In a fraudulent act, Swami Awadheshanand Public School in Nandanvan area of the city was exposed of misleading parents and collecting fees even though it did not have approval from the CBSE. The incident came into light during an inquiry conducted by the education department on the complaint of parents.
Now parents have demanded that a case of fraud should be filed against the school management for misleading people.
The school despite not having CBSE accreditation, deprived students of online education in the last session as school fee was not paid by them. So the angry parents lodged complaints against
the school with the education department.
Following this, the education department constituted an inquiry committee headed by a deputy education officer. The inquiry revealed irregularities in the functioning.
Apart from this the school also mandated books of private publishing firm. The school does not even have separate laboratory and playground. Similarly, activity fee was also imposed on the students.
Many such irregularities have come to fore in the inquiry. Investigating officers found that the school did not have accreditation for class IX and X. Hence, the students of class X were appearing for the examination from its Kamptee branch.
Mohommed Shahid Sharif, Chairman of RTE Action Committee said that a hearing was held before the divisional education deputy director regarding the irregularities of Swami Awadheshanand Public School.
It is understood that the school got account approval just four days ago. The school has violated government rules. Arbitrary fee was imposed on the parents while operating the school illegally. Therefore, a case of fraud should be filed against the school and the school should be de-recognised, added Sharif.
