Chennai, June 19, 2015: The Madras High Court today granted one year time to the Tamil Nadu government for formulating a comprehensive act to govern all private schools in the state.

The First Bench comprising Chief Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul and Justice Pushpa Sathyanarayana passed the order on a petition by former Union minister and PMK leader R Velu seeking cancellation of recognition granted to matriculation schools, except those which are enjoying recognition of the Madras and Madurai universities as on June 1, 1976.

The bench, after going through a copy of a letter written by the Principal Secretary to the government in this regard, also directed it to constitute an expert committee within a month to go into the formulation of the proposed act.

The petitioner had contended that the Code of Regulations for Matriculation Schools was deceitfully issued by the government contrary to the provisions of the Tamil Nadu Private Schools (Regulation) Act.

In its counter, the government had stated that to govern the matriculation, Anglo-Indian, oriental, nursery and primary schools in the light of the Tamil Nadu Uniform System of School Education Act 2010 and the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act,2009, a comprehensive act would be formulated.
