Question

Smita, an Indian student belonging to a minority group, was denied admission by a government college in India because she was not fluent in the Official Language of the Union.

Which of the following are true in this case?
  1. Article 29 of the Indian Constitution is violated
  2. Article 342 of the Indian Constitution is violated
  3. A government run educational institute cannot deny admission on the basis of language
  4. The institute has the right not to admit her according to its own guidelines


Solution

The correct options are
A Article 29 of the Indian Constitution is violated
C A government run educational institute cannot deny admission on the basis of language
Article 29 of the Indian Constitution protects the rights of the minorities. Article 29 (1) states that any citizen residing in India has the right to safeguard his/her language, script or culture. Article 29 (2) states that any educational institute run or funded by the government cannot deny admission on the basis of caste, religion, race, or language only. Since this is a fundamental right, Smita can take the case to the Supreme Court!
