New Delhi: Guidelines issued by the transport department for granting license to motor driving schools might be changed again, as the Delhi High Court deemed “unfair” the provisions regarding infrastructure and financial solvency of the schools.

Delhi-High-CourtIn a hearing on Monday, the Delhi High Court stated that the “definition” of “close relatives” in the guidelines for granting license to motor driving training schools, by the Delhi government is very “vague.”

The All Delhi Motor Driving Training Schools Association, challenged these guidelines before the High Court stating that they violate the fundamental right to trade or occupation, as well as the right to equality of the companies running the schools.

According to the guidelines, “close relatives” of transport department officials cannot be a member or director of the school applying for license.

The association, in its appeal to the court, argued that the provision barring “close relatives of current transport department officials” violated the right to freedom of occupation under Article 19 as well as right to equality.
