The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has taken a significant step, revoking affiliations from 25 schools located in the unrest-hit region of Manipur. This was announced today by the state government in a press release where the list of 25 schools was given.
According to the state's Education Department statement, the CBSE affiliations of these schools were rescinded due to an issue concerning the No Objection Certificate (NOC) submission. The department highlighted that the NOCs presented by these schools lacked authorization from the state government's designated functionaries, leading to the revocation of their CBSE affiliations.
Joint Secretary Education (School) of Manipur, Anjali Chongtham, emphasized that the affiliations granted to these 25 schools by the CBSE were withdrawn as their NOCs had not been officially sanctioned by the state government's authorized officials. This action aligns with the state government's request to cancel the affiliations, as stated in a letter dated December 15.
Chongtham further conveyed that stringent actions would be taken against those found violating the state government or CBSE regulations. The statement warned of impending actions against any school found disregarding due procedures, in addition to the revocation of their affiliation by the competent authority.
The withdrawal of CBSE affiliations from these 25 schools comes after a previous controversy involving CBSE affiliations to schools in Manipur's hill districts. Thounaojam Basanta Kumar Singh, the Education Minister of Manipur, previously informed the media that the last NOC issued by the state government for CBSE affiliation was in May 2020.
