The Delhi high court will on Tuesday hear a case relating to nursery admission notification issued by the state government that made it mandatory for private unaided minority schools to admit students in the unreserved category on the basis of neighbourhood criteria.

In the last hearing, the court had stayed the Delhi government’s notification for 15 to 20 minority schools.
