The bench asked the city government, the Centre and the CBSE to file affidavits on the matter and posted it for further hearing on November 28.
The plea, filed by Yusuf Naqi through his counsel G M Akhtar, said the allocation of science and commerce streams have been done in an uneven manner which cannot be justified, thus causing grave injustice and prejudice to the pupils here.
"There are a total of 41 government schools in central Delhi, wherein only 2 schools offer science stream throughout the entire district, whereas in north east district of Delhi, there are as many as 18 schools out of total 38 which offer science stream at intermediate level," the plea said.
The plea also alleged that since only two government schools in central Delhi have the science stream in their curriculum, the willing students of this area are required to travel to other districts of the National Capital Territory.
