New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Friday is expected to take a decision on the minimum age criteria for children seeking nursery admissions in the national capital. It currently stands at 3 years. But the Ganguly committee had in 2007 proposed that the age limit be raised to 4.
According to the committee, children were emotionally, mentally and physically better equipped to start school at the age of 4. It would also reduce the pressure on parents as well as children.
However, the Delhi government had asked for an extension of the time limit to apply this age criteria, saying it would not be feasible to adopt such guidelines in a hurried manner.
