CBSE schools can register 45 students per class, for now
New Delhi: Schools facing difficulty while registering students in classes IX and XI for the 2018-19 session are being asked to contact the regional offices of Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE).
The Board has, as a temporary relief for this year, allowed the schools to register up to 45 students per section instead of 40 as per the rules. However, private schools will have to pay the penalty to be le- vied against the school for violation of the stipulated student to section ratio. Schools having students in excess of data entered by the school in the Online Affiliated School Information System (OASIS) are facing difficulty. According to a senior CBSE official, “The Board has asked the schools to request the regional offices. But they have to give justification about the excess students for seeking permission for their registration. The online system will be opened for them and they can update (edit) the data in OASIS, but that must be supported by evidence of on ground changes made as per the affiliation and examination bylaws .”
While the last date for registration without late fee is October 22 the schools can register till November 28with late fee. “If the schools have the infrastructure and space, they can add new sections and submit the details seeking permission for the additional section,” said the official.
