Open / Start a School in India and CBSE Affiliation

Starting a CBSE SCHOOL in India

school can be started from Kindergarten to Class XII or to any of the classes in between. School in India has to function as a “NOT FOR PROFIT”, only a not for profit Society / Trust or a Section 8 company. I have written a separate post on the formation of the Trust & Society. Click Here to read about it

What are the returns from a School and how much does it cost to build and run a school?

The minimum land requirement by CBSE is 1.5 Acres but there is a host of factors which can play a part in this requirement such as Type of City, Population, Location of the land, Type of Property etc.

For more information you can read this post here. Click Here 

Cost of building a School

A school normally requires construction in phases (Here I am taking about a Budget CBSE School meant for a 1000 students)

  • Phase 1: 20,000  sq ft to 25,000  sq ft construction – Year 1
  • Phase 2: 12,000  sq ft- 15,000 sq ft – year 3
  • Phase 3: 6,000  sq ft – 10,000 sq ft – Year 4

You multiply these numbers with Rs 16,00 per sq feet and this will give you a ballpark costing of construction plus furniture and fund requirements. Over and above this you can spend on Marketing, Landscaping, Sports Facilities etc. That is completely dependent on the promoter’s vision.

Affiliation

A School has to have affiliation from the State Board. It doesn’t matter if it is eventually affiliated to CBSE / ICSE or IB Board. Education is a state subject, hence the can have any affiliation but State BoardAffiliation / Permission is mandatory.

Franchise

Starting any Brand Franchise: There are lot of franchise (Brands) to choose from like Brighton International School, DPS, Bhartiya Vidya Bhavan, Everonn, Manipal, Shamrock, Mayo College, Kangaroo Kids etc.

All these have a proper corporate office where there are teams involved with the expansion of the chain. Their website is the way one can get in touch with them. Typically they charge a Security Deposit (to be fixed for a stipulated period) a Licence Fee (chargeable every year) and a Revenue share per student. None of this is fixed and may depend from organization to organization. They will help you in setting elementary process and curriculum right.

Starting the School (Essential Steps)

Form a Trust/Society/ Section 8 Company

As per the government’s norms, the administrative power of the school should be vested in a Not-for-profit society or trust. Every state has a an office of Registrar where a society can be registered.This is the address of the few of the offices across different states; for more you can read here 
Similarly one can start a school by forming a Section 8 company. For more on this, you can read my post here 
Register the Plot of Land

The Land on which the school will be built has to be either leased out or should be in the name of the society or the trust. The documents should be certified by the local land registration office.For a CBSE school inside the city limits the minimum area should be One Acre and outside the city limits should be 1.5 Acres. 

Kindly remember the Land should all be at One Place and in One Piece.

I get maximum amount of queries regarding the size of the land especially from Metros. CBSE has recently amended the bye laws regarding the requirement of land. Kindly go through the circular. It specifically states the land required for starting a school in Metros should be greater than 1600 Sq Meter (about 0.4 acres) for Pre Primary to Class X, and about an acre for Classes upto Class XII. For rest of India the rule has stayed the same as described above. I have written a separate post on this topic, here is the link

Get an approval from the local Education Office Once the building and the staff is ready, open admissions. Simultaneously go to the local education office in most cases DEO (District Education Office) and register by paying the fee. Post inspection of the school premises and after taking relevant information they will provide the society/trust with required certification. The school will first take-off after the permission from the state board. This is essential, there has been a ruling by the court on this aspect.

GETTING AN AFFILIATION FROM STATE BOARD IS MANDATORY FOR GETTING CONSIDERED FOR CBSE AFFILIATION 

HOW TO GET CBSE AFFILIATION

In India the three most common boards/curriculum are CBSE, ICSE and the various respective State boards. Now a days a lot of new schools are adopting for the IB board. All the boards except state boards do not allow any school to use their curriculum or brand name at the time of school’s inception. A school can apply to CBSE or ICSE board only after a year of school’s inception. In the case of IB its 3 years. There are various set of guidelines which are available online. To begin with the maximum you can start is till Class VIII. The set of guidelines can also help you in detailing out the size of classrooms and of the school building.

The most difficult part in getting an affiliation is NOC, the CBSE waived this rule in the interim but now it is back. The new circular is out (Dec 2016). I have written a separate post on it, click on the link here

This entire process of affiliation is a very transparent process and in case one is ready to do the paperwork, you really don’t require any touts or middle man. CBSE provides school with a list of bye laws to be kept in mind while applying for CBSE Affiliation. The entire manual can be downloaded from the CBSE’s official website. Here is the website – CBSE e-Affiliation Website and the link to download the  Bye-Laws – Affiliation Bye Laws

Following are the steps to get a school affiliated from CBSE.

School are required to remit prescribed fee through a system generated e-challan at any branches of HDFCBank or through NEFT /RTGSthrough branches of any nationalized /scheduled Banks. The Affiliation Fee keeps on changing from year to year.  Here is where you can access the details on the current fee – Affiliation Fee. After taking printout of confirmation page of online application form, the same duly signed by the Principal and Manager of the school along with enclosures and CBSE copy of fee payment challan shall be sent to the Board.

