On 2nd May 2017, Delhi HC asks CBSE board to ensure that schools don't indulge in commercial activities

CBSE has been directed by the Delhi HC to keep an eye on its affiliated schools and make sure that they are not indulged in any commercial activities like selling of books and uniforms inside their premises.

This is response to the PIL filed by social worker Sunil Pokhriyal seeking direction to restrain on the commercial activities being carried by CBSE affiliated schools. The PIL mentioned about the selling of books and uniforms to students within the school campus.

A bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice Anu Malhothra also noted that the CBSE has recently issued a circular in this regard.
"We are disposing off the writ petition with direction to the CBSE to ensure that its circular is strictly complied with, in accordance with law, by the institutions," the bench said.

Recently, CBSE has issued an advisory, warning all its affiliated schools across the country to stop selling stationery items, schoolbags, uniforms, etc., within their premises or by selected vendors. School fees related clashes between parents and CBSE affiliated private schools observed from time to time. However, CBSE is continuously taking steps to stop commercialisation of schools education.
