     Central Board of Secondary Education is mulling over its plan of establishing an offshore – CBSE regional centre in West Asia, to fulfill the needs of near about 150 schools in the region, informed Shashi Tharoor, Union minister of Kerala for HRD. 

    In the Gulf region there are about 150 schools, among which majority schools were operated by Keralites, and for the administration related matters the CBSE officials had to go to Delhi, said Shashi Tharoor.

    Over 60,000 students in Class 9 to 12 are studying in the CBSE-affiliated schools of the Gulf, hence the launch of nearby regional centre will help to manage those schools more effectively, without devoting much time.

    The Gulf school management’s problems would get solved after the proposed regional centre in the Gulf will commence to function within the next two months, said Tharoor. 

    CBSE schools of Kerala lately asked for a clarification from the Centre whether or not the state or Central government had authority over the implementation and selection of CBSE schools syllabi. Upon which Tharoor clarified that Centre have power over CBSE schools. The mentioned term 'appropriate government' in the Right to Education Act represent the Central government, in CBSE affiliated School case.