Here is the list of documents you have to upload

f. You also have to furnish some basic information with regards to your school to CBSE. This happens in the form of an ONLINE FORM. Here is sample of the of the FORM.

STEP 3 – Wait for the Letter from the CBSE

CBSE will send a letter mentioning the officials who have been deputed to come and inspect the school. Without wasting any time, get in touch with them and arrange for them to come.

FAQsExplanations
Do I have to procure affiliation and then start the school?NO You can only apply for affiliation once you have started the institute. The affiliation asks for a lot of information regarding the students' strength teachers etc which can only be filled once you start the school.
My society comprises of members of my family, what do I do to make it of "Non Proprietary" nature? Off all the members in a society majority i.e more than 50% cannot be related by blood. Also while declaring the members of the society in the affidavit the Chairman will have to declare the relationship among the members who all are related by blood line.
I am running a school in a rented building. Can I apply for affiliation? The law clearly states that the school should have Proof regarding possession of 2 acres of land (pg 60 of bye laws). Hence the school can run in a rented building but the land on which the building is built should be owned or leased to the society. Society can lease the land to a company which can then construct the building and can charge the society a rent on its investments.
Do I have to take State Board Affiliation to start a School, Can I directly apply to CBSEYes you have to procure State Board Affiliation post that only you can go for CBSE Affiliation.
Is this the entire list of documents? I believe this is the list in case they need more information you can always ask for more time.
Salary drawn by Teachers at my institute is not at par with State Norms or Central Government NormsDon't worry about it. Salary is a subjective topic and can vary from city to city within the same state. It all depends upon the cost of living in that particular area. Don't worry about low salaries. You just have to be fair in showing that what you have specified in the offer letter is what is going in the bank account and the same is getting signed by the employee.
Land original documents are with the Bank as collateral Get a photocopy attested by the bank that this is a true copy of the documents pledged with them. Get the bank manager sign on the photocopy.
Approximately what is the time between submission and inspection and how much time is spent by the inspection Team on the campusIt takes about 3-4 months from submission to inspection and the team spends about 5 to 6 hours (Arrange for them to have meals either in the school or a place nearby).
What is the investment required to open a schoolThis query invites a subjective response but a thumb rule for starters / planners. 2 Acres of land at the market price plus cost of construction at about 1200 Rs a square feet.
Non-Proprietary Affidavit. What do I do when some members are related to each other?This is a very general trend across societies though advisable is very few members should be related to each other (blood relatives). Even if people are related to each other the Chairman/Head of the trust society should declare the same while submitting the Non-Proprietary affidavit that 'x' person is related to 'y' person through by 'z' relationship.
Do I know somebody who can take BRIBE in CBSE or outside and get you an affiliationThe Answer is "HELL NO".
I need your help. I am looking for a consultant who could help me start a school or to get a CBSE AffiliationYes I am available for paid consultation. You can write to me on abhiney@brightoninternational.in

      Dear Ms Awasthi,
      206 Sq Yards = 1854 Sq Feet which is not big enough for a school, you require a minimum of 7260 square yards to start a CBSE Affiliated School.

      My school is affiliated from Punjab School Board. May I fill application for CBSE. – yes you can. You have to compulsorily take NO OBJECTION CERTIFICATE from state government.

      2.If I have 1 school affiliation from CBSE or Punjab board. May I open second branch in another locality in same city.- Yes you can start but you can’t claim that School will automatically be affiliated to the board. Schools have to be treated as individual assets and so is their affiliation. One has to remember the affiliation is given on infrastructure and integrity of processes rather than to a brand name.

      1. Our trust is formed in 2016. Is is possible to get affiliation? – Yes why not.
      2. While filling up form we are unable to find our district in the list. What to do? – Take a nearby District if it is there, make sure you get the city right.
      3. Building is ready, students admission are on, state board affiliation in under process, can we go in for CBSE? WHAT ABOUT NOC? Our first day of school is declared as 08-06-2017.

      4. What is the proportion of blood line relation in trust for non propriotary character? – They should not be in Majority also if there are any, the chairman of the society should declare the same in the affidavit.

      Dear Aayush,
      Location of land is not a big issue, just make sure No HIGH TENSION electrical cable should run overhead of the building. Also now a days schools are getting rejected because of boundary walls, make sure you have adequate infrastructure on that part.

      Dear Rahul,
      I have written extensively about this in my blog posts, kindly read. But here is something that should help you;

      This is the chronology which one needs to adopt

      Start constructing the building of the school
      |
      |
      Get State Board Affiliation
      |
      |
      Apply for CBSE Affiliation before End of June

      In your case I suggest start school till Class VII to give yourself a cushion of a year. For example if you are starting a school in 2017-18, apply for CBSE affiliation directly upto Secondary School (Class X) by June 2018, you will have inspection by January/ February 2019 and will have affiliation by March – 2019.

        Sir,

        If the state government stops/ dismisses any affiliation to schools up till 5 years from now as that in Uttar Pradesh about which the announcement is made recently, Where should one get the affiliation from and how? Does CBSE gives affiliation till class 8th as well? In such a case, where state government or Basic Shiksha Adhikari doesn’t give any affiliation what are the other provisions?

