Mumbai: The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has issued notice to Dadar’s famous Sharadashram School, whose former students include cricket icon Sachin Tendulkar, stating that the school will be declared illegal if it begins ICSE admissions.

Last month, the school announced that it would change from the existing state board curriculum to one under the Indian Certificate Secondary Education (ICSE) for Classes one to four. Though the state education department gave a no-objection certificate (NOC) to the school for the shift, it still does not have the BMC’s permission which is mandatory. The education committee has objected as parents are unhappy about this shift.

Meanwhile, the school is stuck with its decision and is preparing to give an explanation to the BMC. Subhash Jhadav, administrative officer of the school, said, “We got the notice but the point remains that we have got a NOC from the state education department so we are nowhere breaking the rules. We will soon give a written explanation to the BMC.”

As per the school decision, for classes 1 to 4, the curriculum will be shifted to ICSE whereas for classes 5 to 10, the same state board curriculum will be followed. All classes will be gradually shifted to the ICSE curriculum beginning next year.

Magesh Satamkar, chairperson of the civic education committee, told The Asian Age that more than 300 parents had visited him about the matter.
