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.

Location is Urban or Rural, the area will be determined by the above. 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 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 not prescribed by CBSE. One has to mention the name of the members of the society and the chairman has to take an oath saying none of them are related (Blood-line wise) to each other (for more read FAQs at the end of the post). In case some are related same needs to be mentioned in the affidavit. This has to get stamped a first-degree magistrate or equal. These documents need to get scanned for online submission. Fill in all the information required, same can be done in piecemeal. Once you are satisfied with all the details. Submit your application. A rough format is attached here, please consult your lawyer before using the same Non-Proprietary Format. In the new Bye Laws (2018), it is available on page 54 & 55 as APPENDIX-IV

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
  3. Registration Certificate of the society

    4. Financial Projections
    5. Land Documents – Photocopy
    6. Admission Announcements
  42. Annexure II

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".

    Dear Sir,
    We have applied for CBSE Affiliation upto secondary level, session 2016-17,
    For that we have some queries sir,
    1) That the school had intimated to the concerned “Education Department of the State”.
    a) We have intimated the concerned Edu Dept of State Govt. through a letter on 3/6/2015 that we have applied for CBSE Affiliation. But we have not yet received any reply, does it reflect as a DEFICIENCY during INSPECTION.
    2) We are following XSEED curriculum mapped to NCERT from class 1 to 7, NCERT curricullum for class 8. (we are running class 1 to 8 for the session 2015-16) does it reflect as a DEFICIENCY during INSPECTION.
    Please suggest us in this regard.
    3) Salaries at par to State Govt. through Bank.
    We have made a grid as follows:-
    We are disbursing salaries to the staff by cheques through SBM in a single cheque.
    a) PRT: 4800 Basic + 1680 DA + 1200 HRA = 8000
    : 5500 Basic + 1925 DA + 1375 HRA + 200 CCA = 9000
    : 5800 Basic + 2030 DA + 1450 HRA + 750 CCA = 10000
    b) TGT : 6250 Basic + 2188 DA + 1562 HRA + 1000 CCA = 11000
    : 8825 Basic + 3089 DA + 2206 HRA + 880 CCA = 15000
    : 13000 Basic + 4550 DA + 3250 HRA + 1200 CCA = 22000
    c) PGT : 20,025 Basic + 7009 DA + 5006 HRA + 2960 CCA = 35000

      Dear Vandana,
      Congratulation on getting affiliation. Take those admissions, and inform the regional office about the same. If need be go to regional office and put up your case, they are the one who are responsible for the Class IX admissions data handling duties.

      Dear Manish,
      :-Land and building belongs to me(Father), do I need to change it on trust name? – Ask him to lease it to the trust for a minimum period given in by laws.
      :-Till Vth standard do I need to have my school registered in district education department. Or I can start the school? – Doesn’t matter the classes upto which a school is running, you have to get an affiliation from the state board.
      :-Affiliation from any board required? yes when?(Planning for CBSE only) – State Board definitely. It is a compulsory requirement.
      :-Any specific norms for primary school ? – Go through the bye laws of the state board and CBSE.
      :-State board affiliation process. – Check with the local District Education Officer’s office.

      Best of luck

      Dr Singh,
      You have to specify which board’s approval you are looking to acquire. If CBSE please go through the CBSE Bye Laws, visit http://www.cbseaff.nic.in and if you just want to start a school upto standard II, than you can just adhere to the local state board conditions and can start, for that get in touch with the local DEO office and enquire about the state laws for affiliation. You can also get an idea from the education department’s website here http://www.educationbihar.gov.in/ACTPrimary.aspx

    Hi, Can a student get admission into a cbse affilated school (let’s say from std.6th) if his previous education is in state board (from std 1st to std 5th)? If yes, is there any procedure of any exam to get an admission ?

    Also what is the difference between a school affiliated to cbse and a school FOLLOWING cbse pattern ?

    Thanks in advance….

      Surely one can secure admission into any board from any board in any given class. its only admission into class X and Class XII is when one needs some additional documents.

      The difference is in the books they follow, the course they cover class wise. I am not stating the standard of the schools as that is a subjective opinion.

      Dear Manjulika,
      Before construction of the school, get the building layout approved also make sure the building has adequate facilities built in for a school like staff room, accounts section, library, computer lab, toilets etc.

      Getting a TC should not entail any fee. For a school’s complaint you can always get in touch with the local District Education Office. TC for class IX and XI classes need to get countersigned from the CBSE office they can take about 20-25 days.

    Respected Sir
    I run a school affiliated with PSEB Mohali (Punjab). Classroom size is according to the pseb board (ie 15’* 20′ ). Can I get affiliation of CBSE Board. We fulfill other condition properly. Only the classroom size problem is prevailing. Please guide me if any relaxation is given by board for it.

      Dear Gurdeep,
      The size of the classroom is not sacrosanct for CBSE, all depends upon the number of students you are trying to accommodate in that class. You can apply for CBSE.

    Hi Abhiney,
    Need to clarify one point regarding affiliations:
    This year we have applied for CBSE affiliation for secondary level. And prior to that, we already have affiliation from local DEO till class 8th. My question is once we get the affiliation from CBSE most probably next year, do we still answerable to DEO authorities for example in terms of RTE, Result reigster etc.

    Hi Abhiney!

    The status of our application shows Deficiency after IC, 15/07/2015. This is the 2nd time we are receiving the deficiency letter. The letter says ‘Coming Soon’. I have the following concerns:

    1) Will the school be able to obtain the affiliation for session 2015-16 if all the deficiencies be removed.

    2) Is there ample amount of time for the CBSE, to grant affiliation for 2015-16. I mean is there a time cut-off for granting affiliation for a particular academic session.

    Thanks in advance!

