No writ can lie against an unaided minority private institution

Supreme Court: A bench of Lokur and Agrawal JJ., held that La Martiniere College, Lucknow is an unaided minority private institution and no writ would lie against it. The division bench was in error in allowing the writ and passing subsequent directions.

The case related to the non grant of admission to a student by the school which was challenged by the student before the Allahabad High Court. The Single Bench of the High Court had dismissed the petition, which was allowed by the Division Bench in the ‘interest of justice’. [La Martiniere College, Lucknow v. Vatsal Gupta, 2016 SCC OnLine SC 743 decided on 26-7-2016]
