BANGALORE: Karnataka Unaided Schools Management Association (KUSMA) has opposed the guidelines issued by Department of Public Instruction (DPI)     regarding the common admission calendar.

In a press release, G S Sharma, President of KUSMA, said that guidelines in admission calendar for the ensuing academic year from nursery to class ten in all schools coming under the DPI which includes announcing the availability of seats, issuing application forms and fixing fee is a rigid regimentation in the admission process.

Sharma also stressed on violation of all the basic principles of autonomy laid down by the verdict of the Constitutional Bench of the Supreme Court. The court had said that the government domination of the educational process must be resisted. Maximum autonomy in the day-to-day administration has to be with the private unaided institution. Bureaucratic or governmental interference in the administration of such an institution will undermine its independence. The decision on the fee to be charged must necessarily be left to the private educational institution that does not seek funds, he stated.

Sharma requested DPI not to enforce the guidelines.
