BENGALURU: Tension prevailed at Narayana E -Techno School and PU College at Mallathahalli on Sunday as parents gathered on the campus to demand proof that the school was licensed to run high school and PU classes.

According to Education Department officials, the school has a licence to hold classes only in Kannada medium till Class 5.

However, the school was holding classes in English medium from Class 1 until high school, the parents alleged. 

Anxious parents demanded to see documents to prove that the school was authorised to hold these classes.

“They are not willing to show us any documents which can prove that our children are not being cheated,” said an agitated parent.

Afraid that the protest would turn violent, Jnanabharati police rushed to the spot and controlled the situation. Meanwhile, the management assured the parents that they would get the required permissions within two months and furnish a copy of the same to them. Policemen continued to be deployed at the venue for protection.

 Sudhakar Chilla, head of operations, Narayan Group told Express,”The parents wanted to know when the school will get a CBSE affiliation and NOC from the state government.

“We have updated them of the status and have even shown them relevant documents. We have already filed for CBSE affiliation and the inspection of the school has already been done. We are now waiting for the Karnataka government to provide the NOC, soon after which we will get the affiliation as well.”

No end to parents’ ire

The group runs a total of 14 schools and colleges in the city. Two years ago, it started functioning in Mallathahalli. Recently, the parents of students in the Koramangala branch of the school held a protest for the same reason. Sunday’s protest is a continuation of the same.
