The Supreme Court on Wednesday gave a go ahead for nursery admissions in Delhi and said parents who moved court against the Delhi government’s decision to scrap the inter-state transfer will get seats in schools for their children for this academic year, according to reports.

The apex court also quashed the February 27 notification issued by the Delhi government for nursery admission.

The SC asked the state government to raise number of seats, if required, to accommodate the 24 students who approached it.

On Monday, the SC had reserved its order for two more days on the plea of the parents on inter-state transfers who have sought admission of their children.

On April 11, the SC had put on hold the April 3 Delhi high court nod to the schools to go ahead with the admission process except in cases of admissions of inter-state transfers.

The high court, while permitting admission under all the categories, had said the nursery admissions under inter-state category would have to wait as it would hear the matter.
