Following the complaints of legislators in Assembly about non-conformance by CBSE/ICSE schools, Maharashtra government is all set to assert their increased authority over these schools. Legislators complain that despite fee hikes, state government does not have enough control on these schools.
Currently, the state has limited functionary control over these schools and is only involved in granting No Objection Certificate (NOC), after auditing the land and resources to meet the minimum pre-requisites.
Minister of State for School Education Hasan Mushrif, has indicated the government intentions to formulate a policy for greater control over these schools. If the aforesaid policy is implemented, state government will be in position to have more say in fee structure and similar important decisions.