        Thanks

          Dear Binish,
          There is no other way, sadly. You have to ask the State Board for No Objection Certificate. As far as the State Board Affiliation go, they should give that to you if your infrastructure is meeting their standards.

    Dear Abhiney,
    This is gilbert from pudhucherry. We are running primary school and having 275 students.My question is as per cbse bye-laws,
    ————————————————-
    Category A + School – Permanently affiliated school
    Category A School – Provisionally affiliated school with land of atleast 2 acres
    or of such measurement as has been permitted under
    Rule 3(ii) (b),(c), (d) & (e) below.
    Category B School – Provisionally affiliated school with following criterion:
    a) recognized by the Education Department or whose application has been
    forwarded by it.
    b) does not possess land as per Category ‘A’ but has not less than 1.5 acre of
    land also satisfies the following:
    • 250 sq. mtr. of area + 1 sq.mtr. for every student on the rolls (for a middle
    school).
    • 500 sq.mtr. of area +1 sq.mtr. for every student on the rolls (for a
    Secondary school).
    • 750 sq.mtr. of area +1 sq.mtr. for every student on the rolls (for a Senior
    Secondary school).
    ————————————————-
    but in another point

    The schools which were granted affiliation upto Secondary level on or before the
    year 1996 under the (relaxed condition of land requirement under category “B” or
    “C” may be considered for Upgradation to +2 stage provided. that they should have
    atleast one acre of land.
    Provided further that such school will have only two sections at +2 level preferably
    one for non-vocational stream and one for vocational stream with the provision that
    the number of candidates shall not exceed 40 in each section.

    So please reply me whether 1.5 acres of land is enough for all 4 streams in +2.

    Hello Sir,
    First of all my special thanks to you; for providing very valuable information. I have below queries
    I am planning to open a school in Haryana (area comes under Delhi NCR ) which will be for pre- primary (Below grade-1) To primary sections (From Grade 1 to 5).
    As I have read your comments that affiliation is mandatory if It has classes from 1st to (onwards) and that pre-requisite is very costly especially for the land requirement.
    As in my case Land requirement is one acre (Relaxation for Delhi NCR) for CBSE and 0.5 Acres for BSEH (State government) correct me if I am wrong? I already mentioned that I will open for up to 5th only.
    I also want to confirm that if I got the approval from BSEH for primary section (state government) can I teach the CBSE syllabus to the students?
    Is it possible that I have BSEH affiliation but teaching medium is English?
    For BSEH affiliation what is the lease duration of the land as in case of CBSE it is 30 years.
    I have seen lot of school in my area which are not affiliated to any board and continuously giving the education to pre to VII standard? What are the drawbacks if my school is not affiliated to any board and having the classes from pre to primary (Up to 5th)
    One more thing I need to know when affiliation process should start actually.
    Before enrollment of the students means building is ready now publicity for enrollment?
    Or it can be in between of enrollment
    Or it can be after starting the classes.
    Or it can be after one session is over.
    Regards,

      1) Can I teach the CBSE syllabus to the students? – YES, you can. No issues with that.

      2) Is it possible that I have BSEH affiliation but teaching medium is English? – YES, very much.

      3) For BSEH affiliation what is the lease duration of the land as in case of CBSE it is 30 years. – Read the BYE Laws, I am not aware of it. Should be online.

      4) I have seen lot of school in my area which are not affiliated to any board and continuously giving the education to pre to VII standard? What are the drawbacks if my school is not affiliated to any board and having the classes from pre to primary (Up to 5th) – Not possible, to start a school you have to have state Government Permission / Affiliation.

      5) when affiliation process should start actually. – If you mean to ask CBSE Affiliation – It is after the school is up and running. For State Board – Before the schools starts or have just started.

    What should be the standard area for a classroom, Lab, Library and Office?

    As per my query that for username and password for entering Class IX student registration your answer is We have to go to Regional Office and meet the staff nothing will come to mail or School Address.

    You don,t think that if all process is online then why for receiving school Credentials we have to go to RO which is in another state.

    Suppose we receive the username and password & enter our class IX student details and in the next three months we are unable to fulfill the requirement as mention in the grant letter Then what will be the possibility they will give us more time or disaffiliate our school If they Disaffiliate our school what will be class IX students registration.

    Dear Sir,
    With the help of your BLOG we have received a grant letter from CBSE through online and mentioned the school affiliation code but I have some queries
    In the grant letter there are mentioned some special conditions which have to be compiled in three months otherwise school is liable for action like section teacher ratio should be 1.5, deduction of EPF ,Staff Salary through ECS and some other
    My question is now we go to regional office and submit the documentary proof then Affiliation grant paper which is available in internet is signed by the Deputy SEC (AFF) because the grant paper which is available in internet not signed by the Deputy SEC.
    My second question IS our school is now affiliated upto class X what is procedure now for getting the user name for uploading the class IX student registration we have to go and meet the Regional office or speed post our queries to the RO because RO CBSE office is another state which is very far.

