Private schools running sans recognition will have to mandatorily get an accreditation certificate from the state government before December 31, said officials of the state education department.

In this regard, the education department issued an official notification on Tuesday directing all private schools offering primary education to apply for accreditation certificates through the online portal e-Sambandhan.

On July 22, the department launched the e-Sambandhan portal for facilitating online applications for acquiring no objection certificate (NOC) from the department, easing the affiliation process for private primary school operators.

Ranjit Kumar Singh, outgoing director of (primary) education, said, “No school will be allowed to operate in the state without accreditation certificate after December 31. Private schools must apply for recognition before September 30. Those private schools that are already recognised are also required to upload their relevant documents on the portal before September 30. After an inspection on various parameters, QR code attached accreditation certificate will be issued to them.”

“The primary schools that have applied for acquiring accreditation certificate through offline mode need to fill fresh online application. All applications for accreditation will be disposed of through online portal”, he added.

Officials of the department said all district education offices have been asked to submit a report regarding the accreditation of private schools of their respective districts by January 2022.

As per the department, the e-Sambandhan portal would bring uniformity and transparency in issuing recognition certificates and help in the crackdown against mushrooming private schools operating without matching criteria set for them.