    Warm Regards,

    Hi Abhinay- I am keen on opening a school up to Class 5 in a rural location in MP. I had a few questions related to that.
    1. Can one get CBSE affiliation for a school upto Class 5 or does it make sense to get a state board affiliation for 1 year and then apply for CBSE affiliation?
    2. Can one operate a CBSE affiliated school from rented premises?
    3. Can a Section 25 company promote the school?
    I did have a look at some of your other posts and comments but couldn’t find the answers. Look forward to you responses.

      Hi Priya, Answers to your queries
      1. Can one get CBSE affiliation for a school upto Class 5 or does it make sense to get a state board affiliation for 1 year and then apply for CBSE affiliation? – One can get Affiliation upto Middle School i.e. Class VI. Doesn’t matter what level of affiliation you seek you will have to take affiliation from the state government.
      2. Can one operate a CBSE affiliated school from rented premises? – Yes they can if the land on which the premise are built is on 30 years lease to the society.
      3. Can a Section 25 company promote the school? – It can certainly manage and run the school by getting into a professional contract with the society or trust of the school.

      Roads do not matter for CBSE affiliation. Though if the campus is not approachable or have roads which are very narrow, the school will face difficulty in getting admissions and manage their conveyance (Bus) facility.

    Dear Sir,
    We are applying for affiliation with CBSE by switching from State Board of Maharashtra, as we know now NOC is not required from State Board but intimation to the concerned Education Dept. of the state about application made to CBSE for affiliation is required. As the last date for application is 30 June 2015, can this be intimated to the State Board after application to CBSE. Or is this evidence required during online application.

      Hi there,
      School should not be taking admission into Class IX in case they don not have an affiliation from the board. The school should have secured admission when Class VIII was coming up in case if it is a new school. As the process of affiliation gets over by jan/Feb of next year and registration for Class IX students gets over by October. Please have a word with the school authorities, doesn’t look healthy to me.

      1. Yes you can go for CBSE affiliation, if all the land documents are in place along with the other requirements.
      2. The clause of land leased to the society is an alternative to ‘in case’ the land is already not owned by the society or trust. In your case if the land is in the name if the trust, please move along for CBSE affiliation procedure.

    Dear Abhiney,
    Have a question regarding certificate of land for CBSE affiliation application.
    In the format specified, we need to fill the Sales Deed and then Lease Deed details and get it signed with concern authority. Question here is if we have more than 1 sales and lease deed for the land of school, then how should we accommodate that scenario.
    a) can we have multiple certificates of land for diff deeds?
    b) Or is there any other alternate possible?

    Since the application deadlines are approaching, an early response will be much appreciated.

      I hope you have procured more than 2 Acres of land for you to get CBSE affiliation. This is what you have to do
      1) Make a project report from a CA
      2) Get an architect
      3) change the land use
      4) Get the map approved from relevant authorities
      5) Look for project funding
      6) Start construction
      7) Look for furniture and other requirements
      8) Get State Board affiliation
      9) Hire Staff
      9) Start marketing
      10) Apply for CBSE
      This is what one has to do in gist. If you are looking for a professional consultant you can write to me on abhiney@brightoninternational.in. I can help you with a turnkey consultancy.

    Hi Mr. Abhiney,

    I applaud your research and keen insight about the school business in India. I am an edupreneur and wish to open a school from Nursery to 5th standard in the NCR. I have read your blog post and have a quick question –

    1. Even for a school for pre-primary & primary, does the DOE have strict requirements for land area, building specs, teacher ratio, playground size, etc, etc, etc? Is it that difficult to get a state board affiliation? Is it mandatory for a school till 5th standard?

    2. Once I get the state board affiliation, would I have to teach the state board syllabus, or can I teach CBSE syllabus? Is there a separate approval I need for teaching CBSE syllabus? Because there are many schools around me till 8th that are not affiliated with CBSE, but teach the same syllabus and advertize the same.

      Thanks Arjit,
      Answer to your queries
      – State affiliation norms are not that stringent, and they are mostly similar across India. Getting state board affiliation is not difficult.

      – Generally speaking Affiliation and Syllabus becomes a matter of discussion only for Class IX an upwards. Before that it is all a Home Examination scenario. A school is free to decide the syllabus and the course.

    1. The school has not submitted translated copy of land documents i.e. lease deed and sale deed Sale/Lease Deed in favour of School/Society running the school duly executed in the office of the Sub Registrar.
    2. The school is required to submit certificate from Bank certifying that the salary to the staff is being paid through ECS.
    3. The school is required to submit documentary proof to the effect that the school is paying salary and allowances to its staff at par with the Central/State Govt. employees along with the notified salary and allowances details of the State/Central Govt.

      Hi Amit,
      I don’t think changing the name would be a problem, given you create supporting infrastructure and documentation around it.

      Hi Masiulla,
      NIOS, infact I am also trying to get an affiliation for NIOS. As far I understand till now NIOS affiliation is a very simple process in case you are already existing affiliated school. I shall write a separate post on the same once I get my done by December of this year.

    Sir,
    we are submitting all the documents which the Board has pointed out as deficiencies.

    For the 10th point, is it necessary to sign the face sheets of annexures by the Principal?
    Last time, when we submitted all the documents, face sheets were not signed.

    Dear Abhiney
    Hope you doing good. I had one query regarding opening a school. kindly advice.
    I want to open a school under a franchise. Do I have to register as a trust/ society or a company, as I am taking a franchise.
    the school giving the franchise is already registered under some trust.
    precisely I am talking about Delhi Public School.

    the school has submitted certificate for land area 9810 sq.mtrs issued on 27.06.2013 indicate old society name . it is evident that even after change of society in dec 2012 the land school is required to submit revised land certificate indicating all parameters and name of school in the format given at appendix 6th of affiliation by-laws duly signed by the competent authority indicating compactness of land.
    2. the school is required to appoint 01 more trained teacher and wellness teacher to maintain section teacher ratio i.e.1:1.5 teachers per section to teach variois subjects. revised list of staff showing name ,qualification,designation,date of birth,date of appointement, date confirmation etc.is required to be submitted.
    3.The school is pay uniform and consolidated payment of rs. 11,100/- to all staff.hence the school is required to submit pay structure of corresponding cadre of state education department and ensure that salary,HRA,DA and other allowance are being paid as per state govt. norms/V1th pay commission duly singed by bank authorities indicating employees account no. and payment.
    4.the school is required to develop playground with requisite facilities & demarcation of various play courts and furnish evidence for the same in form of video converting the school building, playground ,play facilities and boundary wall around campus