    Last question when in the online application status when we received the grant letter it means that we have nothing to worry now for the affiliation our affiliation process is complete

      Query 1) You don’t have to, all of this will happen automatically, plus the letter you would have received, you would have acquired without CBSE sending it to you, hence the signatures really doesn’t matter.

      Query 2) Contact the Regional Office for this ASAP

      Query 3) YES, but do write back giving explanations and measures adopted to overcome the deficiency pointed out by the Inspection Committee.

    i am Nidhi and i am new to this affiliation procedures, i am working currently as a principal, in an 16 year old school, it has been affiliated to the board for the last 12 years, this is my second year on my new role, i have recently applied for extension of provisional affiliation for the year 2017 onwards.The affiliation period ends by 2017, the status i received online was “under Scrutiny”.
    i am also currently constructing a new building for CL-XI & XII in the same campus

    my question is

    # i have applied for extension on provisional affiliation for X with current status “under Scrutiny”

    # WHEN AND HOW CAN I APPLY FOR UPGRADATION, WHAT ELSE I WILL NEED (procedure)
    i.e after a year of securing extension of provisional affiliation, or apply for CL-XI & XII when the online window opens.
    # what are documents needed for the procedure
    # i will have to remind you the building is still under construction and is projected to complete them by this session’s end.

        ##. The reason we did not apply for Upgradation was due to the ongoing construction for the CL-XI & XII, though we could have applied on june but our Affiliation for X was set to expire on 2017, so thought to secure what we have already and go for the Upgradation, in full force after completing the construction with its relevant documents. Thanks again, wish you an Amazing day ahead with blessings for your family.

      2. What are the factors we should consider in naming our school? – Following factors could be considered

      Dear Atul, You can go for ICSE affiliation, that could be a possibility for you. CBSE is not going to happen on this size of land.

    Dear Abhinay,
    Thank you so much for these insight informations about opening a school. Just wanted to check with you- to form trust/society- how many minimum members are required provided if they are not close blood relatives. Can we form a society with 2 members??

    Many Thanks

          So for training, there are pics already given by CBSE for schools to go through. A school can pick and choose and make their teachers go through accordingly.
          I believe here are the some of the topics;

          Below are the list of topics that we shall cover:
          • Health Wellness and Sanitation
          • Tools and Techniques for Formative Assessment
          • Tools and Techniques for Summative Assessment
          • Value Education in CCE
          • Life Skills in CCE
          • Grading System in co- scholastics CCE
          • Teaching Science to students the CCE Way
          • Teaching English to students the CCE Way
          • Teaching Maths to students the CCE Way
          • Teaching Social Science to students the CCE Way
          • Project Method of Teaching and Learning
          • Recording and documenting case studies to fill report cards.
          • Teacher as Classroom Leader
          CBSE Philosophy and CCE Overview
          Assessment of Differently abled Children

          As per CBSE norms Participants/Participant schools have to pay the fees as detailed For One day Workshop @ INR 409/- (Rupees Four Hundred and Nine only per participant+12.3% taxes). For Two day Workshop @ INR 743/- (Rupees Four Hundred and Nine only per participant+12.3% taxes).

      1 Acres = 43560 Square Feet. For CBSE you require a minimum of 1.5 Acres of land and for ICSE you would require 1 Acre. You will have to acquire some more land for either of these boards.

      1.) is it right location ? – I don’t know as we advent done any research for Bareilly
      2.) land area is sufficient for purpose? – Should be sufficient as I believe 1 Bigha = 0.64 Acres
      3.) its agricultural land as i mentioned above. wht should i do ? – Get the land use converted
      4.) how to begin ? (wht are the mandatory steps) – Read my blog it is all there
      5.) wht are the expenses excluding infrastructure? – Depends on vision and your ideas.

      Dear Singh Sahab,
      You cannot start a school in 2529 Sq Feet which can be affiliated to ICSE or CBSE board. For CBSE and ICSE you would need at least 45,000 Square feet and 25,000 square feet respectively. In 2529 square feet, think about starting a play school if there is any opportunity where the plot is located.

      You don’t have to change the trust but you should ask a few of the members from the board to resign and new members could be inducted. Make sure members of family cannot have the majority share and additional to this the Chairman of the trust has to declare if any of the members is related to him / her.

    Hi Sir,

    Greeting!!!

    I am running a secondary school in Chittorgarh (Rajasthan) and which is affiliated to state board, I have got registered the society (under section 28 of ACT 1956).
    I have another piece of own land (2.5 Acre) and want to open new CBSE school.
    Now my question is :
    (1). Will the same registered society is ok ? or I need to register again (under section 25 of the companies Act of 1956) ?
    (2). whom to contact for land certificate, will it be tehsildar,patwari or someone else ?
    (3). What to get from state government either recognition or NOC, and how ?
    (4). Its better to open new school or convert existing school into CBSE ?
    Thanks

      Dear Bharat,
      (1). Will the same registered society is ok ? or I need to register again (under section 25 of the companies Act of 1956) ? – Same registered Society is alright, you don’t have to open a separate school.
      (2). whom to contact for land certificate, will it be tehsildar,patwari or someone else ? – Collector / DM, CBSE will require the certificate ‘as is’ don’t try to change the template in any way else.
      (3). What to get from state government either recognition or NOC, and how ? – Contact the DEO office and apply for State Board affiliation. The is mandatory
      (4). Its better to open new school or convert existing school into CBSE ? – Both are equally good. All depends upon the underlying potential.

