[Selling Textbooks, Uniforms] Govt warns private schools of de-recognition


Srinagar: The School Education Department has tightened the noose on private schools warning them of inspections for de-recognition over the sale of uniforms and textbooks to students within school premises.

The government has also barred private schools from keeping textbooks and uniform of students available at specific shops.

The move comes after complaints were pouring in against the private schools for resorting to “illegal profiteering” while selling textbooks and uniforms within the school premises.Greater Kashmir carried a story highlighting the plight of parents who complained of being fleeced by the private schools.

In the wake of the complaints, a circular has been issued by the Directorate of School Education Kashmir (DSEK) directing all private schools to refrain from these practices and keep uniforms and textbooks available in the open market.

The department through the circular has directed the recognised private schools to desist from compelling parents from purchasing books and uniforms from any particular shop and change of books thereof.
The department said that the schools should not be allowed to press parents for purchase from any particular shop and replace existing books with new one, burdening parents during the present circumstances in Kashmir.

“Action taken in this regard should be submitted to this directorate on a weekly basis,” the notice reads.