    Hi Mr. Abhiney,
    I am going to apply for CBSE affiliation. Meanwhile I have got some doubts while preparing the documents. Need your suggestions/advice on following points:
    1. Regarding Affidavit of Non-Proprietary Character of Society –
    If I get it correctly, this letter should be issued by secretary of the society (NOT SCHOOL MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE) stating that there is no body in my blood relation with in the society (not in SMC). Correct me if I am wrong here.
    2. Regarding the salary of teachers –
    Currently we are paying around 8k-15k to the teachers. But according to 5th / 6th pay commission, adding up all the components(Basic+Grade+DA+HRA) comes around say 30k. Now how should we deal with this situation?
    a) If we show the salary on paper according to the norms(30k), then how can we transfer the same salary to the teachers through the school bank account as their actual salary is just near 15k!!
    b) If we show the actual salary on paper, then their are high chances of getting objection from CBSE?

    Thanks in advance!!

    Regards,
    Hemant

      Dear Hemant, here you go
      1. Regarding Affidavit of Non-Proprietary Character of Society – The letter should be issued by the Chairman / Head Trustee / President of the Society / Trust. Even if there are few blood relations, one needs to specify. I have written a post specifically on this topic, please read up.

      2. Regarding the salary of teachers – Don’t show anything which is not legal. Show what you are paying, CBSE only asks schools to abide by the government rules and state rules. But it is difficult for private schools to do it. So create grades for teachers and do a good work with basic and allowances allocation. Pay all the salaries through cheque and into their bank account. If the number of employees is more than 19, go for Provident Fund number and registration.

    Dear Sir,
    Our inspection was conducted on March 17,2015.Now we got a deficiency status
    The school has 3.32 acres of land in favour of society but certificate of land shows 02 acres of land in favour of school. Therefore, the school is required to submit copy of resolution with regard to allotment of 02 acres of land out of 3.32 acres to school duly signed by all members of society.
    2. 03 teachers are untrained whereas the school is required to appoint all the teachers (on permanent basis instead of adhoc) who are trained and qualified as per provisions of Affiliation Bye-Laws of the Board. The school is required to maintain section teacher ratio i.e. 1.5 teachers per section at each level. Hence, a copy of revised staff statement is required to be submitted showing Name, Qualification, Designation, Date of Appointment, Date of Confirmation etc.
    3. As per videography, it appears that science and computer labs are one only, therefore, the labs needs to be shifted to be in 02 different separate labs.
    4. The school is required to construct proper pucca boundary wall around the whole campus and submit completion certificate from the appropriate authority along-with documentary/videographic evidences.
    5. As per videography, it appears that a portion of the building is under construction, therefore, the school is required to complete the under construction work and submit completion certificate from the appropriate authority along-with documentary/videographic evidences.
    6. The school is required to submit certificates of fire safety, building safety and safe drinking water from concerned authority which are mandatory.
    7. The school is having 05 computers in computer lab and others are laptop which seems to be temporary arrangements. Therefore, the school is required to purchase more computers for labs and submit evidences accordingly.
    8. The school is required to develop playground properly as the same is full of debris remnants of construction and submit videographic/photographic evidences.
    9. Enrollment is low in some section. Therefore, the school is required to make more efforts to increase the enrollment.
    10. All the documents (each page) forwarded to the Board must be signed by the Manager and Principal of the school.

    Please help us in this matter

        Regarding the computers in the lab
        Our school is an upcoming school and we got 22 laptops which were sponsored to our school.But in the letter, its mentioned it like a temporary setup which is not correct.
        Now, on these two matters,we need a clear idea on how to go about it.

          ON these two accounts, what I could suggest is you provide the purchase orders of the laptops or bills along with a video of the class or the photograph of the students using it. Also you can write in details about he configuration and installed softwares and internet facility if it is available.

          Though this objection regarding teacher qualification is very interesting as it is the school who is supposed to fill in all the info about qualification of teachers. I suggest which teachers are they referring, than possibly you can give them some explanation.

      Dear Sellakumar,
      Here is trying to answer your questions;
      1. Please tell me what is the class room size for a cbse school to accommodate a strength of 40 students.
      – A minimum size is mentioned in the Bye Laws for 45 students. You can take that as the standard. Though CBSE is not that damant about the size of the class, but it should be comfortable. I suggest you plan for a size of around 20 Feet X 25 Feet. Should be sufficient

      2. I was told that as per the latest Government Order, NOC from State Government is not necessary to apply for affiliation for cbse schools. Is that true? – YES, I have written a separate post on the same. Do read.

      3. Is affiliation from State government is different from NOC from state? –
      – YES, affiliation is when the state board allows you to run a school and NOC is when they say they have no objection if you apply for CBSE Affiliation.

      4. How much will be the expenses if I want to get affiliated by the state? (Tamilnadu)
      – I don’t know the exact amount, assuming there is no corruption it should not take more than Rs 25,000.

          Along with me is a team of experts from the field of school consultation. Our team collectively has consulted and helped open more than 30 schools to start operation in India and abroad. Our team takes care of everything required for a school day to day operation right from infrastructure planning, affiliation to recruitments. We have the resources and the experience to handhold an entrepreneur from start to finish. The consultation fee will depend on the final scope of work which we can mutually chalk out after a preliminary talk.

      Dear Viswajit,
      Try getting in touch with a CA and get a project report made based on your assumption about the revenue model of the school. Simultaneously try getting in touch with a bank and put up a request for term loan. In case your land is worth the investment, banks will help you raise funds at a rate of about 12-14% for about 7 years time frame.

