SC stays HC order on Sanskriti school admissions

New Delhi, Jan 21 (IANS) The Supreme Court on Thursday stayed a Delhi High Court order quashing the 60 percent admission quota for the wards of Group A officers of the All India Central Services in elite Sanskriti schools.

An apex court bench headed by Justice Anil R. Dave, however, said the quota will also cover the children of central government employees of civil, defence and allied services whose jobs are transferable.

The order came after Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi told the apex court that during a high court hearing, the government had filed an affidavit that the 60 percent quota in admissions would cover the wards of Group A, B and C employees of the central government with transferable jobs.

Staying the high court order and clearing the decks for admissions in Sanskriti schools, the apex court said: “No preferential treatment will be accorded to anyone in the admission process.”
