The Allahabad High Court has directed that the accounts of the Institutions as Boys’ High School & College, Prayagraj and Girls’ High School & College, Prayagraj shall be operated jointly by the Principals of the respective Institutions and any other officer not below the rank of Additional District Magistrate appointed by the Collector, Prayagraj.

A Single Bench of Justice Salil Kumar Rai heard the petition filed by the Allahabad High School Society Prayagraj and Another.

The petition has been filed challenging the order dated 3.8.2022 passed by the Assistant Registrar Firms, Societies & Chits, District-Prayagraj as modified by order dated 11.8.2022 directing that the accounts of the Institutions named as Boys’ High School & College, Prayagraj and Girls’ High School & College, Prayagraj managed by the Allahabad High School Society, Prayagraj shall be operated jointly by the respective Principals of the said Institutions and Rt. Revd. Edgar Morris Dan who claims himself to be the Bishop/Chairman of the Diocese of Lucknow.

Previous to the order dated 3.8.2022, the accounts of the said Institutions were being operated singly by the respective Principals of the Institutions.

The Court observed that this appears from the arguments advanced by the counsel for the parties and from the records annexed with the petition that the dispute relates to control over the two Institutions named above and also the elected office bearers of the Society who claim themselves to control the two Institutions named above.

The said issues are subjudice before the Court in writ petition no 31962 of 2012, 34333 of 2015 and 4121 of 2022.

In the circumstances, the Court held that it would be appropriate that the petition is heard along with the petitions referred above.

“The respondents may file their counter affidavit within two weeks. The petitioner shall have one week thereafter to file his rejoinder affidavit.

As an interim measure, it is directed that the accounts of the Institutions named as Boys’ High School & College, Prayagraj and Girls’ High School & College, Prayagraj shall be operated jointly by the Principals of the respective Institutions and any other officer not below the rank of Additional District Magistrate appointed by the Collector, Prayagraj”, the order reads.

The Court has fixed the next hearing of the petition on November 21, 2022.