    Hi Abhiney ,
    Today I got sample of Non Proprietary Affidavit Format through http://www.scribd.com, which was uploaded by you,thanks for it.
    I have doubt that in our trust we have six members,
    1.CHAIRMAN (MY SELF)
    2. FOUNDER (MY MOTHER)
    3. FINANCIAL TRUSTEE (MY WIFE)
    4. TRUSTEES (MY FATER n LAW )or(my wife’s father)
    5. TRUSTEES ( NOT HAVING ANY FAMILY OR BLOOD RELATIONSHIP WITH ME)
    6. TRUSTEES ( NOT HAVING ANY FAMILY OR BLOOD RELATIONSHIP WITH ME).

    While getting affidavit signed by District Magistrate I will be mentioning all this details By saying this trust is running not for profit.
    But while applying this affidavit format for CBSE affiliation process, Do this will affect us in any way for getting CBSE affiliation.
    If suppose it will affect, what I have to do.. Because I am going to apply at the month of April(2016) end.
    KINDLY ADVICE

      The photocopy has to go to Delhi, regarding the fixed deposit it depends on the number of students. It is all mentioned in the Bye Laws. Reiterating here for your convenience.
      14. Reserve Fund
      1) The school shall maintain reserve fund to the extent indicated below:

      Enrolment of students from 1st and onwards
      Amount of Reserve Fund
      Upto 500 – Rs. 60,000/-
      From501 to 750 – Rs. 80,000/-
      From751 to 1000 – Rs. 100,000/-
      Above1000 – Rs. 100/- per student’ rounded to the nearest thousand.

      2) Reserve Fund shall be maintained in the joint names of the Manager of the school concerned and the Secretary of the Board in a scheduled Bank. In case of institution receiving grant in aid or in case the School Education Act of the State/UT so prescribes, the reserve fund shall be maintained in the joint names of the Manager of the school and the Director or Education of the State/Union Territory concerned. The interest accruing out of the deposit of reserve fund made by the institution at the time of affiliation/ extension of affiliation be not withdrawn by the management under any circumstances what so ever.

      Dear Prithvi,
      The way you are explaining it is sounding very complicated. Let me ease it for you. You have to show the audited balance sheet of the Society / Trust till date. When I say till date it means till last year. You cannot change the balance sheet since the books are prepared after the end of financial year. You produce what you have done. Speak to your CA for more clarification.

    I have one query regarding reserve fund for CBSE.
    Bye-Laws says to make a FDR in the joint names of the Manager of the school and Secretary of CBSE. Unfortunately we don’t have any post called ‘Manager’ in our SMC.
    Any workaround for this?
    1. Can it be done in the name of Secretary of school (Which is actually Principal of the school) or Chairman of the school?
    2. Also the names should not be mentioned in the FDR, right? Only the post would suffice?

      Hemant,
      1. CBSE affiliation only starts from Class I and onwards, so Nursery, Play School, Pre Primary do not feature in their parameters.
      2. You can take the land on lease for a minimum duration of 30 years, for more read the affiliation bye laws available on CBSE’s website
      3. If you change the location, the affiliation process has to be initiated again, since the name doesn’t get the affiliation but the infrastructure get approved.

      Dear Sharmaji,
      Answer to your queries;
      1. Do I need to get registred the land in my name or i can go with lease? – You can do either, Lease is a better idea.

      2. Land is approx 1 KM away from the main road but there is sub road, will location be fine for school? – You have to decide that, depending on the need of the place and the clientele you wish to bring in.

      3. I am not able to deside, should i go with franchises or start own school. Please suggest. – This is a choice based on your skill set, demand in your city and your financial position.

      1. I plan to open an English medium school 3km from a municipal town and 20 km from a municipal corporation (20L population). It’s 2 km off the highway in a village.Does it sounds good? – Should be fine, but it will be difficult for me to comments as I hardly know the place you are planning to start. School’s success depends on a lot of factor, obviously the location plays a very important role.

      2. I have sufficient land (market rate @1Cr/acre) but need money for construction. What should be estimate for school upto 8th? Also what are better options for getting finance? – Get in touch with a CA — Create a Detailed Project Report — Get in touch with a Bank.

    My present status is
    I have a school running till class 8. Number of teachers and students is the same as in mentioned in my last post. The school is affiliated by state board (Permission has been given by DEO. Now I want to start CBSE school but the land I have is located 30 kilometers from my present school.
    Now I want to start CBSE school in the location where I have land. I will shift my present school and merge it into that CBSE school. Can I do that?

      Mr V Rout,
      You can surely shift your school, no issues with that. But you will have to notify the DEO and get an affiliation of State Board on that premises as well. What you need to understand is the Affiliation is not given to a name (of the school) but to a ready & usable infrastructure (building).