      For others: it is extremely essential to make requisite preparations and build infrastructure accordingly, otherwise due to deficiency and non-compliance affiliation can go into one loop putting schools in a spot of bother.

    We are planning to open a Flexi School wherein we would give more stress on skills & area of interest of students ,mainly sports .We have long neglected sports considering it inferior to Academics. Due to this we have not been able to identify exceptional sportsmen & always lagged behind other countries though our population is the 2nd largest in the world.
    We intend to build such an institution wherein we will nurture talents to make excellent Sportsmen & take India to a level which would lead us to the peak of world sports arena.

    In view of the above we would like to get some positive advice & guidance from you & a time to meet you for further discussions.

      Dear Vineet, Till now it is the schools who have been able to decide their fee structure as per their discretion. But can’t say for certain either it is going to stay this way or the same rule will apply across states. This issue keeps arising over years esp with parents group knocking on judiciary or the local education office doors. There are assosiations on both sides pleading their interests, but as of now schools are deciding on their own.

      Dear Humaira, There is no such requirement by the CBSE stating minimum sessions. Just to quote an example if the school is supposed to start their operation in July 2016, than the school can apply for CBSE affiliation by June 2016. So in this the application for affiliation is made even before the school has started operation. But to manage all of this the requisite state level permission should be there with the school. So in most of the cases school finish a session and then apply for CBSE. Hope this clears your doubt.

      Don’t bother about the standard size of fields of various sports. Any size will do. But please make arrangements for sports equipment and related apparatus.

    First of all, I want to appreciate your efforts Abhiney Singh. You are doing a great job..!! Now, I want to ask that our school’s inspection was conducted on 10th of March’2015, under switch-over category. The status shows “Report received 20th of March 15”. Today its 4rth of April and the status is still the same. I’m actually worried now, though i’ve been informed unofficially that the school is recommended for CBSE affiliation. What can be done at this point of time, about admission procedure for class 9 and 11 ?

    It has been reported that A CBSE school requires min. 2 acres of land. Is it mandatory that the entire land needs to be in single plot, or splts are permitted? Please reply.

      It should be a single piece of land, all at the same place. The Land Certificate is a very important document required for CBSE affiliation where the school has to certify that “the said entire land comprises of a single plot of land”.

    Sir ,I am eager to open a cbse school up to class Seven.I have 2 acres own land for this. First I would like got franchise of any recognized school and run in proprietary method. After 2 or three years I will go for cbse affilation. My question is that:- 1.

Does it required for convergence into residential? And from where? 3. After runing the business 2 years in franchise mode , whether we can go for own brand for cbse affiliations. 4.

      Dear Manish,
      Answers to your questions.
      1) Does any permission from state government is required to open a school in rural areas up to seven classes and where should apply for this – Yes it is MANDATORY to take state governments permission. You have to approach the local District Education Office (DEO).

      2) our land is agricultural. Does it required for convergence into residential? And from where? – YES you to get the LAND USE DIVERTED, the right place for that would be the Land Registrar Office. You will ahve to check the land use for your area plus you will have to pay the appropriate diversion fee.

      3) After runing the business 2 years in franchise mode , whether we can go for own brand for cbse affiliations. – Yes you can. Though I will not suggest this route. Firstly you will invest resources in building the brand in your case franchise and later on you will leave it. Make up your mind form the beginning on the path you want to adopt.

      4) Whether Construction of building is required for any approval?? – Yes from the TOWN & COUNTRY Planning department. Get in touch with a local builder he shall give you the details relating to land and building permission.

      Land Area seems to be fine for CBSE. If temporary building means “Classes and buildings not built on the the same premises” or are built in a temporary shade that I suggest you need to work on the classrooms and the infrastructure.

    First of all I appriciate your hard work done for education society.
    We three parteners are planning to run a cbse school in mp.
    We have talked to a already running cbse school with affiliation.
    School is run by a society with 8 directors presently and has 2 acres land and proper building on a 30 yr lease. Lease is given by land owner and building is constructed by society. My queries are
    1.how we can change the directors (in a single step or in a gradual way).
    2. To whom we should inform regarding change of directors.
    3.isit possible to register the land on our names and continue with the lease to the society.
    If possible then what will be beneficial, to get land registry on our name or on society’s name.
    4.any other important matter in your opinion which should be taken care of.
    Thanks

      1.how we can change the directors (in a single step or in a gradual way).- Directors can be changed any day, more important is change in the members of the society.
      2. To whom we should inform regarding change of directors. – This needs to be an agenda in the society’s regular meeting and should be mentioned in the minutes book.
      3.Is it possible to register the land on our names and continue with the lease to the society. – Speak to an advocate, this is technical query and has to do with the law of the land.
      4.any other important matter in your opinion which should be taken care of. – Inform the Registrar of the society and deal with paperwork with utmost care.

    Sir,
    The inspection of my school by CBSE was conducted on 10th January 2015 and during the inspection, the committee didn’t raised any deficiency rather appreciated. However few days ago the status on online application updated as “Deficiency after I/C” and on click it shows “letter coming soon’. What does it actually mean? what are the chances of getting the affiliation? Thanks and Regards

        Dear Sir,
        In the letter “Defiiency after IC”, followings are mentioned:

        1. Playground needs development with respect to sports events.
        2. The school is required to disburse the salaries of staff through ECS mode instead of cash/Cheque. A certificate from the Banker may also be submitted for the purpose.
        3. The School is required to extend EPF facility to all the staff and to submit copy of challan through which amount of EPF has been deposited in the concerned
        Department.
        4. The school is required to pay prescribed pay scales along with DA and other admissible allowances to the staff at least at par with the State Govt. pay scales or
        6th pay Commission through ECS alongwith the proof of pay scales in concerned state Govt.

