THE HIGH Court has served notices on the State Government, the Church of North India (CNI), the Jabalpur Municipal Corporation, the Council for Indian School Certificate Examination and others on a PIL seeking direction to restrain ‘bogus’ private schools, particularly the CNI, from doing admission in its ‘unrecognised bogus school’ the ‘Christ Church Senior School for Boys and Girls’ in the coming academic session 2006-07.

A division bench comprising Chief Justice A K Patnaik and Justice Dipak Misra heard the petitioner’s counsel Aditya Sanghi before issuance of notices to the respondents. Reverend Anurag Deepak Yogi filed the public interest litigation said some private schools in MP, particularly the ‘Christ Church Senior School for Boys and Girls’ in Jabalpur, were unrecognised and not affiliated to any board of education.

In case of this school, even the CNI did not take permission from the government to run the school and in session 2005-06 some 700 students were enrolled, the PIL said.
