The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has taken a crucial decision to waive off the penalty imposed on schools for not updating data in the OASIS portal.
OASIS (Online Affiliated School Information System) is a system/platform created by the Board wherein CBSE affiliated schools are required to update certain information in order to keep them in the loop. However, the Board has decided to waive off the penalty considering the financial constraints of the schools due to the Covid-19 pandemic situation.
“It has been observed that many schools could not update the data in the OASIS portal due to lockdown owing to the COVID-19 pandemic. The schools could not function continuously and therefore, there was an inordinate delay in updating the OASIS portal which caused financial penalty on the schools,” the CBSE said in a circular.
Considering the financial constraints of the schools, the Competent Authority of the Board has decided to waive off the penalty imposed on all the schools for non-updation of data in the OASIS portal.
Therefore, the following decisions have been taken:-
-All the schools, whose penalty amount is less than Rs. 1 Lakh, are required to pay the actual amount of penalty imposed and update the data within one month.
-All the schools, whose penalty amount is more than Rs. 1 Lakh, are required to pay the amount of Rs. 1 Lakh only penalty and update the data within one month.
CBSE has further asked school authorities to update the OASIS data from time to time as per the guidelines. “No further waive off from the penalty of non updation of OASIS data shall be granted to the schools,” the circular added.
