CBSE to Penalize 1700 Schools

Under the new norms, the CBSE affiliated schools can have only 40 students in a section. But if the schools will violate this rule then they will be penalized. Around 1700 schools have been found as the defaulters. So, the Central Board of Secondary Education is planning to penalize those schools. The board has sent a new-cause notice to those schools to withdraw the affiliation.

CBSE has noticed the guilty schools through the board’s Online Affiliated School Information System (OASIS). These schools are around 7-8% of schools under CBSE. The board found this scam when the data stored in OASIS matched with the number of registered students of class 9, 10. In many cases, the registered students exceed the number of seats offered. But CBSE will allow a limited number of students for the registrations.

In result, either those schools will have to withdraw the affiliation or will have to pay a fine of Rs 500 or more per extra student.

the clampdown against ‘renting of seats’ by schools

CBSE has also taken this move to crackdown the renting of the seats. It includes the students who do not attend the regular classes and takes the private coachings.

Ideally, a classroom should have maximum 30 students. Then only, the schools will be able to provide the quality education and the students will get the other benefits. But, as per the reports, 25.7% of schools are having more than 30 students since 2015-16. The number was decreased as in 2009-10, around 43% of schools were having more than 30 students in a class. There are top five states which have more than 30 students per class. The states are Uttar Pradesh, Gujarat, Bihar, Jharkhand, and Assam.

After the proposal of the schools, CBSE allowed the KVs and JNVs to register 45 students per section. The board is providing one-time relaxation to these schools as the number of extra students in government schools is not large.

After the completion of the registration process, the board exams will begin. CBSE Date Sheet 2019 is expected to be released in the fourth week of December 2018. The exams may begin after February 15, 2019.
