Open / Start a School in India and CBSE Affiliation

Starting a CBSE SCHOOL in India

Any school which is affiliated to the state board and has the ‘No Objection Certificate from the State can apply for CBSE Affiliation. Let us go through this post and understand how can you start a CBSE School in India.

Schools in India has to function as a “NOT FOR PROFIT” in the form of 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.

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.

Cost of building a School

A school normally requires construction in phases (Here I am talking 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  sqft- 15,000 sq ft – year 3
  • Phase 3: 6,000  sqft – 10,000 sq ft – Year 4

You multiply these numbers with Rs 1000 – 1,400 per sq feet and this will give you a ballpark costing of construction plus furniture. 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 an 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 a 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 an 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 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 

Chhattisgarh – http://coop.cg.gov.in/Phone_contact.htm

Madhya Pradesh – http://www.mp.gov.in/registrarfirms/

Similarly one can start a school by forming a Section 8 company. For more on this, you can read my post here 

Register/ Lease 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 with Pucca Boundary Wall on all the sides

I get the 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 up to Class XII. For the 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. If the land is leased out to the ‘Not For Profit’ entity the minimum duration should be 15 Years.

GET THE STATE BOARD AFFILIATION (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 the 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.

The above mentioned steps simplistically captures, how you start school in India, now moving to ‘How to get CBSE Affiliation of your school’?

HOW TO GET CBSE AFFILIATION

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 middleman. CBSE provides the 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

Step No. 1: Get a No Objection Certificate from the State Government

For a brief period of time this certificate was revoked by the CBSE but in December 2016, it has again made the entry. I have detailed it in a separate post here. Click Here.

    • 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
    • The School basically have to write an application to the State Education Secretary Office (located in the state’s capital) and ask for NOC so that the state allows if under their jurisdiction a school start following central board. This can be a simple application where a copy of the application goes to local DEO office.

Step No. 2: Get the District Collector & DEO office to sign on Appendix II

Fill the Appendix II from the Bye Laws (Page 47 – 50). I am attaching a PDF of Appendix II of CBSE Affiliation for your reference, click here 

Go first to the District Education Officer with the following documents;

  1. State Board Recognition Certificate
  2. State No-Objection Certificate
  3. The U-DISE Code of the School (if there is letter or email available stating the UDISE code)
  4. Society / Trust / Section 8 Company documents
    • Certificate of Registration
    • Bye Laws
    • PAN Card
    • Bank Passbook / Statement
    • Audited Balance Sheet of 3 Years
  5. Photographs of School Campus
    • Boundary Wall
    • Library
    • Labs
    • Classrooms
    • Other facilities
  6. Land Documents (Photocopy & Originals of Original Deed paper or Lease Deed)
    • If documents are mortgaged with the bank, take a true copy from the bank manager
    • A satellite colour print-out from the Google Map showing land is one plot
    • If the state govt provides the facility of  E-Maps – a print out of the plot
  7. Original copy of the certificate (get this before hand)
    • Certificate from PWD stating the building is in safe and secure condition
    • Certificate from the Fire Department declaring school is safe from fire point of view
    • Certificate from the Health Department declaring school water and facilities are hygienic (get water tested)
  8. Employee Records
    • Offer Letter / Joining Letter given to staff when the start service at the school
    • Salary Details of all the staff along with various heads like Provident Fund (compulsory), ESIC (compulsory), Basic Pay & Grade Pay and other heads
    • Bank Statement of 3 months stating the debit of Salaries from the School’s Bank Account
      • Letter to the manager signed by school authorities if paid through single cheque routine
    • Police Verification Report – All School Staff including Class IV Staff. & Safety Audit Report from the local Police Department.

I am hoping after having a look at all these details, DEO will sign the Appendix II.

Step No 3: Fill the Non – Proprietary in the form of Affidavit and duly notarised

Affidavit of Non-Proprietary Character of Society. – The format for this affidavit is prescribed by the CBSE, Download the format for Non – Proprietary . This usually is getting made on 100 Rs Stamp Paper. Here is a sample for your perusal.

Step No 4: Register for Affiliation on the CBSE’s website

Register your school Online – CBSE Official Website

Earlier you have to make a demand draft as Affiliation Fee which was supposed to be sent to the board with all the above documents, now it can be done at the HDFC Bank. School is 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 the printout of confirmation page of the 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.

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 a sample of the of the FORM.

