In Haryana, 35 private schools have taken CBSE affiliation through brokers on the basis of forged documents. The School Education Department has prepared a list of these schools. Soon a show cause notice will be issued and a reply will be sought as to why their recognition should not be canceled? FIRs have been registered in both the districts against the broker who wrongly got affiliation to four schools in Kurukshetra and two in Kaithal.
Due to no action by the police, the tout is roaming freely and is still in touch with the private school operators. This matter is also in the cognizance of the SP of Kaithal and Kurukshetra district but no action is being taken due to the high reach of the school owners. ADGP CID Alok Mittal has also given instructions to take action against the touts who get CBSE affiliation on the basis of fake documents, yet the noose is not tightening.
The School Education Department has taken the whole matter seriously, as the signature of the Director of Secondary Education has also been forged while preparing the document. Education Minister Kanwar Pal Gurjar has given instructions to take strict action in this matter. Only after this, the officials of the Directorate of Education have prepared a list of 35 schools.
Running classes up to 12th on affiliation up to VIII
A reputed school in Gurugram having affiliation up to class VIII is also running classes IX to XII in another branch. It has branches in Maruti Kunj and DLF Phase-II. Now the School Education Department has tightened the noose against the school on the instructions of the High Court. Deepak Jain had filed a petition in the High Court against the school, alleging that there was no affiliation from ninth to twelfth.
School living certificate is also not being given. On the instructions of the High Court, the department got the investigation done and the allegations were found to be true. On violation of rules, a show cause notice has been issued to the school management and a response has been sought within 15 days. In the notice sent by the Director Secondary Education, Dr. Anshaj Singh, it has been said that why not cancel the recognition of both the schools and also impose a fine for violating the rules. If the school does not give a satisfactory answer, the department will take further action.
