The Department of Public Instruction (DPI) has asked the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) to withdraw the affiliation of six schools run by the National Public School group in Bengaluru and Mysuru.
The request was made after it was found that the group produced “fake”minority status documents to avoid giving up 25% seats under the Right To Education (RTE) Act. The DPI sent the request last week.
Six schools in trouble
The six schools that will be in trouble in case the CBSE decides to honour the Department of Public Instruction’s request are National Public Schools in Rajajinagar, Indiranagar, Koramangala, HSR Layout, Mysuru and the NationalAcademy for Learning, Basaveshwara Nagar, Bengaluru.
A month ago, the Department of Public Instruction had directed filing of criminal complaints against the six schools when the National Commission for Minority Educational Institutions pointed out that the group had produced fake documents.
