DEVELOPMENT

(SMT. D PURANDESWARI)

(a) & (b): No case of discrimination against Indian students for admission in private schools affiliated to Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) in Bangalore or any other city in the country has come to the notice of CBSE. Affiliation Bye-Laws of the CBSE provide that “admission in the schools affiliated to CBSE shall be made without any distinction of religion, race, caste, creed, place of birth or any of them”.

All the schools affiliated to CBSE are expected to follow the provisions of its Affiliation and Examination Bye-Laws. In the event of violation CBSE has the power to initiate action against schools which may lead to disaffiliation for affiliation depending on the gravity of violations.
