Delhi govt asks pvt schools to not follow CBSE guideline on appointment of principals

NEW DELHI: Delhi Government has asked private schools in the national capital to not follow the recent CBSE circular on appointment of principals as the new clauses are contrary to the provisions of Delhi School Education Rules.

The government has also clarified that any "bye-laws of affiliation of 

CBSE or any other Board can't override the provisions of the Act passed by Parliament".


Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) had last month notified that private schools affiliated to it will no longer be able to appoint principals or heads on their own as the board has empowered itself to monitor such appointments in schools that fall under its ambit.

"CBSE has amended existing affiliation Bye-Laws of the Board, relating to constitution of the 

Selection Committee in the case of recruitment of the Head of the Private Unaided recognized schools. The said constitution of Selection Committee is contrary to the provisions of Delhi School Education Rules, 1973," Directorate of Education (DoE) has said in a communication to schools.
