too, billed as the biggest tax reform since Independence. Rule 255 has been invoked. Ansari adjourned the House. Now that would be true secularism. Stern action must be taken against those found violating regulations.But is this possible given today’s education laws The answer sadly is no Parents and protesters clamouring for new laws or stricter regulations for schools especially those protesting in front of Ryan International ought to know that the changes they are demanding cannot be enforced on schools such as Ryan International And the Haryana government can’t take over such schools either even though many are demanding that Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar do so in this instance Chapter IV Section 10 of the Haryana School Education Act 1995 states: “If the manager of any aided school has indulged in any financial irregularity or administrative mismanagement or neglected to perform any of his duties imposed on it by or under this Act or any rule made thereunder” then the management of such school can be taken over for a limited period not exceeding two years Ryan International is an aided school that is partly funded by the government but it is also a minority-run institution And Section 11 clearly states that Section 10 doesn’t apply to minority school – “Nothing contained in section 10 shall apply to aided minority school” The story is same in all states Regulations that are normally applicable to aided or unaided non-minority schools do not apply to minority ones The root cause of this anomaly is our Constitution Article 30 Clause 1 gives minorities the right to establish and administer educational institutions It reads: All minorities whether based on religion or language shall have the right to establish and administer educational institutions of their choice This is also the reason why Right to Education Act which mandates that schools reserve 25 percent of the seats for students from disadvantaged groups doesn’t apply to either aided or unaided private minority-run institutions The founders of the Indian Republic intended to create a protection clause for the minorities so that they could preserve their culture and language through the medium of educational institutions in case the threat of majoritarianism arose However over the years this has created separate legal regimes when it comes to education which ends up making a hash of rule of law Earlier this month the Christian Medical College (CMC) in Vellore Tamil Nadu refused to admit MBBS students on basis of National Eligibility-cum Entrance Test (NEET) The college argued that NEET violated itsrights as a minority institution CMC Vellore allots 85 percent seats to Christians Under NEET this arrangement would have stood but instead of the college selectingstudents in a discretionary manner NEET would have chosen the students on the basis of their rankings One can gauge from this example how evengiving up a fraction of autonomy is an anathema to minority institutions No one is arguing that minorityinstitutions should feel free to do as they like and flout the laws of the land by citingArticle 30 (1) In Sidhirajbhai v State Of Gujarat the Supreme Court ruled that Article 30 (1) did not give absolute power to minorities and said that the government can set regulations However they must pass two tests: a) The regulations must be reasonable (b) It must be regulative of the educational character of the institution and conducive to making the institution an effective vehicle of education for minority community or other persons who resort to it These two tests give vast powers to minority institutions over their non-minority counterparts The recent rush among "strong" communities like Lingayats to get the minority tag can be better understood in this context The perks are simply too lucrative: The institutionsdon’t have to follow SC/ST/OBC quota while filling faculty posts they can hire as many non-minority teachers as they need set independent admission criteria and can avail of state aid up to 95 percent And as noted above the State can’t take over these institutions except when they offer unconditional surrender The United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government made matters worse by passing the 93rd constitutional amendment specifically excluding minority institutions from government regulations in the field of education It amended Article 15 and added a new clause Article 15 (5): Nothing in this article or in sub-clause (g) of clause (1) of article 19 shall prevent the State from making any special provision by law for the advancement of any socially and educationally backward classes of citizens or for the Scheduled Castes or the Scheduled Tribes in so far as such special provisions relate to their admission to educational institutions including private educational institutions whether aided or unaided by the State other than the minority educational institutions referred to in clause (1) of article 30 This unprecedented autonomy restricts the ability of the State to frame even common sense regulations and these institutions can’t be held accountable in case unfortunate incidents such as the murder of the 7-year-old student occur This grievous error must be set right at the earliest The only way to do that is to amend Article30 (1) Of all the fundamental rights enshrined in the Constitution this is the only article which doesn’t place any restrictions on itsimplementation and leaves it to the courts to decide which restrictions imposed by the government are reasonable and which are not This needs to change Quickly Rule of law must reign supreme?
