Helpline No.: 011-23343782
Monday to Friday (3 - 4 PM)

The minority status certificate granted by this Commission or by any authority can be cancelled under Section 12C of the Act on violation of any of the conditions enumerated therein. 

If a minority status certificate has been obtained by practicing fraud or if there is any suppression of any material fact or any fundamental change of circumstances warranting cancellation of the earlier order, the authority concerned would be within its powers to cancel the minority status certificate after affording an opportunity of being heard to the management of the institution concerned, in conformity with the principles of natural justice. 

It is now well settled that any administrative order involving civil consequences has to be passed strictly in conformity with the principles of natural justice (See AIR 1978 S.C. 851). If any order relating to cancellation of minority status granted to a minority educational institution has been passed without affording an opportunity of being heard to such educational institution, it gets vitiated.