        Please guide.
        About point – 4: we are following 6th pay commission for pay scale but having a DA of 51%. Is it a reason? What should be done.
        About Point -2: would passing a resolution from the SMC and getting a certificate for the purpose from bank be enough or need we to show the ECS transfer. I am asking this because they have given only 20 days of time for reply.
        About point – 1: would passing a resolution from the SMC be enough for the time being because development of ground would not be possible in 20 days.

        Thanks in advance

          – I dont know how much are you paying, assuming your salary are healthy enough, I suggest you make requisite allotments within the same amount of money.

          About Point -2: would passing a resolution from the SMC and getting a certificate for the purpose from bank be enough or need we to show the ECS transfer. I am asking this because they have given only 20 days of time for reply.
          – Pass a resolution from the society / trust. Whenever you have to disburse salary send a letter to the bank with bank account numbers of all the employees and the money which need to go into each one of their account. Show this letter as proof to CBSE.

          About point – 1: would passing a resolution from the SMC be enough for the time being because development of ground would not be possible in 20 days. – This is a typical query, If I would have been you, I would try to send them a resolution from the society and the SMC along with a few work orders and quotations for sports equipment etc.

      Dear Mr Singh,
      The answer is YES you can do it i.e you can go ahead and apply. As far as applying in class VIII is concerned, I have written it telling readers about that that is the least to which you can stretch your application.

      You can understand the difference between Provisional & Permanent affiliation by the analogy of Temporary and Permanent employee at an organization. Firing a temporary comes with less riders and dismissing a Permanent comes with heavy repercussions. Public sector schools can directly go for Permanent affiliation, whereas a privately aided school has to go for Provisional affiliation first and after the lapse of three years for Permanent affiliation. Quoting form the bye laws ” the Board may grant extension of provisional affiliation granted for a further period of 3 years to 5 years subject to fulfill the conditions of affiliation in the extended period.” This is in case any school is still to fulfill any pre condition which is lacking as per the CBSE norms. There are certain other norms which you can read from the bye laws.

In case if they are remedial in nature same will be communicated to the school, in case if they are of permanent nature, things could be otherwise.

    Dear Sri. Abhiney Singh,

    1. I have taken recognition of my school from Primary Education Department till Class – V and Deputy Inspector of School’s office till Class – VIII.

    I have seen one requirement as Affiliation/ Recognition from the State Board.

    May I know – if the recognition that I have from District Education authorities will suffice my case or is there any other recognition/ permission that I need to apply for.

    If yes, please let me know the procedure of the same.

    2. Further, I have created a trust under the name of my father who is no more. When I went for its registration in out state capital, it was stated that ‘Trust registration’ is a district subject but the problem is that we do not have any Registrar office in our district. So, I have notarised our Trust and got a ‘Notarial Certificate’. Please let me know, more on it so that my application is not turned down.

    In anticipation.

    With warms regards.

    We had applied for CBSE affiliation and the inspection was done in November. The current status on the CBSE website is “Deficiency After IC”. What does that mean? Also on clicking the letter link it says, “Letter Coming Soon”.

    I am wondering that did we get the affiliation or not?

    Warm Regards,
    Vikalp

      Dear Vikalp,
      I believe you are good for CBSE affiliation though there must be minor deficiencies which they must have detected which can be taken care of by you in due time. Most of the times, they are in the form of books in the library or inadequate size of some given facility or number of teachers etc. But the affiliation will come through and you would be required to do away with these issues in due course of time and reply back to CBSE that you have taken care of the same.

    Dear Sir,
    Does the amended rule 3.3(1) chapter II of CBSE Affiliation Bye-Laws mandate the state education board/department recognition prior to the application for provisional affiliation of a secondary school.

    As, prior to amended rule any school can apply for provisional affiliation of a secondary school if they obtained NOC.

    Then what is the worth of NOC exemption if school has to be recogised by state board/Department.

    Otherwise please interpret the amended rule 3.3(1) chapter II especially, the following;
    ” The School seeking provisional affiliation with the Board must have formal prior recoginition of the State/UT Govt. and also to produce evidence to this effect that the applicant school had intimated to the concerned education department of the state about the application made to CBSE for seeking affiliation with the Board”

      Dear Mr Mehta,
      I don’t think you will be able to procure NOC without prior affiliation from the respective state board. Read this article here http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/chennai/State-permission-must-for-even-CBSE-ICSE-schools-Government-to-HC/articleshow/44892734.cms

      Earlier there was a lot of corruption and arm twisting going on within state govt. to give away NOC, hence CBSE abolished the mandatory requirement of procuring one.

      Otherwise please interpret the amended rule 3.3(1) chapter II especially, the following;
      ” The School seeking provisional affiliation with the Board must have formal prior recoginition of the State/UT Govt. and also to produce evidence to this effect that the applicant school had intimated to the concerned education department of the state about the application made to CBSE for seeking affiliation with the Board” – What this means is YOU START SCHOOL —- GET STATE BOARD AFFILIATION —- APPLY FOR CBSE BY PROVIDING YOUR STATE BOARD REGISTRATION AND AFFILIATION CERTIFICATE — GET CBSE AFFILIATION

      Dear Mr. Ali, In case things are fair from your end and you have completed all the formalities and the infrastructure required by CBSE, you do not have to worry. In case the inspection team still writes a negative report, you can always challaenge it. The process is explained in the bye laws, kindly read.

      CBSE says it should be a single piece of land, quoting from the bye laws. There is a document called APPENDIX VI, where the management has to produce an affidavit where they have to sign on the following – “It is certified that the said entire land comprises of a single plot of land.”

    Dear Sir,

    We are a school in Karnataka currently running up to class 8 and are affiliated with state board and had made an application to CBSE for provisional affiliation/ switchover up to secondary level in Jun 2014. In the last week of Jan 2015 we have received a deficiency letter from CBSE that states that we have to submit NOC/ Recognition letter from State/ UT Government at least up to Class VIII.

