CBSE recently issued a notification informing parents to be careful about the misleading ads by some schools. “It has come to the notice of the Board that some of the non-affiliated schools whose application is either under process, or rejected by the Board, or they have not applied for affiliation at all, are misleading parents by displaying various display boards at schools, prominent locations and on website showing messages such as, ‘to be affiliated to CBSE’, ‘CBSE pattern’, ‘likely to be affiliated with CBSE’, ‘running under the aegis of CBSE,’ etc. It may be noted that as per clause 14.2.2 of its Affiliation Bye-Laws, 2018, the Board does not allow non-affiliated school to present the candidates to the board’s examination,” CBSE writes in its press release.
“Therefore, parents who wish to admit their wards in CBSE affiliated schools are hereby alerted and requested to check the affiliation status (including up to what class the affiliation is given by the board) of a school before admitting their ward to the school. The parents may go through CBSE Affiliation website at www.cbseaff.nic.in where link for region wise/ state wise list of affiliated schools has been given and same also contains list of disaffiliated schools,” said CBSE.
