HC's no to 50% minorities in minority institutions


CHENNAI: The Madras high court on Wednesday quashed a central authority order that said minority educational establishments must admit no longer less than 50% of students belonging to the group involved every year to retain the status.

The order dated April 5, 2018, had brought in the additional tenet for grant of minority status to educational establishments.

Allowing the plea moved via the Institute of the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary, Justice T Raja said the state executive didn't have the ability to pass such orders underneath the National Commission for Minority Educational Institutions Act, 2004.

The petitioner had argued that the federal government order suffered from executive malafide because it sought not directly to disclaim minority status to educational establishments established and administered via minority communities via imposing a burdensome and impractical condition, editing the principles that have stood the take a look at of time.


In the absence of any grievance from a minority group that its scholars were denied admission in an establishment run via it, there was no foundation for the federal government order, the petitioner said.

There can't be a not unusual rule right through the state to confess no less than 50% minority scholars in such establishments as a condition for minority status, whilst the Christian population was handiest 6.1% in the state, the petitioner said.


The Supreme Court has time and again held that the minority establishments gain minority persona as a result of they had been established and administered via the minority group and no longer as a result of the selection of minority scholars admitted therein. If the minority status was related to the ratio of admission of minority scholars it's going to be fluctuating in minority persona/status, each year. There won't ever be a walk in the park in the nature of the institution. That was no longer the intention of the founding fathers of the Constitution and therefore, the judgment of the apex court can't be misinterpreted via the executive government, the petitioner argued.
