Video: Presidium School flouts CBSE rules by issuing TCs to children mid-session

  • Representative image
  • A CBSE affiliated school, Presidium Indrapuram, in Ghaziabad has issued transfer certificates to a few students in the middle of the session on July 25, defying CBSE rules and Bye-laws, Article 21A of the Constitution in particular and of Section 16 of the RTE Act in general.
  • Parents had been protesting against exorbitant fee hikes and illegal charges. Their wards have been targeted in particular. After the fee hike when the parents approached the admin in-charge (Gaurav), they were asked to wait. Later, Presidium CEO Matharoo, despite ADM intervention on July 25, started issuing TCs the same day, defying all laws, rules and regulations.
  • Many parents said that strucking off kids’ names mid-session is a very callous thing to do and is totally against the child’s right to education. It can have serious impact on the child’s mind.
  • Watch the video to see the sympathetic conditions of the children and parents:
