Central Board of Secondary Education Withdraws Affiliation from Multiple Manipur Schools Know Why...
CBSE takes decisive action, withdrawing affiliations from 25 schools in Manipur due to non-compliance with state regulations.
Imphal, December 20, 2023 - In a recent development, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), New Delhi, has taken the unprecedented step of withdrawing affiliations from several schools in Manipur. The decision, effective immediately, comes in response to the non-compliance of necessary procedures and the absence of No Objection Certificates (NOC) authorized by the State Government.

The move is outlined in a press release by the Government of Manipur's Department of Education(S), notifying the public of the withdrawal of affiliations granted to 25 schools. The withdrawal is based on the grounds that the NOCs submitted by these schools were not issued by the authorized functionaries of the State Government. This action aligns with the State Government's explicit request for the cancellation of affiliation, as stated in their letter No. AS-101/5/2023-EDN(S)-EDN(S) dated December 16, 2023.

The list of affected schools includes notable names such as St. Peter's School, Excel Foundation Academy, and Good Samaritan Public School, among others. These schools, previously affiliated with CBSE, now face the immediate consequences of losing their affiliations.

This development raises questions about the adherence to regulatory protocols by educational institutions in Manipur. The Government of Manipur, through the Department of Education(S), has emphasized that stringent actions will be initiated against those responsible for flouting rules and regulations set by the State Government and the CBSE. Additionally, the press release warns that any school found not following due process in the future will face necessary actions, including the withdrawal of affiliation by the competent authority.

The joint secretary (Education-S), Anjali Chongtham, asserts that this decisive action is a measure to uphold the integrity and adherence to regulations within the education system. As the affected schools grapple with the immediate repercussions, the broader implications of this move underscore the importance of compliance with educational standards and government regulations in the state.

The press release concludes by copying the notification to key authorities, including the Secretary to Chief Minister, PPS to Minister of Education, Chief Secretary, Director of Education-S, and the Director of DIPR, Manipur, for dissemination in both print and electronic media. This move aligns with the government's commitment to transparency and ensuring that the public is informed about these significant developments within the education sector.
