Unaided schools: recognition must

BANGALORE: According to a circular by the commissioner of public instruction , all unaided schools having any classes from Standard I to VIII have to get government recognition . All schools should apply to the Block Education Officer (BEO) concerned. A copy of the form is available on www.schooleducation .kar.nic.in.
There's also an online registration facility. Feedback can be sent through the site and after taking it into account, the portal will be available from May 25.

The circular also states that if a school fails to apply for recognition, action will be taken under Section 18(5) of the Act which states that any person who runs a school without obtaining certificate of recognition is liable to a fine up to Rs 1 lakh and in case of continuing contraventions, a fine of Rs 10,000 for each subsequent day. The application can be filed offline too.
The department has also informed school managements that parents seeking admission under Section 12(1)( c) of the Act can apply to schools through admission forms available in Block Education Officer's office, Deputy Director of Public Instruction and also in all schools. The form, which is free of cost, is also available on www.schooleducation .kar.nic.in. BEO's notification is available in the respective zilla panchayat website. In case of any problem, parents can approach the jurisdictional BEO, the grievance redressal authority under RTE.
