The schools have been brought to notice after parents of students attending certain branches of Orchids International Schools in Bengaluru. The parents raised concerns over the false representation that the schools were affiliated with CBSE when they were actually affiliated with the state board.

Committee Formed for Enquiry

DSEL has formed a committee headed by Block Education Officers in each Taluk to investigate the school affiliation status and other related issues. As per media reports any unregistered schools which are found to be operating will be shut down and if the schools claim to be affiliated with CBSE while they are actually affiliated with the state board, action will be taken under the Karnataka Education Act.

The issue regarding false CBSE affiliation claims was highlighted after Karnataka Government decided to conduct public exams for class 5 and 8 students. The decision forced schools which previously claimed CBSE affiliation to start using state board textbooks and change their teaching methods to prepare for the exams. 

According to reports, the Orchids International School Nagarabhavi branch has been instructed by the Clock Education Officer of Bengaluru South 1 to halt all new student enrolments. The school has been accused of falsely claiming to be affiliated with the CBSE when it was actually recognised by the Karnataka State Board. This is the fourth notification issued by the Department of Public Instruction to the school regarding similar accusations which have been levied earlier as well.