    The process of getting permission or affiliation from state government in Karnataka and the first step to start a school here is called ‘Registration’ and that needs to be obtained from Dept of Public Instruction, Government of Karnataka. We have got ourselves Registered and are currently running the school up to 8th class. Getting Recognition here is similar to getting Accreditation from CBSE which is a next process. We currently have Recognition only up to class VII only. Under such circumstances what can be done.

      Dear Sriharsha,
      Query: We have received a deficiency letter from CBSE that states that we have to submit NOC/ Recognition letter from State/ UT Government at least up to Class VIII.
      Possible resolution: ZIf you are running the school under Karnataka State Education Board, you have to produce an affiliation letter from the Karnataka State Education Board. I have mentioned clearly on the blog, kindly read – You have to first secure State board affiliation and post that CBSE affiliation. The steps are already listed on my post.

      Dear Gourav, Yes you can start till Class VII or VIII. State NOC is not required but affiliation from the home state board is a requirement. NOC was/is a document where the state administration used to state that they do not have any objection if the school wants to get a CBSE affiliation. Best of luck with your school.

      – The right to approach/apply to CBSE for affiliation for class IX is by the June of the academic year when Class VIII has starts in your school. By June you apply, inspection happens by the end of the year and affiliation comes by Jan – Feb so that you can start your Class IX at the right time.

      Hi Sanjay,
      You don’t have to worry too much if the objectives of the society lists out education as its focus area. It is not necessary in the society’s Bye-Law the name of institute is to be mentioned. Even after this you feel like you would like the name to be mentioned somewhere in the bye-laws,
      Do the following;
      1. Convene a meeting of the members of the society.
      2. Record the minutes of the meeting where a resolution to amend the bye-laws gets passed.
      3. Make an application to the Registrar of Societies informing him about the change and submit the application to his office.
      4. Get a new set of APPROVED Bye-Laws.
      Hope this helps.

    I have a company u/s-25. There are two directors (me and my wife). The purpose of company is non profitable and for education only.
    I got to know that CBSE allow affiliation to schools run by sec-25 company. But the state education department BSA(basic siksha adhikari) had refused to even take the application for recognization.
    Now I have following two questions :–
    1. Can I start classes upto 8 without affiliation to state/CBSE .
    2. How to proceed for affiliation with CBSE without stae nod/recognization!

      Answering your queries;
      1. Can I start classes upto 8 without affiliation to state/CBSE – No you cannot start a school without the state’s permission. In fact CBSE will only affiliate you once you state’s permission. You have to create a trust or society to start the school.
      2. How to proceed for affiliation with CBSE without state nod/recognization! – Restating my response to the first question, you cannot proceed for CBSE affiliation without the stat’s permission.

    Our school has received the deficiency letter from CBSE in mid December 2014.Surprisingly NOC was one of the deficiency points though CBSE says NOC is not mandatory. We have sent our compliance report with our permission letter from state education dept and also documentary evidence to show that we have informed the local education office that we are seeking CBSE affiliation. There were 3 other minor points. We have filed our compliance for these points also. The compliance letter with supporting documentary and photographic evidence has been sent to CBSE Delhi, 10 days ago. What will be the next step? When can we expect CBSE to respond now?. Thank you.

      Dear Rajan,
      The comment in the letter sent by the CBSE must be stating this – “The school has not submitted NOC/Recognition letter atleast upto class VIII issued by state education department”. It can not state only NOC. According to this they mean to ask you to send them the letter of recognition/affiliation of the state board.

      The course of action will be to send them the document which they require now.

        The comment is “The school has submitted the copy of NOC which is not signed. Hence, the school is required to submit signed copy of NOC from Competent Authority.”
        Actually, we only sent our permission letter obtained from the state board and also evidence to show that we have informed the state board about our intention to affiliate with the CBSE. For some odd reason CBSE has mentioned about NOC! Anyway, we have now resend all relevant documents.

      Question 1.Does “Deficiency” after the Post application stage stop the inspection process?
      – Will depend upon the kind of deficiency, more often than not schools are given a chance to clear the issue and inspection happens as scheduled.

      Question 2. What are the different statuses of online application status?
      – Pre Inspection – Stage 1 (under scruitny ) , Stage 2 (Inspection committee constituted)
      – Post Inspection – Stage 1( Inspection has been conducted, report is Under consideration), Stage 2 (Approved / Rejected)

      1. I want to open a school only from ## Pre Primary – Class V ##. Is the land requirement is same as ##Pre Primary – Class X ## or is some different/lessser.
      Read this —> http://brightoninternational.in/teachclub/land-requirement-for-a-cbse-icse-state-board-affiliated-school-in-india/

      2. I am planning to open a school in Kovvur,AndhraPradesh. we already have two acers of land with constructed school building of 12rooms.
      Where is the question, you have my permission to open, if you are asking for one 🙂

      3. if i apply for affiliation in the month of december can i get affiliation for the next academic year 2014-2015.
      We are already in the academic session 2014-15, I guess you meant 2015-16. For that also the last date of application is over. The best you can do is to apply by June 2015 to garner affiliation for 2016-17.

      Read the bye-law and I have written a post dealing with land requirement read that as well. That shall provide you with the answer.

      2. I am planning to open a school in Bhiwadi, Alwar, Rajasthan. Which comes under National Capital Region(NCR), so my query is wherther this .5 Acre is for whole NCR area or only Ghaziabad Noida Faridabad and Gurgaon cities in NCR. –
      As far as the Bye-Laws goes it does say for whole of NCT. Please check from the govt sources whether Bhiwadi, Alwar, (Rajasthan) falls under NCT or not. http://ncrpb.nic.in/ncrconstituent.php this will help.

      3. Can I open a CBSE affiliated school nearby/sideby a primary Rajasthan government school. –
      Yes you can, you have to show stand alone facilities for the same.

