Appendix IV
MINORITY INSTITUTIONS
1. Determination of Minority Character of an
Educational Institution
The benefits of Article 30(1) of Indian Constitution can be claimed by the community only on proving
that it is a religious or linguistic minority and the institution was established by it. The question of proof
in a Court of Law is regulated by the provisions of the Indian Evidence Act. This act requires that when
there is written document, other evidence is to be excluded but if there is no written document, other
evidence is admissible.
2. Object of Establishment of Minority Educational
Institutions
it is not always necessary that the objects for which a minority may establish an educational institution
must include the conservation of its language, script or culture. Article 30(1 )only emphasises that the
body establishing and administering an educational institution belongs to a minority based on religion
or language. It says nothing about the character of education to be imparted by them. Hence an
institution will be a minority institution even if it imparts secular education. Once it is proved to be a
minority institution, the character of education to be imparted and of administration will be at the choice
of those who can administer it. In these matters, the choice cannot be of anyone also.
3. Fulfilment of Statutory Requirements for seeking
Recognition
An Institution seeking recognition must fulfil the statutory requirements concerning the academic
standards, the qualifications of teachers, and of the students seeking admission. It must have the
financial resources and the capability to run on a sustained basis. When the applications seeking
recognition are not cosidered favourably ,grounds of rejection must be communicated to the educational
institutions filling such applications so as to enable them to overcome obstacle to their early recognition.
4. Medium of instruction in Minority Educational
Institutions
The State Government or the University is not empowered to prescribe the medium of instruction to be
followed by minority educational institutions. However, in case of institutions receiving grants -in- aid,
there are certain standards or proficiency to be observed. No decision, within our knowledge lays
down that teaching of a State language compulsorily is within such conditions for grant of aid., But if
such a condition is laid down, the institution receiving the aid will be well advised to observe it.
67
5. Constitution of Governing Bodies in Minority
Educational Institutions
The Minority educational institution must be free to induct competent and reputed individuals from
other communities in the Managing Committees /Governing Bodies.The minority character of an
institution is not impaired so long as the constitution of the Managing Committee /Governing,Body
provides for an effective majority to the members of the minority community.
The State should not have any power, directly or through the: University, to direct the constitution of the
governing bodies in a manner so as to deprive a majority of the effective administration of its educational
institutions. However, the State or the University may lay down general guidelines to ensure that only’
qualified persons find a place in the Governing Bodies.
6. Disciplinary Control over Staff in Minority Educational
Institutions
