New Delhi -  The Delhi High Court Wednesday reserved its verdict on a petition challenging two government notifications empowering unaided private schools to formulate their own criteria on nursery admission.

A division bench of Chief Justice D. Murugesan and Justice V.K. Jain reserved the order and asked all the parties to file their submission within two days.

"We are testing the constitutional validity of the notifications that gave you schools the power to formulate criteria," said the judges, adding that they were also dealing with the question of the applicability of the right to education law.

The court was hearing a petition filed by NGO Social Jurist against the two notifications of the union human resource development ministry and the Delhi government's directorate of education, empowering unaided private schools to formulate their own nursery admission criteria.

The PIL by the NGO through advocate Ashok Agarwal alleged that these two notifications had given a free hand to all unaided recognised private schools.
