Association of private schools opposes “admission without TC” order, writes to Minister of School Education
Indore (Madhya Pradesh): The Indore Private Schools Association opposed an order from the Public Schools Education Department that allows students to be admitted to another school without obtaining transfer certificates from their previous schools.
The association, of which the owners of private schools affiliated with the Madhya Pradesh Board of Secondary Education (MPBSE) are members, wrote a letter to the Minister of National Education and called for the recent ordinance to be withdrawn.
Citing the departmental decree of admission without TC under the RTE law, the association qualified it as unconstitutional.
âThe ordinance indicates that under the RTE rule, any school can now be admitted without a TC. The association opposes this unconstitutional order. We would like to point out to you that it is nowhere written in the RTE-2009 law that the student can be admitted to another school without obtaining the transfer certificate from his current school â, writes the association in the letter .
The association also attached to the letter a copy of the RTE Act-2009 regulation.
âIt is clearly written in the Madhya Pradesh Education Code and Guidelines 2020 – about the transfer certificate, if the guardian does not pay the full fee, he will not receive a CT,â the letter reads.
The association, in its letter, further claimed that point 54 (2) of the education code says that as long as the student does not pay the unpaid fees from the previous school, he cannot be admitted in other schools.
“According to the rules, if a school admits admission without a TC, the district education officer can investigate and take action accordingly,” the association said in the letter.
