The Allahabad High Court recently dismissed a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) plea filed seeking a direction to the Uttar Pradesh Government to take a decision for reorientation of the teacher-student ratio in the Schools being run by the Department Of Basic Education in Uttar Pradesh

The Bench of Chief Justice Rajesh Bindal and Justice Jaspreet Singh perused the pleadings and noted that no particulars had been furnished by the petitioner, one Gaya Prasad.

Apart from reorientation of the teacher-student ratio in the Basic Schools, the petitioner had also sought a direction to the State Government to ensure that the teacher-student ratio is maintained for the successful implementation of the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act, 2009

Noting that vague assertions were made in the plea, the Court remarked thus:

"The Court finds that from the perusal of the pleadings, no particulars have been furnished. Vague assertions have been made. Moreover in the light of the averments made in the petition, it cannot be said that any subsisting cause of action is made out. In view of the aforesaid, we are not inclined to entertain the aforesaid petition, consequently, the petition is dismissed." 

It may be noted that one Gaya Prasad had moved the court with the following prayers:

"(i) issue a writ order or direction in the nature of mandamus commanding the state government to ensure that the teacher taught ratio in the schools run by the Basic Education Board is maintained which has suffered a steep fall due to the reason that the Resource coordination of teaching activity has been taken away from experienced hands and put into the hands of persons who lack the training and experience for successful discharge of the same. in the interest of justice.

(ii) issue a writ order or direction in the nature of mandamus commanding the opposite party to take a decision for reorientation of the teacher-student ratio in Basic Schools and ensure for its steady maintenance for successful implementation of the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act, 2009, in the interest of justice."
