Article 30(2) of Indian Constitution

Part of: Prelims and GS II – Fundamental Rights

Context The Supreme Court held in a judgment that the right of an institution, whether run by a majority or minority community, to get government aid is not a fundamental right. 

  • Both have to equally follow the rules and conditions of the aid.

Key takeaways 

  • Whether it is an institution run by the majority or the minority, all conditions that have relevance to the proper utilisation of the grant-in-aid by an educational institution can be imposed. 
  • The Bench said if the government made a policy call to withdraw aid, an institution cannot question the decision as a “matter of right”. An institution is free to choose to accept the grant with the conditions or go its own way.
