KOCHI: The major proposals in the draft prepared by the CBSE for revision of the affiliation bylaw are ‘to publish the fee structure on school websites and not to make government NOC mandatory for affiliation.’
It has also been recommended that parents be given representation in the management committee to keep them posted about the proposed fee hikes.

The CBSE had set up a committee to review its affiliation bylaws, in an effort to end commercialisation of school education. The revised affiliation bylaw, which is currently in the draft form, is expected to be enforced soon.
Kerala CBSE School Managements Association  president T P M Ibrahim Khan said the Association had requested the CBSE to withdraw suggestions that involve revelation of confidential information about schools.

The Association has not objected to the suggestion to publish the fee structure on school websites. “The fee structure is available in the prospectus. Schools are at liberty to fix fees based on the amenities they provide. If the classroom is air conditioned, the fees will be higher,” he said. “The affiliation bylaw has not been consolidated yet. We have accepted all the suggestions, except the suggestion to reveal confidential information. Another suggestion is to revise up the age limit of principals to 60 years, with conditions. While the normal age limit is 58, the management could extend a person’s service period by two more years if he/she has an exceptional track record,” he said.
