New Delhi, Nov 2 (UNI) The Delhi High Court today asked the government to rein in the schools beginning the process of admission for pre-primary classes even before the implementation of the Ganguly Committee Report.

The CBSE Chairman Ashok Ganguly had submitted a report recommending age criterion of four years for admission in nursery classes.

Hearing a petition filed by Rakesh Goel through Ashok Agarwal, a division bench comprising Chief Justice M K Sharma and Justice Sanjeev Khanna slapped a notice on the government and Directorate of Education to reply by November 7.

They alleged that some private schools including Rukmani Devi and Jindal Public Schools had started the process of admission to pre-primary in flagrant violation of Ganguly Committee recommendations.

The Counsel submitted that Delhi Government had assured of implementing the Ganguly Committee report which has specified the minimum age of four years for children taking admission in the nursery classes.

"Even before the government could implement the report, some schools have started admission process, which amounted to contempt of court," he alleged.
