“No fresh guidelines till the judgement is pronounced,” the court said, adding that it would deliver the verdict soon.
The court was hearing a batch of petitions filed by the parents against guidelines issued by Delhi’s Lieutenant Governor on December 18, 2013 on nursery admission.
The court, which reserved its order after hearing arguments from both the sides, also said that the petitions will become infructuous if the government issues fresh guidelines.
“All the exercise carried out till date will be futile,” it said.
Under the earlier system, out of a total 100 points, 70 were given if the child lives in the neighbourhood of the school, additional 20 were given if a sibling is studying there, five points more if either parent is an alumni and another five points if it is an inter-state transfer case.
Draw of lots were held at each point level. Thereafter, the government had on February 27 issued an order abolishing the 5 points that were being awarded in inter-state transfer cases.
