The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has withdrawn the provisional affiliation for secondary and senior school certificate examination of Don Bosco Global School at Jhande village for the next academic session.

The school will not be allowed to admit students of Classes 9-Class 12 for the academic session starting on April 1 next year.

The withdrawal of affiliation for secondary and senior secondary classes has upset many and worried parents are approaching other schools for admission of their wards.

A parent pleading anonymity said, “I am very upset as my son is studying in Don Bosco School. I recently got to know about the withdrawal of affiliation by the board which is quite disturbing to us. I am visiting other schools and I will admit my son in any other school as soon as possible.”

Another parent who wished not to be named, said, “At this time we are running from school to school to get our daughter admitted in other school but schools are not willing as it’s the middle of session. I am not at all interested that she should continue her studies in this school.”

In a letter issued to the school by the board clearly says that on the basis of a complaint a board team had inspected the school.

The committee during the inspection found that the school before its affiliation with the board had admitted 11 students in Class 9 and got their Class 10 examination cleared through Kamla Montessori School, Hissar Road, Sirsa, in 2012.

The committee also found that the school allegedly produced fake land documents for seeking affiliation from the board. The school has appointed most of the staff on a fixed salary of `8,000 per month and the school withholds original certificate of the staff in an illegal manner.

The committee submitted its report to the board and after which the latter decided to withdraw the provisional affiliation granted to the school for secondary and senior school certificate examination with immediate effect.However, to save the career of the students of classes 9-12, the board has permitted the former to appear in its examination to be held in 2015-2016 after ascertaining their eligibility as per the examination bylaws by the regional officer, CBSE, Panchkula.The school was granted provisional affiliation on February 28, 2011, for secondary school examination and upgradation of Class 12 on December 20, 2012.

RJ Khanderao, CBSE regional head, Panchkula, said, “The school will not be allowed to admit students in classes 9-12 from the next session but the students who are already studying in these classes will be allowed to appear in the board examination.” School principal Vinay Sharma refused to comment on the issue. “We are hopeful that the board will provide us the affiliation back,” a school official said.