Approval of middle-class syllabus: (Up to Class VIII)
Independent schools within the country Rs.50,000/-
Overseas Independent Schools Rs.2,00,000/-
Fresh Provisional Affiliation for Secondary Classes (Up to Class X)
Independent schools within the country Rs.150,000/-

Rs.1,00,000/- (If already affiliated up to Middle Class)

Overseas Independent Schools Rs.2,50,000/-

Rs.1,50,000/- (If already affiliated up to Middle Class)

Step 5 – Track/Follow the application online & Wait for the Letter from the CBSE

Keep checking your application progress online, CBSE gives you the facility for the same. You can call and check, most of the time nobody picks up so try getting most of the update online.

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. Mostly one of them would be a Central School (Kendriya Vidyalay) Principal and the other one an experienced hand from any aided or un-aided school.

STEP 6 – Prepare a file

Following is the list of documents one should have for CBSE affiliation File –

Details of Annexure

  1. Society Details
  2. Constitution of the Society & Society Bye-Laws

Step 5 – Get ready for Inspection

Earlier – Inspection – Inspectors/Officials will have a form with them where they will jot down all the information about your school. (Be very specific about Salary structures and its distribution, Land Records – these two things get special attention. Once they are done they are responsible for sending your file to the board.

The inspecting team will be responsible for uploading the relevant documents online, hence you are advised to scan the entire file page by page separately and keep it handy in a USB flash drive. Now a days, the inspectors have access to a CBSE website, where they fill the data realtime at the campus itself.

Step 6 – Keep Checking your Status online

Once they leave keep checking with them, whether they have sent the file or not. Once the file is submitted, online status would reflect the same. In about 45 ~ 60 days of submission of the file and favorable reviews from the officials the school will get CBSE affiliation.

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

      The extension can happen, but in case if those classes in nearby areas will be termed as affiliated to CBSE/ICSE, you can land into trouble. The school is a unit involving infrastructure, people and processes on which the affiliation is provided.

      Why have you taken this much time to figure this out. Kindly check the CBSE Affiliation website http://cbseaff.nic.in/cbse_aff/Form/ICMLogin.aspx, now they also have a module where a School can change the Inspection Committee Members. If this is not working out, I suggest a representative should travel to CBSE Preet Vihar Office with the request.

    Big chain of CBSE school is operating two branches of school with single cbse affiliation from one school in the same city as they have started new branch in 2016 & they are awaiting CBSE affiliation still for 2 years now? I have this question/concern because I am planning to admit my ward in 10th Standard to one of their branch which is not having cbse affiliation currently as it close to my house and they are assuring that board exams will be arranged through the other branch which has affiliation. Students would have to go to the other branch to give board exams and they will arrange transport for exams. Please advise if this arrangement is legal & possible?

      1) Internally
      – School Management Committee can play a role in a CBSE School or in other boards

      2) Externally
      – There are lot of Education Consultants/ Trainers who have been hired by School to help them drive pedagogy

      2. 2- If we get State Board registration then how to choose a CBSE syllabus/books so that we can get CBSE affiliation in future? – You can use NCERT books or call several different publishers which are there.

    Hi,
    All thanks to you as we got provisional affiliation last year upto secondary level…we are applying for switch over to senoir secondary this year. My question is…do we need to appoint the required staff right now. We actually don’t need them as we r running class 10th. But for affiliation process, is it required to appoint now itself?

      Dear Mr Sirohi,
      Essentially any entity operating in the space of education should take permission from the state government besides being a legal entity like Society / Trust / Section-8 for Schools & Colleges and for Pre Schools there are options to run as Put Ltd company, Partnership or proprietorship firm.

      Different States have different ways of dealing with this, one has to find what is applicable for their city and state. Here is a link for you to read up more on Pre School Establishment REGULATORY GUIDELINES FOR PRIVATE PLAY SCHOOLS

      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.

      Dear Mr Patel,
      You ca surely use NCERT Books or Private Publisher Books in your School. For the new session, it depends from place to place in India. If all the schools in Morbi are starting at the same time, you can do the same.

      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.

    After the submission of the online documents and receiving the SL number, is it mandatory to submit the physical copy of the annexures in the CBSE office? This is for 18-19 affiliation

          Dear Mr Pathak,
          You are right, they don’t ask for any documents at the application level but after that it is asked and is recommended.

      Dear Prabhu,
      Answer to your Queries

      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. Can we go in for CBSE process?? – No you can’t. First get affiliation from State and NOC post that apply. Though you can keep filling the online form bit-by-bit and the final submission can happen later on, once you have all the document.
      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.

      If you need any professional help, do call me on +9170002 40006. Best of luck
