The Supreme Courton Fridaydismissed a petition filed by two private schools managements challenging the ban imposed by the Delhi High Court on interviews of nursery kids and their parents at the time of admissions.

A bench comprising the Chief Justice-designate KG Balakrishnan and Justice DK Jain, however, granted liberty to the petitioners to approach the High Court afresh for raising their objections vis-a-vis the Ganguly committee recommendations.

It might be mentioned that the High Court-appointed Ganguly committee had come out with a slew of suggestions to dispense with the pernicious practice of interviewing kids and their parents by school managements.
