Chhattisgarh is one of the newly formed states of India, it is not very renowned due to the improper educational infrastructure that it offers. The state government is continuously making efforts to launch programs that would encourage education among its people. This includes providing free and compulsory education to children of age group 6 to 14 years and promoting education among unprivileged sections of the state. Apart from the government aided schools, many private schools are also spread across the state of Chhattisgarh. Owing to this rapid development in the education system of the state, many entrepreneurs are stepping forward to start their own venture.
If you also want to start a school in Raipur, Bilaspur, Raigarh, Korba, Ambikapur or any other city of Chhattisgarh, follow the procedure given below.
To begin with, you first need to determine the grades up to which you will be opening a private school. It is a wise decision to start your school with fewer grades and then eventually add higher grades to it.

Remember that you are supposed to start with the construction of your school within 3 years of obtaining this certificate; else, you will have to apply for its renewal.
Next, the land owing agency of the state will allot you an appropriate land at subsidized rates only after receiving the letter of sponsorship from the DoE. Following which you can begin with the construction.
Once your school is established, you need to apply for recognition with the governing authority. Primary school recognition is granted by MCD whereas secondary school recognition is granted by the DoE. The recognition for higher grades is also granted by the DoE but only after a gap of 2 years.