      4. Can you please share any link or document for the rules(similar Affiliation Bye Laws) to open any school in Rajasthan. –
      Here you go for Rajasthan http://rajeduboard.rajasthan.gov.in/downloads/Hand-Book.pdf This also might be of help http://rajeduboard.rajasthan.gov.in/downloads/Recog-Form-Ka-NG-Sec.pdf,

      Hi Anmol,
      1- when we start up a school what is the first affiliation we apply for ? (i mean upto what class) – Depending upon your respective state board rules and based on your plans you can go for various grades. For Example up to Middle Class, Secondary or Higher Secondary. As far as CBSE goes, you have to first apply for either Middle Class or Secondary Classes and subsequently apply for Higher Secondary.

      2- how long after starting the school shall we apply for the affiliation ?
      For CBSE you can apply as soon as you start the school. The schools generally commence their operations from Mar/April, so by the June of the same year (the last date for application is June 30) you can apply for CBSE. The inspection team shall visit you between Nov/Dec/Jan and in case your institute is sorted the affiliation should come by Feb/March.

      3-is it legal to run a school even for the minimum of time without any affiliation ?
      Ideally speaking you cannot start a school without the prior permission from the state board. In fact there has been a ruling by the court to this effect exerting the power of the state, check this news in TOI

      4- till what class in a playway school we can teach without any affiliation ?
      I have no idea on this, but check with your state board. I think (this is my guess), education boards are increasingly looking to bring the early childhood education under their purview due to RTE.

    Does Provisional affiliation mean that CBSE will provide temporary/provisional affiliation even if there are deficiencies? What are the deficiencies that CBSE normally condones for provisional affiliation? How long do we get to set these deficiencies right? There seems to be an inordinate delay from CBSE this time. We still have not even received the deficiency letter. Do you have any information about this?

      Does Provisional affiliation mean that CBSE will provide temporary/provisional affiliation even if there are deficiencies?
      Answer: Provisional affiliation means a temporary period granted by CBSE before they finally affiliate a school permanently. Now there are two stages of rejection 1)Post Application Stage 2) Post inspection Stage.
      At application stage most often reason for rejection could be land requirement document. In case some deficiency found during inspection unless or until it is irreparable schools get affiliation and a letter of caution by the CBSE.

      Thanks Dr Attri,
      Answers to your queries
      Who will give this Approval for CBSE at district lavel? – You don’t have to procure permission for ‘CBSE’ at the district level. You have to take affiliation from the State Board for which the District Education Office is responsible.

      Can I start the admission only after getting approval from local education office? – Ideally YES, that is how it follows. Since you have to have permission from the local government to start a School in India and CBSe will consider your case only when you have an already existing school.

      Sir will you provide the all 36 mentioned document’s Model/sample with 5000/Rs. – yes I will send you the templates.

      I belongs to a rural area, in such places who is the authority to pass the architectural map? – Check with Town and Country Planning department. If they tell you that your area is beyond their jurisdiction, try getting the information from the District Education Office. In case they sound clueless, talk to the village governing body – The Panchayat / Sarpanch.

      This is from the CBSE bye-laws and is open to interpretation.
      “Class rooms should be adequate in size.- The minimum floor space should at least be 1 sq. metre per student.” {Page 14. Section 8.1}

      Now depending upon the strength of your class, you design your classroom.

      2.When we should apply for the affiliation i mean like after the construction of building or in parallel.—- First start full fledged school with the affiliatioin from state board and apply by the June of the same year.
      3.Initially upto which class we get the affiliation from the Board. — Maximum up to Class X

      Dear Ms Khosla,
      School big or small will require two essential things –
      1) formation of a trust/society to run and manage the school
      2) affiliation from any of the boards state/national/International.
      So the answer to your question is yes you have to take affiliation from the state board.

      This is from the CBSE bye-laws;
      1. In case of schools belonging to category 3(1 ) (v) there should be a properly constituted Registered Society/Trust. It should be of a non-proprietary character and its constitution be such that it does not vest control in a single individual or members of a family. The aims of the society/trust should be as laid down under section 19(1) and (2).
      2. Formation of the Society/Trust should also conform to the State Government rules in which the school is located.
      3. The Board may in special circumstances exempt schools from operation of the above clause in respect of schools set up in foreign countries where societies/ trust in the name of Indians cannot be registered under any law or enactment.

      Check from the State Govt. whether OCI can be a part of the society. I didn’t get the second part (Is there any maximum limit on the numbers of trust?).
      It is supposed to be run by Non-Profit organization, but how and where will that society secure money to fund its operation. There will be a time when the society has to pay it back with interest, plus the caretakers will earn their salary and perks as part of their involvement regarding management of the school.

    Hi Abhiney,
    We(group of 3 people) have started a school in 2012 and right now it’s functioning from Play group till class 8th having permission from local DEO. Since now our goal is to expand it to further classes (i.e. 9th and 10th), CBSE affiliation is needed.

    Since the last date of its application has passed i.e. 30th June this year, we will have to apply next year only I suppose:
    => If we apply for CBSE secondary level affiliation in 2015, then can we start both classes 9th and 10th or only class 9th in the academic session 2016-17 which is the session immediate after getting secondary level affiliation?
    => We know it’s already too late for us to apply for secondary level affiliation; nevertheless we will anyway have to apply for the same next year. But our worry is about students studying in class 8th this session. Because anyway we will not get affiliation for next session. Is there any workaround possible to fight with this issue? Otherwise we will have to issue T.C. to all the students of class 8th at the end of this academic year. 🙁

    In the process of getting affiliation from CBSE, I read in CBSE bye-laws that it requires atleast 2 acres (considering our location):
    => We have seen quite a lot schools in the same town which are not having ample amount of land prescribed by CBSE. Therefore curious to know if there is some workaround possible for the same. I am asking this question as our school land is a bit less than 2 acres (around 1.6 acres). Will that work?
    => Moreover CBSE asks for land to be converted from agriculture to commercial (education purpose). My question is they asks for whole (2 acre) land to be converted or the area on which school building has been build and not the one having playground?

