The Delhi High Court on Monday directed the National Commission for Minorities (NCM) to file a status report explaining why many posts are lying vacant since October 2020.

A single-judge bench of Justice Prathiba M. Singh asked the NCM to file the said report within 10 days. The directions were passed while the court was hearing a petition for enforcing the provisions of the NCM Act thereby filling all vacant posts in the Commission.

The plea, filed by Abhay Ratan Bauddh through Advocate Vinay Kumar, sought a direction to immediately fill the vacant post of chairperson, member Buddhist, Christian, Parsi, Sikh and Jain, which are lying vacant in the National Commission for Minorities.

The plea said not filling the vacant post of Chairperson, member Buddhist, Christian, Parsi, Sikh and Jain in the National Commission for Minorities is violating the provisions of the said Act and it is affecting the safeguards and interests of the petitioner’s Buddhist minority community.