    Dear Abhinay
    Your FAQs is one of the most helping I have ever found. Thanks for being so much straight and helping.
    However I could not find answer of my one question. I have a school running in Durg “City” it has classes from Nursery to eight and the enrollment is about 125 while the number of teahers is 17 of which 10 are trained graduate. There is one Principal also. The salary of teachers ranges from Rs 1500 pm to Rs 2200 per month. While salary of the head is Rs 2500 pm. Every month the management puts in about Rs 5000 – 10000 for the expenses related to school and thus the school is running in loss. I have piece of land of about 5 acre and is located about 30 Kilometers far from my present school. I am ready to either lease the land to the society or transfer it to the society already running the school.
    My question is that
    Since it is very very costly affair for me to meet the expenses of the land and building in city and hence I want to apply for CBSE school in that location. Will it be possible?

      Dear Mr Rout,
      Thanks for the words of appreciation. I can’t understand your question. Let me try guessing what you have to ask.
      a) Can I lease my land to someone else who will build the school and run the school. – Yes you can lease it to a society, which will build the school and run it in their own name.

      b) Can I apply for CBSE school just on the basis of land – The answer is ‘NO’ you cannot. CBSE looks at everything right from land, documents, teachers, students, pedagogy, salaries, infrastructure etc. You have to build a building – Get affiliated with state board – apply for NOC – Post that apply for CBSE affiliation.

      c) I have no Money or resources to build a school, what can I do to start a CBSE School? – You can mortgage your land with the bank, with the help of CA prepare a detailed Project Report and meet some bank who is ready to loan you the desired amount. In this scenario also 20% – 30% should come from your end.

      I hope you mean to ask one of the above question. Wish you luck.

      Dear Dinesh,
      The best time to apply for CBSE affiliation (uphill Class X) for a school is when they have Class VIII coming up. To quote an example: For a new School, Let us suppose Maxford School is going to start Class VIII by March or June 2016, then they should be applying for CBSE affiliation by June 2016.

      In case a school applies early say when they have class VI or VII coming up they unnecessary have to recruit teachers meant for Class IX & X. Hope I have been able to answer your question. Best of luck, Let me know if you are looking for a professional consultant to help you with the affiliation process.

          Do the following
          1) Get affiliation upto X Standard
          2) CBSE doesn’t want NOC, the proof that you have applied for NOC and the same had been acknowledged by the department would suffice.

      Dear Raj Kumar,
      Procedure for Bank Finance starts once you make the trust / Society and cretae a DETAILED PROJECT REPORT (DPR) with the help of a Chartered Accountant (CA). Make sure you have resources enough to mortgage to provide as bank guarantee. To open a school the cost could be anything depending upon your vision and the facilities you wish to incorporate. A good assumption will be Rs 1300 per sq feet.

      Dear Amit,
      1) I do not understand Bigha as there are different versions are used in different places. All you would need will be a minimum of 1.5 Acres. So please calcutae accordingly and figure out.

      2) What is the guidance you are wishing to seek, if you want professional consultation you can write to me on abhiney@brightoninternational.in. We can help you with the following
      – Turnkey consultancy : We specialise in doing end to end project helping the promoters to conceptualise, plan, build and execute. This is a long term commitment where the period of engagement could be more than 18 months. This will include all aspects right from planning of the project to admissions and affiliations.

      – Franchise Management: We help school adopt successful franchise, we are already the sole franchise agents for Brighton International School, Career Point School and Vindhyachal School. We also help schools adopt other franchise also.

      – Feasibility study: This will give you a 10 years business plan, architectural and conceptual brief and stages of construction. This book would be the reckoner with which you can setup the school.

      – Approvals and Affiliation. Right from state Govt. to ICSE./ CBSE

      – Academic Management: Academic calendar, planning of the entire year, student diary and activity calendar.

      – Recruitment and Trainings. We would assist in recruiting the teachers and principal and other admin staff for you. You need not to advertise and spend any cost on recruitment & training.

      – Resource Management. What type of infrastructure and soft infrastructure and academic infrastructure to be bought and from where, i.e. listing, vendor management and supervision of the process, IT and technological innovation and practices in the school.
      Systems, quality, MIS, various formats and Manuals (SOP) like HR, Operations, Faculty Handbook etc.

      We can do all this and more for your project, we keep travelling and would certainly like to meet up and discuss more about your thoughts on the project and share our experience and competencies with you. The remuneration of the service shall depend on the scope of work.

      3) For loans approach Nationalised banks along with a CA and DPR.

    The school is already established around 12 years back in Kannada medium (State syllabus) from LKG to 10th in the rural area by an Independent committee. No issues till now.

    Hi Abhiney,
    Really appreciate your effort in putting this much of information here!

    I have a query related to getting affiliation from multiple boards:
    In the last academic session(2014-15), first batch of class 8th from our school got passed. Therefore ideally we should have applied for CBSE affiliation till secondary level last year only so that we could have accommodated this batch in current year(2015-16) in class 9th CBSE board. But unfortunately this could not be achieved.
    Therefore in order to not loose these students, we had taken affiliation from state board for secondary level, hence these students are studying in class 9th state board this year in our school.
    Now this year we have applied for CBSE secondary level affiliation as well which will hopefully be granted for next session onwards(2016-17) whose inspection is due in next 2 weeks.
    Here my question is:
    a) Can we run different classes for 9th std. from multiple boards(State board & CBSE) in the same school?
    b) While CBSE inspection, can we show the existing class 9th to the CBSE inspectors?

