53. Revocation of certificate.
(1) the competent authority may, if it has reasonable cause to believe that the holder of the certificate of registration granted under sub-section (2) of section 52 has
(a) made a statement in relation to any application for the issue or renewal of the certificate which is incorrect or false in material particulars; or
(b) committed or has caused to be committed any breach of rules or any conditions subject to which the certificate was granted, it may, after making such inquiry, as it deems fit, by order, revoke the certificate:
Provided that no such order shall be made until an opportunity is given to the holder of the certificate to show cause as to why the certificate should not be revoked.
(2) Where a certificate in respect of an institution has been revoked under sub-section (1), such institution shall cease to function from the date of such revocation:
Provided that where an appeal lies under section 54 against the order of revocation, such institution shall cease to function
(a) where no appeal has been preferred immediately on the expiry of the period prescribed for the filing of such appeal, or
(b) where such appeal has been preferred, but the order of revocation has been upheld, from the date of the order of appeal.
(3) On the revocation of a certificate in respect of an institution, the competent authority may direct that any person with disability who is an inmate of such institution on the date of such revocation, shall be
(a) restored to the custody of her or his parent, spouse or lawful guardian, as the case may be, or
(b) transferred to any other institution specified by the competent authority.
(4) Every institution which holds a certificate of registration which is revoked under this section shall, immediately after such revocation, surrender such certificate to the competent authority.
