The Delhi High Court Tuesday refused to interfere in the Delhi government's notifications empowering unaided private schools to formulate their own criteria on nursery admissions.

A division bench of Chief Justice D. Murugesan and Justice V.K. Jain also suggested that the central government consider including nursery admissions in the Right To Education (RTE) act.

Following the court's order, nursery admissions in the city will not be affected.
