CBSE announced major rule change, Schools will be penalized for enrolling more than 40 students per section

New Delhi : Hundreds of schools affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) are in a soup for registering more than 40 students per section. A major rule change has been recently issued by the board.

According to sources, the violation was detected through the board’s Online Affiliated School Information System (OASIS).

Under new norms by CBSE, schools cannot register over 40 students per section and if they do, they will be penalised.

CBSE major rule change: Schools to be penalised

With the data out on defaulters, the board is reportedly intending to penalise close to 1,700 private schools across the country by sending them a show-cause notice for withdrawal of affiliation and a fine of Rs 500 or more per extra student.

These schools make up around 7-8 per cent of all schools under CBSE, said sources.

CBSE rules: Crackdown against ‘renting of seats’ by schools

The move is also seen as a crackdown against “renting of seats” by private schools. This is done for students who are enrolled in schools which they don’t regularly go to but actually take private coaching and the schools mark their attendance in absentia.

OASIS was introduced in 2016 with an aim to bring the entire school information on a digital platform.

CBSE released a list of skill education or vocational subjects

Also, CBSE has released the list of skill education or vocational subjects for both Class 10 and Class 12 students for the examination which is scheduled to be held in February, March, and April next year.

The board has also decided to conduct the examination of a few other academic subjects which are being opted for by a small number of students.
