SC directs 60 percent seats for Central employees with transferable jobs in Sanskriti Schools

, 4:40 PM IST

New Delhi : The Supreme Court on Thursday directed 60 percent seats in Sanskriti Schools to be open for all Central Government employees with transferable jobs.

The government had earlier told the apex court that the wards of government employees, other than Group-A central government officials, can also be provided admission under 60 percent quota, which was earlier meant only for kids of this section in the prestigious Sanskriti School here.

The government and the school administration had sought an interim order allowing the institution to continue with the admission process under the old scheme till the matter was finally decided by the apex court.

They had challenged the Delhi High Court decision to set aside the 60 per cent quota forwards of group-A government officials, who are in the highest class of government servants, in the prestigious school.

The apex court had on December 15 last year agreed to hear the plea challenging the Delhi High Court decision.

60 percent seats in Sanskriti School are reserved for children of Group-A officers, 25 percent for those from the economically weaker sections, ten percent for wards of rest of the society and five percent for its own staff. (ANI)
