The Bench headed by Chief Justice YK Sabharwal allowed Vanasthali Public School in Patpatganj to run till this academic session.
The Vanasthali Senior Secondary School, which was operating from DDA land for the past several years, was sealed on November 30, despite a High Court order in favour of the school management.
