Plus Two: HC restrains Govt.

By Our Staff Reporter

KOCHI Sept. 22. A Division Bench of the Kerala High Court today restrained the State Government from implementing orders, if any, passed by the Government, granting sanction for starting new Plus Two schools in the State. The Bench comprising Justice K.S. Radhakrishnan and Justice K. Padmanabhan Nair issued the direction on a writ petition filed by Mathew, Local Manager, St. Thomas High School, Koomanthodu, Kannur. The petitioner alleged that the Cabinet had decided to grant sanction for starting Plus Two courses in 130 Government schools and 10 in aided schools. The decision had been taken without following the procedure laid down by the High Court.

Writ plea filed

The Malabar Devaswom Staff Union has filed a writ petition before the Kerala High Court challenging the validity of the Madras Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowment Act, which has been made applicable to temples in the Malabar area. It said the Act discriminated between persons working in temples in the erstwhile Malabar area and other temples in the matter of payment of salary. The Act was violative of the principle of equal pay for equal work.