    We will be highly delighted to get these questions answered as we are unable to find any expert in this field to whom we can discuss.

      Dear Hemanth,
      Answers to your queries.
      Query 1) If we apply for CBSE secondary level affiliation in 2015, then can we start both classes 9th and 10th or only class 9th in the academic session 2016-17 which is the session immediate after getting secondary level affiliation?
      – For a school introducing Class IX, the affiliation would have to be sought before one starts Class IX. You are only allowed to start Class IX.

      Query 2) The dates for application went through some extension, but really can’t be helped now. The maximum you could do is ask students to continue with the state boards or else have to let them go.

      Query 3) Land less than 2 Acres – As far as I know, there is no way around this. Some of the schools either they must be old when the laws were not stringent or they must have shown some land to the authorities which as an outsider is not known to you.

      Query 4) Agriculture to commercial (education purpose). My question is they asks for whole (2 acre) land to be converted or the area on which school building has been build and not the one having playground? – Diversion of land should happen for the entire 2 Acres.

    Dear Sir,
    We have submitted online application to C.B.S.E. Today I have seen that they have written ‘Deficiency’ in my online application status, but did not mention about the nature of deficiency.
    Our school is running under trust which comprising 6 members out of which 3 are blood related. is it a problem?
    We have purchased the land for school in two phases. first one is in the name of Smt. B.L.Sen who is the settler of the Trust and while registering the trust she has authorized the trust to use this land for the school purpose. Rest portion of land is registered in the name of the trust itself. will it be any problem?
    We have applied for fire safety certificate which is yet to be received. Will it be a problem?
    Some of our teachers are untrained as shown in the online application. Will it be a problem.

    Sir,

    We have 0.7 acres of land in gurgaon. Can we get a CBSE affiliation upto middle school as RTE rules in haryana permit affiliation upto middle school with minimum land area of 0.5 acres or does CBSE require minimum 1acre for any level of affiliation?

      I guess Gurgaon comes under National Capital Region (NCR). The minimum requirement is 1 acres.

    We are running a high school which is permanently recognised from state board but the land on which school is built is total 1650 Sq yards. Though we have another vacant land of 3800 Sq yards located at 5 km distance from main school. Now we want to apply for CBSE affiliation. Appreciate if you can provide answers of the following

    1. Will we get CBSE affiliation upto 10th class given that school is constructed in total 1650 Sq yd area ?

    2. Should we include the other plot area 3800 Sq yd by opting for option of school running at two site ?

    3. Is there any room size applicable for affiliation as our class room size are smaller

      Dear Tarun,
      1) I don’t know which city are you guys located but I have written enough about the land requirement in my post, please go through it.
      2) School has to be situated on a single piece of land, kindly refer to the Appendix VI i.e CERTIFICATE OF LAND and read the last line of the first paragraph. It clearly states that the District Magistrate or The Registering Authority has to certify that “It is certified that the said entire land comprises of a single plot of land”.
      3) Room sizes can vary depending upon number of students you are looking to admit. Though a notional measurement given by CBSE is in the Bye Laws (Read Page 7), “Class rooms – minimum size should be 8 m x 6 m (approx 500. sq. ft.)”.

        Thank you so much for your timely response. Our school is located in gurgaon .

        While going through affiliation by laws I found some relaxation in infrastructure for school affiliated before some time perio, I guess it is 1996 and before. Our school also got haryana board affiliation in 1993. What kind of relaxation is it for such schools?

          I think the relaxation is for the schools affiliated before 1996. The relaxation comes in the form of Land Requirement. To quote from the bye laws “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”.

        Classrooms – 22X18 (396 sqft). Which one should be followed ? Is it sacrosanct for getting the affiliation ?

      I have received this query earlier also. In this case, please check with your DEO office this same question. Is the letter given to you by the DEO office a substitute for an affiliation letter? CBSE is asking for the affiliation letter as they want to make sure it is a genuine school with basic minimum infrastructure already vetted by the state affiliation board.

    I want to ask question related to land document. We are running our school in a temporary building and there are land issues going on so there is no land certificate with us. We have started the process of this issue and contacted with government but it is taking time for the possession of land.
    Please tell me that the affiliation can go without the land certificate. We are having an architectural design of the school building which will be constructed.

      Hi Atul,
      You can only go for approval up to Secondary Level once you have Class VIII. Since you have classes up to Class VI, I suggest you have to take an approval up to Middle School. I suggest introduce Class VII & VIII and apply for approval up till Class X. This will save you time, effort and money.

      Though I am finding it difficult to understand your questions. I shall try;
      Q1) Land was purchased in the name of trust. Now i want for land is leased to school name or land owned by trust name is applicable —–> (My inference: Initially the land was purchased in the name of trust. Now you are wondering will this be alright or not for Certificate of Land.)
      Answer: Yes, that is alright. Land should be either owned by the Trust/Society or should be Leased to the society for a period of 30 years or more.

      Q2) School running through trust. Now is must for Non-Proprietary Affidavit for trust. ———->
      Answer: The trust/society running the school should strictly have Non-Proprietary character.

      There is should be no more than 45 students in a class. There is no minimum limit. Total number of teachers should be Total number of section multiplied by 1.5. Example if you have 10 section from nursery to Class VII, total number of teachers should be 10 X 1.5 = 15 + Principal. You gotta have a qualified Librarian. No way out, it could be critical.

      Dear Vasudha,
      I don’t know about this RTE letter you are mentioning. I am assuming if you are already running a school and teaching kids under RTE and getting paid for it by the government, you must have taken an affiliation from the State Government. That is the certificate with the highlighting the School’s affiliation number is what CBSE is asking you to upload.

      Dear Neeraj,
      You have to be specific in defining ‘more’, then only I could help in answering your queries . I hope the cost you are trying to figure out is about the cost of Affiliation and not for the entire project of starting a school. The answer is there is no ‘under the table’ amount involved with this as CBSE is a very fair organisation. All the costs are already listed on the CBSE’s website.