    Any help would be appreciated!

      Rishi,
      For Navi Mumbai get clarity from the CBSE office if they consider that to be a part of Mumbai or not. Post that all the other land requirements will come into play. Since I don’t know the geography so well about the ;and you are trying to describe, my suggestion have limited option here.

      To adopt a franchise or not is your personal call, all depends how capable you think you are and what kind of market does exist in that place.

      Hi Abhiney,

      We have received the IC for the School. One of the committe members have opted out due to personal committments. The last date of IC is over. Have weitten to CBSE about this but have still not received any reply. Can you suggest a way out. To get someone on phone from CBSE is difficult.

    Hi Abhiney,
    I have a doubt in the letter to the bank regarding Staff Salary remittance.
    Do we need to do the single cheque transfer payment for:
    all the academic staff only (Principal, teachers, PTI)
    ‘OR’
    all the academic and non academic staff (academic staff, administrator, accountant, librarian)

      All the Academic staff will do. There are lot of school who outsource or work in tandem with outsourcing parties working on their Non Academic jobs.

      I don’t think that is a possibility. Anyway for affiliation the basic minimum requirement is affiliation from the state. NOC is only a ‘can have’ document whereas the affiliation approval is a ‘must have’.

    Thanks for the information shared here!
    IC has been constituted recently for CBSE inspection. I have referred to the annexure that you have mentioned to prepare the file. My query here is:
    Do we need to show the balance sheet of the society as well which runs the school? or just the balance sheet of school would suffice here.

    Hello Abhiney,

    This question is in reference to cost calculation and budgeting for setting up a CBSE school in 6 acres.

    Question: From your experience what is the estimated cost of construction (per sq ft) for a Normal (Not Budget nor premium school) which includes everything from structures to equipments.

    An estimated range would also be helpful (For example Rs 1000/per Sq.Ft).

    Thanks,

      Hi Raman,
      This is how you can reach a possible figure
      1) Calculate the number of facilities you planing to build
      2) Start putting their length & breadth to calculate area
      3) Take a figure of Rs 1500 as a multiplier (this will include everything) electrical/plumbing/whitewash and tiling.
      4) for the playground & Garden take a multiplier of Rs 100, this would take care of landscaping/ Multiplay equipments and Playgrounds.

      Answers
      1)
      Does opening a school from preschool to std 4th or 5th need cbse affiliation ? – All the schools can start and run without CBSE affiliation. Though the schools cannot start without the state boards affiliation and permission. Please remember, CBSE is can-have board not a must have board.
      2)
      Can we start school after getting state affiliation? – No you cannot.
      3)
      What if one doesn’t get affiliation from cbse ? – No love lost, you can very well carry on under the state board or some other board like ICSE, IB etc.

      Dear Mr Behera,
      Answers to your queries
      1, How many class room requier for Nursery to std x.- One room each per class multiplied by number of section. In addition to that you have to build library, office space, labs, activity rooms and staff rooms.
      2.The stairs height is what inch.- Ask your civil contractor, CBSE doesn’t have a say in this.
      3.Construction built area is 21000 sqrft, is it enough for affilation and it is complet three star building? – Yes should be enough, just make sure the land measures more than 1.5 Acres.

    Dear Mr Abhiney,
    Many many thanks for providing appropriate information regarding establishment of CBSE school. I am planning to start up school ( nursery to class XII ).It shall be of immense help if you pls elaborate on below mention concern :
    1. Which mode i.e Society or Educational Trust will be relevant to establish school. ( keeping in view grants & aids by govt.)
    2.How much area is required to be constructed initially to start with primary section.
    3.Do permission of state government & cbse affiliation required to start classes from beginning. ( As per guideline issued by CBSE for NOC after High Court Order ).
    4.If we lease out property for 30 year to society would that property remain eligible to get loan for construction of building.

      Dear Mr Siddiqui,

      1. Which mode i.e Society or Educational Trust will be relevant to establish school. ( keeping in view grants & aids by govt.) – Both are equally eligible.

      2.How much area is required to be constructed initially to start with primary section. – Depends on your vision and facilities. Also depends on numbers of sections and size of classrooms. Since there are many factors one can’t say how much is enough. But as a thumb rule a normal classroom will be around the size of 20 X 25.

      3.Do permission of state government & cbse affiliation required to start classes from beginning. ( As per guideline issued by CBSE for NOC after High Court Order ). – Nothing in CBSE would move without the state government’s affiliation and permission. A school cannot start to operate without State Govt’s approval.

      4.If we lease out property for 30 year to society would that property remain eligible to get loan for construction of building. – Yes, I have got it done for my school.

