Who: Management of minority educational institution cannot exploit its employees
What: Ruling given by Allahabad HC
When: 10 September 2015

Allahabad High Court in its judgment dated 10 September 2015 ruled that management of minority educational institution cannot exploit and harass its employees by taking provisions of the Article 30(1) of the Fundamental Rights of Indian Constitution.

Article 30(1) reads all minorities, whether based on religion or language, shall have the right to establish and administer educational institutions of their choice.

The observation came during hearing of a petition filed by a Kanpur based College principal, who was expelled by the management of minority education institute without proper inquiry. The Principal was sacked on charges of financial irregularities.

Quashing the college management order, Justice MC Tripathi said that before sacking the Principal, it was necessary to give chance of hearing and counter examination of witnesses but inquiry officer did not follow the procedure.

As per the Court, the management violated the UP Intermediate Education Act, 1921.
