The Supreme Court has upheld the constitutionality of West Bengal Madrasah Service Commission Act 2008 observing that the Government has right to appoint teachers in aided-minority educational institutions
A bench of Justices Arun Mishra and U U Lalit delivered the verdict on Monday in the caseĀ SK Md Raffique v Managing Committee, Contai Rehmania High Madrasah and others.

The case concerned the validity of West Bengal Madrasah Service Commission Act 2008, which constituted a commission to appoint teachers in madrasas.

On petitions filed by managing committees of various madrasas, the Calcutta High Court in 2015 had declared the Act ultra vires Article 30 of the Constitution, which deals with the right of minorities to establish and administer educational institutions.
Challenging the HC verdict, appeals were filed in Supreme Court by few teachers, who had got appointment under the Act.
