Nepal administers CBSE system in schools
Nepal has hereby asked five of its Private schools that teach Indian Curriculum to stop new admissions in order to administer the education sector.

Mahshram Sharma, the spokesperson at the Ministry said "The schools running courses under Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) of India are required to take permission from the Ministry of Education and we have taken steps to regulate these educational institutions".

These five schools include, Modern Indian School, Rai School, Alok Vidyashram, Rupy's International School and Chadbagh School, all situated in Kathmandu.

Over 6,000 students are enrolled in some 14 private schools in Nepal teaching Indian curriculum and CBSE courses. The Indian government grants scholarships to more than 2,000 Nepalese students every year.

Although these schools are running CBSE courses after taking 'No Objection Letter' from the Embassy of India and duly registering at the Chief District Office, they were not informed about taking permission from the Education Ministry for running Indian courses, said KP Pandey, Principal of Rai School.

These schools were also frequently targeted by pro-Maoist students and teachers unions for teaching Indian courses, claiming that it would harm national interest. Recently, the DAV Sushil Kedia Higher Secondary School, which is also run under the CBSE, has been targeted by students and teachers unions affiliated to the CPN-Maoist, the breakaway faction of the Unified CPN-Maoist, apparently for teaching Indian subjects.
