CBSE cancels affiliation of 43 schools in Jharkhand and Bihar

NEW DELHI: In a sweeping move, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has cancelled the affiliation of 43 private schools in Bihar and Jharkhand, for non-compliance with prescribed standards. This stern measure follows a thorough investigation that uncovered these schools’ failure to meet mandated criteria.

The CBSE has issued orders for the immediate closure of these 36 private schools, sending a stern warning to parents against enrolling their children in institutions stripped of recognition. Despite being granted recognition by the CBSE, these schools were found deficient in meeting specified standards. Notably, they were accused of extracting substantial fees from parents while failing to provide essential facilities to students.

These educational institutions have been under scrutiny for some time, facing allegations even during board examinations. Following a comprehensive investigation, the CBSE has taken this robust action to maintain the integrity of the education system.

More than 7,000 students from these schools are slated to take the exam in 2024. Keeping in mind the future of these students, the board has granted permission for these schools to conduct their final board exams. The list of schools with revoked recognition has been made public on the official CBSE website.
