Mumbai, Jul 24 (UNI) The Maharashtra government today warned the CBSE, ICSE and IB schools that if they do not follow the rules and regulations of the government, their students would not be admitted in standard 11th in the state.
The announcement, that would make school management and parents whose children study in these schools unhappy, was made during a calling attention notice given by Chandrashekhar Bavankule (BJP) and others.
State minister of state for school education Hasan Mushrif said in the backdrop of several complaints against these schools, the government was forced to act.
The complaints against these schools include charging excessive amount for school materials and their mandatory purchase from the school only. In Maharashtra, there are 500 such schools, while in all 3,000 English medium schools are affiliated to SSC board.
The minister admitted that the 500 schools are under the ambit of Central government and are run on permanent non-grant basis.
The house was more or less unanimous in saying that these schools hardly entertain any request from the officials.
The minister added that the permanent non-grant schools will be converted into grant schools step by step.
