Hon'ble Vineet Saran, J
By means of Government Order dated 7.9.2006, applications were invited from permanently recognized unaided Junior High Schools for being taken on grant-in-aid of the State Government. The eligibility criteria of the applicants were mentioned in the said Government Order. One such condition enumerated in paragraph 2(13) was that only institutions imparting education from classes 6 to 8 would be eligible to apply, meaning thereby that those institutions which were imparting education to classes lower than class 6 or classes higher than class 8 would not be entitled to apply. Pursuant to the said Government Order, an advertisement was issued by the Directorate of Basic Education on 9.9.2006, inviting applications from eligible institutions, in which also a similar condition was imposed, being condition no.12.
Aggrieved by the said condition, petitioners educational institutions have filed this writ petition primarily with the prayer for quashing the condition no. 2(13) contained in the Government Order dated 7.9.2006, as well as condition no. 12 of the advertisement dated 9.9.2006 issued by the Directorate of Basic Education. A further prayer has also been made for issuing a direction to the respondents to consider the Junior High School section of the petitioner institutions for being brought on grant-in-aid in pursuance of the Government Order dated 7.9.2006, ignoring the aforesaid condition.
I have heard learned counsel for the parties.

Writ Petition No. 61343 of 2006 Committee of Management Mata Tapeshwari Saraswati Vidya Mandir Uchchttar Madhyamik Vidyalaya, Maradah, District Ghazipur and others vs. State of U.P. and others, this writ petition is allowed and condition no. 2(13) of the Government Order dated 7.9.2006 issued by the State Government as well as condition no. 12 of the advertisement dated 9.9.2006 issued by the Directorate of Basic Education, U.P. are quashed. The respondent authorities are directed to consider the petitioner institutions (along with the other applicants) for their Junior High School section being brought on grant-in-aid in pursuance of the Government Order dated 7.9.2006, ignoring the aforesaid conditions of the Government Order and the advertisement.
No order as to cost.
