CBSE students’ fee structure to decide school’s affiliation; all that you must know

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has brought in some changes in its affiliation norms making it mandatory for schools to disclose their fee structure and not charge any type of extra fee. In case, a school is found involved in such practice, it may lose its affiliation.

Under the new bylaws, the application process has been made simple by reducing the paperwork from 14 documents to just two.

Speaking to the media on Thursday, Union HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar said that the Board will soon start processing an application for affiliation with just a no-objection certificate (NOC) and a self-sworn affidavit in hand.

The affidavit is to prove that a particular school is following the CBSE’s infrastructure and fee norms.

“There was a lot of duplicity of work. Earlier, once a school had the nod of the state government, the CBSE would reverify all the aspects already checked by the state government. This turned into a long-drawn process. Now the Board will not revisit any of the aspects already covered by the state government at the time of giving the school an NOC,” said Javadekar.

Besides, the HRD minister tweeted, “CBSE has done many changes in giving affiliation process to the schools; we have avoided unnecessary duplication of NOC at state level and centre level.”
