The Delhi government on Monday reached the Delhi High Court , demanding a single bench order that restores the management quota for nursery admissions in private autonomously schools in Delhi.
On February 4, Justice Manmohan in an interim order, holded the city government`s January 6 circular scrapping 62 criteria, including the management quota, but accepted 11 criteria proposed by the private schools` organization, saying some of the 62 criteria fixed for private schools for nursery admissions were "indefensible”. The court kept the management quota, saying the private unaided private schools are "entitled to full autonomy" in administration.
keeping the independence of private unaided schools, the court said: "Promoters of a school who make speculation at their own personal risk are entitled to full autonomy in management, including the right to admit students", and held that the government`s order infringed on their autonomy and students` rights. The government filing the appeal before division bench said the practice of management quota was "detrimental" for school education`s development in Delhi and hence "must be closed" and also it was "wholly non-transparent and susceptible to misuse".
"The private schools have most autonomy in day-to-day running, including the right to admit students," it supposed but asked the Delhi government to take stroke against err private schools which were "demanding cash" from guardians to admit kids under the management quota.
Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on January 6 said the result to scrap the organization quota was taken to bring in more lucidity in the admission process, while the obtainable provision of 25 % seats for students from underprivileged families would remain in place.
At present, the schools keep 20 % or even more seats under the administration quota, while 25 percent seats are reserved for students from economically weaker sections.The rest are open for the general category.
