New Delhi: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has issued showcause notice to over 2,000 affiliated schools across the country for not complying with its order for making certain details about the schools public.

As per the CBSE norms, all schools are mandated to make details public right from the number of water taps, wi-fi facilities with speed details to a complete breakup of monthly fees of each class, admission results, reserve funds and balance sheets.

The schools were asked to fill the information online through the link given on the board’s website and also upload on their respective websites by October last year. But the deadline was later extended by a month as many schools expressed their inability to furnish the data at such short notice. 

“Over 2,000 schools have failed to comply with the mandatory disclosure order. The identified schools have been sent show cause notices. They will be given one last chance failing which they will have to pay a fine of Rs 50,000 each,” a senior board official said. The board has also warned schools to follow all prescribed norms regarding the fee structure. “The fees should be commensurate with the facilities provided by the school and any violations will be dealt with seriously,” the official added.
