AMU minority status | Institute of national importance must reflect national structure: Govt to SC | India News

1 min read

The Centre on Tuesday told the Supreme Court that an institution like Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) which is recognised as an institution of national importance by the Constitution “must reflect the national structure”.

Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, appearing for the Centre, told a CJI D Y Chandrachud-led seven-judge Constitution bench that is hearing a reference on AMU’s minority status that declaring it to be a minority institution would mean no reservation for those belonging to SC, ST, and Socially and Educationally Backward Class. He said that the court therefore “would also examine (the issue) from the point of view of social justice and equality”.

The bench also comprised Justices Sanjiv Khanna, Surya Kant, J B Pardiwala, Dipankar Datta, Manoj Misra and Satish Chandra Sharma.

The CJI pointed out that the provision exempting minority educational institutions from the application of reservation to SC, ST and SEBC was provided by the 93rd amendment to the Constitution.
