Appendix IV


1. Determination ofMinority Character of an


The benefits ofArticle 30(1) of Indian Constitution can be claimed by the community only onproving

that it is areligious or linguistic minority and the institution was established by it. Thequestion of proof

in a Court of Law isregulated by the provisions of the Indian Evidence Act. This act requires thatwhen

there is writtendocument, other evidence is to be excluded but if there is no written document,other

evidence isadmissible.

2. Object ofEstablishment of Minority Educational


it is not alwaysnecessary that the objects for which a minority may establish an educationalinstitution

must include theconservation of its language, script or culture. Article 30(1 )only emphasisesthat the

body establishing andadministering an educational institution belongs to a minority based onreligion

or language. It saysnothing about the character of education to be imparted by them. Hence an

institution will be aminority institution even if it imparts secular education. Once it is proved tobe a

minority institution,the character of education to be imparted and of administration will be at thechoice

of those who canadminister it. In these matters, the choice cannot be of anyone also.

3. Fulfilment ofStatutory Requirements for seeking


An Institution seekingrecognition must fulfil the statutory requirements concerning the academic

standards, thequalifications of teachers, and of the students seeking admission. It must havethe

financial resourcesand the capability to run on a sustained basis. When the applications seeking

recognition are notcosidered favourably ,grounds of rejection must be communicated to theeducational

institutions fillingsuch applications so as to enable them to overcome obstacle to their earlyrecognition.

4. Medium of instructionin Minority Educational


The State Governmentor the University is not empowered to prescribe the medium of instruction to be

followed by minorityeducational institutions. However, in case of institutions receiving grants-in- aid,

there are certainstandards or proficiency to be observed. No decision, within our knowledge lays

down that teaching ofa State language compulsorily is within such conditions for grant of aid., Butif

such a condition islaid down, the institution receiving the aid will be well advised to observeit.


5. Constitution ofGoverning Bodies in Minority


The Minorityeducational institution must be free to induct competent and reputedindividuals from

other communities inthe Managing Committees /Governing Bodies.The minority character of an

institution is notimpaired so long as the constitution of the Managing Committee /Governing,Body

provides for aneffective majority to the members of the minority community.

The State should nothave any power, directly or through the: University, to direct the constitutionof the

governing bodies in amanner so as to deprive a majority of the effective administration of itseducational

institutions.However, the State or the University may lay down general guidelines to ensurethat only

qualified personsfind a place in the Governing Bodies.

6. DisciplinaryControl over Staff in Minority Educational


While the managementsshould exercise the disciplinary control over staff, it must be ensured that

they hold an inquiryand follow a fair procedure before punishment is given. With a view topreventing

the possible misuseof power by the management of the Minority Educational Institutions, the State

has the regulatory powerto safeguard the interests of their employees and their service conditions

including procedurefor punishments to be imposed.

7. Admission ofStudents in Minority Educational


The minorityeducational institutions must have the freedom to give special consideration tothe students

of their owncommunity in matters of admission. Government should not insist on admission inthese

institutions beingthrown open to all strictly in order of merit. The Government cannot enforcethe rules

if reservation infavour of Scheduled Caste, Scheduled Tribes and other backward communities for

admission of studentsin these institutions.

In granting admissionto the children belonging to the minority community itself, rules of natural

justice and fair.playmust be applied and donations or other extraneous factors should not be allowed

so as to discriminateagainst the less advantaged children from the same minority community.

8. Appointment ofTeachers in Minority Educational


The Government cannotenforce the rules of reservation in favour of Scheduled Castes, Scheduled

Tribes and otherBackward classes for the post of teachers and other staff in minorityeducational
