The state education department has insisted up on the private schools, which have set up their branches in the city, to obtain a no-objection certificate (NOC) from the department immediately or face the music.
The administration had earlier sent notices to some schools which have more than one centre. Of late, the department issued fresh reminders to eight schools.
Managements should obtain NOC before setting up a school or a branch of an already existing school.
Most schools in the city have NOC to run only one school.
The department has also asked the school managements to obtain the department’s permission before relocating the school.
According to the officials, some schools are operating from a different location other than what was given to the department.
“If a school is not functioning at the address mentioned in the no-objection certificate, it would be considered invalid. We have identified some such schools and would soon take action against them,” said Manoj Kaushik, the district education officer.
A well-known school in sector 45, DLF II and sector 4 are among the schools which had received notices.
Earlier, the education department had issued notices to 65 schools for not sending the information sought by the department.
“Schools managements should fill in the Form IV issued to the schools. But many schools are yet to give updated information,” said an official, adding that defaulters will be pulled up.
