Port Blair, Mar 12 (UNI) The Andaman and Nicobar Administration today announced that a clearance from the island's education department will be mandatory to run any private school in the union territory.
In an official release, the Education Department directed all the schools, which were yet to obtain permission, to do so by furnishing required information.
The department also observed that a number of private schools were already functioning in various parts of the island without obtaining permission from the administration, the official release noted.
Private schools were mushrooming in every corner of these islands ignoring the already existing rules.
It has been observed that the directorate was even not having the exact details of many schools like location, recognition status, classes run, medium of instruction, enrolment and management.
In last few years more than 20 private schools have come up in and around the city with people complaining against the schools, as they did not follow the rules of the government.
