Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has sent a warning to schools saying that legal a action would be initiated against those who permit students from non-affiliated institutions to appear for board exams in lieu of either financial or other barter-style agreement.
According to reports, the board will be monitoring the illegal activities of those schools which allow admissions falsely by brandishing the CBSE tag and then in Class 10 get their students enrolled on paper to another affiliated school for a fee.
CBSE has directed all the school principals to send a list of those students who are bona fide regular candidates of the school. CBSE is also conducting surprise inspection of schools in which infrastructure and candidate strength at Class 9/10/11 and 12 is verified. Strict action will be taken against the schools which sponsor students from non-affiliated schools.
CBSE schools are in high demand in Nagpur and out of 1500 schools within city limits, only 40 are affiliated to CBSE. Cases of schools in Nagpur doing 'favours' for others by allowing their students to appear for board exams have also come in limelight.
While certain education groups transferring their state board students to CBSE schools in Class 9 has also been reported. To be on the safer side, parents are suggested to check with the schools for their affiliation number. Information on affiliation of the school can also be availed on the CBSE website.
