As per the circulated figures, as many as 1,700 schools which are affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education, are likely to be fined as well as might receive a show-cause notice also, related to the withdrawal of affiliation. This step has been decided to be initiated after the infringements came into the picture as detected by the Online Affiliated School Information System (OASIS) of the CBSE Board.
As per the norms which have been laid down by the Board, it is mandatory for the school to not enroll more than 40 students in one section. Whereas, it has been found that nearly 1,700 schools across the country are not enrolling as per this norm. Therefore, to curb this, the Central Board of Secondary Education intends to pinpoint them by providing them with a show-cause notice related to the CBSE affiliation withdrawal as well as by imposing a fine of Rs. 500 or more for each child exceeding the stated limit.
