New Delhi, Feb 4: In a setback for the Arvind Kejriwal government, the Delhi High Court on Thursday restored the magement quota for nursery admissions in private, uided schools, as they are “entitled to full autonomy” in administ ration.

Justice Manmohan, in an interim order, stayed the Aam Aadmi Party government’s January 6 circular scrapping 62 criteria, including the magement quota but accepted 11 criteria proposed by the private schools’ association, having said that some of the 62 criteria fixed by private schools for nursery admissions were “unteble”.

Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said they would appeal the verdict.

Upholding the autonomy of private uided schools, the court said: “Promoters of a school who make investment at their own persol risk are entitled to full autonomy in administration including the right to admit students” and held that the government’s order infringed on their autonomy and students’ rights.
