A division bench of the Punjab and Haryana high court on Friday quashed a 2014 notification of National Commission for Minority Educational Institution (NCMEI) granting minority status to the St Kabir School in Sector 26.

The judgement came from the bench of justice AG Masih and justice Sandeep Moudgil on the plea from Chandigarh administration, in which a single bench judgement from 2021, was challenged. Notably, in March 2020, a high court single bench had dismissed an earlier 2018 plea from the UT against the school on the issue.
