Under Secretary in the Tribal Affairs Ministry P K Sahoo told PTI that EMRSs are facing issues while applying for CBSE affiliation and the matter has been taken up with the board.

Soon schools will not be allowed to use 'public' in their names

"The board has granted regular affiliation to schools managed by the Ministry of Tribal Affairs and run by state governments as Eklavya Model Residential Schools. Therefore, it is once again clarified that these schools are not required to apply under the independent private school category," the letter read.

"EMRSs are required to apply for affiliation in prescribed format with fee and other requirements as applicable for regular category of schools," it said. The board said that in view of the hardship being faced by schools and students, the last date for submission of online application has been extended up to June 30 for EMRSs "as a special case".

The ministry has requested state governments to make use of this opportunity and apply for CBSE affiliation, Sahoo said. There are around 226 EMRSs functional across the country and 68 of them are affiliated to CBSE. The last date for submission of application for CBSE affiliation was March 31.
