Delhi High Court dismisses pleas against 6 Years+ age requirement for class 1 KV admission

On Monday, the Delhi High Court dismissed pleas challenging the minimum age criteria of six years for admission to Class 1 in Kendriya Vidyalaya for the upcoming academic session. “I am dismissing the petitions,” said Justice Rekha Palli who was dealing with a batch of petitions which argued that the sudden change in the minimum age requirement from five years to six years by Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan (KVS) was unreasonable and arbitrary.

Justice Palli said that the detailed order would be available either Monday or Tuesday. The Central government, represented by Additional Solicitor General Chetan Sharma, argued that there was no “vested right” in the petitioners to seek admission in KV and the petitioners would become eligible for admission next year.