      To start a school (which has classes beyond KG II) you have to take permission from the state education board. CBSE will only consider institutes for affiliation who have secured permission from the state board. For State Government registration Fee and all I would not be able to comment as you have to figure that one out on your own. They have a certain performa you have to fill before you apply for affiliation / recognition from the state board, have a look at it and evaluate your readiness and fill the form asap. Best of luck

      Dear Harish,
      Don’t bother your affiliation will come through, keep a track of the status of your application online. Since you have not stated the nature of the deficiency I am assuming they are of the type which can be taken care by making some investment in the school. There is no bribe involved if the school has nothing to hide plus I don’t deal with such cases where bribe is involved.

      3) How to Setup Library Example : Which type of books with minimum quantity ( Like per student,etc.) – A school library should have 5 books per student is the strength of the school is more than 400 students else a minimum of 2000 books are required. All of this is mentioned in the bye laws.

      Dear Shakuntala,
      The minimum land requirement in Bhopal is 1.5 Acres. There are no set guidelines for constructed area, as it all depends on the strength of the school which evolves over a period of time. But one has to make provisioning for playgrounds etc. A good approximation will be a construction of about 25,000 – 40,000 sq Feet per floor. You can multiply this by about Rs 1200 inclusive of furniture to get to a ballpark cost.

      As consultant we are doing two projects in Bhopal on a turnkey model, let me know if you would require any help in terms of consultancy.

        I have answered this question in my blog, restating it again – CBSE affiliation is only possible after the building and school are fully operational, so there is no question about getting in inspected during the construction phase. CBSE is not about only land and building, it is a holistic affiliation of infrastructure, people and processes.

    We have the main issue that we have a family (charitable) trust. and the second is lease deed of 35 years because i have already constructed building on land that i have owned. The other formalities i prepaired.

      Dear Asif,
      There is no such guideline on the space required for classes etc. Though in the bye laws they suggest space for class with 45 students, please go through it. Though if you decided keep fewer students than you can go down on the sizes suggested in the bye laws.

      Dear Mr Malik,
      If the land on which the school building is located is more than 1.5 Acres and is leased out to the society/trust running the school for a minimum period of 30 years, you can surely apply for CBSE Affiliation.

      Vermaji,
      It is a little strange that affiliation is securedis for 6 months, normally it for longer duration. I suggest you ask them what is the way forward on this. Yes, state board also gives permanent affiliation.

      Dear Piyush,
      If the area is under the Town & Country planning department, you will have to get the map and the layout approved.

    Thank you for your useful site. I am confused about the difference between accreditation and affiliation. Our school is currently up to 7th standard. Also does affiliation and/or accreditation change your relationship to the local BEO (Board of Education office) office.
    thank you for your time and consideration.

      Dear Swamiji,
      Affiliation has been existence since the CBSE started its operation, to define it is a process by which a school gets permission to adopt the NCERT framework and also participate in the exams conducted by CBSE for Secondary and Higher Secondary Classes.
      Accreditation is what CBSE has introduced a couple of years back to asses and maintain quality amongst the school already affiliated with CBSE.

      Does affiliation and/or accreditation change your relationship to the local BEO (Board of Education office) office?
      No it doesn’t as you are liable to respond to any query they have regarding the school, affiliation from CBSE doesn’t allow freedom from the health checks the local Education Office might have for your school. Plus they are the custodian of the Right To Education adopted by the Central Government.

    Hi,

    I am planning to start school and I was going through CBSE website and found that the affiliation permission for CBSE can be requested in the previous year of 7th 9th or 11th.

    Does this mean that I can start school upto 6th (With State govt permission for school) and then request for CBSE for affiliation..

    Thank you

      Hi Harish,
      Yes you can and that is how it is advisable because it gives time for the school owners to prepare themselves for affiliation by giving themselves a year or two.

      Hi Krishna,
      Thanks for the words of appreciation.
      Answer to your question –
      Does formation of Society apply for my school?
      YES, it applies to any school. You have to have a No for Profit Society / Trust running the school.

      – with out formation of Society can I start a school and still Apply for a CBSE affiliation?.
      Point 1) You cannot start a school in India without a society / Trust (Point 2) since State government will not give you permission in the absence of trust / society question of CBSE doesn’t arise. Anyway for CBSE also this is an essential requirement.

    Hi Abhiney
    Thank you for sharing useful information and helping us out.
    I want to start a pre school from nursery to senior kg.
    I have selected a rented premise approx 3000sqft
    I wanted to know the following.

    1. Do i need an cbse affliation for pre school ? as in we can provide quality education without cbse as well but the students passing out from nursery school(without cbse affliation but intelligent student) will get admission into a cbse school easily ??

    2.Any minimum requirement for a pre nursery school to be affliated to cbse?
    like we are planning to launch school in prime resedential locality where 2 acre land is not feasible + not required for a preschool.

    I hope you get my question in short we do not want to spend a huge money on acquiring 2 acre land.
    our strength is quality education + innovation + english speaking.

    kindly advice
    thanks a ton!

    regards
    ram

      Hi Ram,
      For Pre School and Pre Primary, one doesn’t need CBSE affiliation.CBSE is only bothered with Class 1 and upwards. So there are no requirements set by CBSE for the same. Best of luck
