools that if the school administration can end the discrimination against children?”
Notifications issued by the Central as well as Delhi government have been challenged in the court. Under which, schools were allowed to frame their own admission criteria.
