CBSE Rejects Saraswati Mandir School’s Affiliation Application

Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has informed many grounds for rejection of the affiliation application of the school.

The affiliation application of the Saraswati Mandir School of Mahim, (Maharashtra) has been rejected by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) over non submission of  the necessary documents by the school management. The information has been revealed by the crusader parent of the school Mr.Makarand Kane whose children are still allegedly harassed by the school management over non payment of excessive fees issue.

Explaining this Mr.Makarand Kane said, ‘I had read an article of organization about how to check the CBSE affiliation of the school online. I was shocked to observe that the school management’s details were not shown as affiliated school. Accordingly i filed right to information application to the CBSE which confirmed the fact that the school management is not affiliated to the CBSE’.

‘As it was proved that the school management has cheated the parents of the school by fraudulently representing itself as affiliated to the CBSE, i informed same to the CBSE and asked not to approve their CBSE affiliation application at any cost. However the CBSE rejected my right to information application which sought the information of the current status of the application. Accordingly i discussed the issue with my lawyer and submitted the first appeal immediately, taking cognizance of my application the CBSE has informed me that the affiliation application of the school has been rejected.’ Added Mr.Kane.

Grounds for rejection of CBSE Affiliation-
The organization has the copy of the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) reply which has informed the following grounds for rejection of the affiliation application of Saraswati Mandir School, Mahim-
1) Non submission of No Objection Certificate (NOC)-
The information provided under the right to information act states that the school management has not provided the No Objection Certificate (NOC) from the state government.

2) Non submission of Land Certificate-
The CBSE reply reveals shocking fact that the school management has not submitted Land Certificate issued by any competent authority of Revenue Department, i..e by Registrar, Sub Registrar or Tehsildar.
3) Non Submission of Certificate of Municipal Jurisdiction-
CBSE reply has further stated that the school management did not submit the copy of certificate issued by the competent authority by municipal corporation of the city confirming that the address of the school comes under the limits of municipal corporation to claim land relaxation.

4) Non Submission of affidavit Duly Sworn before the Magistrate-
CBSE has further stated that the school did not submit affidavit duly sworn in before First Class Magistrate as per Appendix IV of the affidavit bye laws.
5) Submission of Unregistered Sale Deed-
The CBSE reply also mentions that the school management though was required to submit the registered sale deed of the land as ownership documents, the school has submitted copy of of unregistered sale deed only.

6) Non submission of Building Safety Certificate-
The CBSE has clarified that the school management has not submitted the Building Safety Certificate issued by the Engineer of the concerned government office department of  state government.
7) Non submission of the Balance Sheet & Financial Status-
Though it is an important requirement to submit the Balance Sheet Financial Status Certificate of the school, as per the CBSE reply the school management instead of school’s documents has submitted the balance sheet of the trust’s account.
8) Non submission of payment of salary through Cheque/KCS mode to employees-
The school management has not submitted the relevant documents for proving the fact that the salary to employees are paid through check or KCS mode from concerned bank.

Prohibition to Start IX to XII CBSE classes-
It is further informed that the CBSE has asked the school management that it shall not start classes under CBSE pattern for class IX to XII as the case may be without grant of affiliation by the board, otherwise the board will not be responsible for any consequences arising out of it

Reluctance of the CBSE to Provide the Information-
It is pertinent to note that the CBSE earlier rejected to provide the information above mentioned through right to information application which was only provided after the organization provided the legal draft to Mr.Makarand Kane which we believe an unfortunate and unwanted reluctant action from the CBSE.

Schools Cannot Withhold T.C for Non-Payment of Fees-Madras High Court

The Madras High Court held that the schools have only option to file recovery suit and cannot withhold documents for non payment of fees by the parents.

The judgement of the Madras High Court’s Madurai Bench Dtd.18.05.2017 which directed the school management not to withhold the Transfer Certificate, Mark Statements & Conduct Certificate of the students for the non payment of fees & also mentioned that the only remedy for the school management is to file recovery suit against the parents & further warned the school management not to adopt coercive methods, has been finally uploaded & available for download on the official website of the Madras High Court pursuant to request made by the social activist from Rajasthan, Smt.Pratibha Deepak to the registrar of the Madras High Court.

Explaining this issue, Smt.Pratibha Deepak said that, ‘I came to know about the Madras High Court’s judgement from the newspapers. However when i tried to search the judgement on the official website of the Madras High Court, i observed that the judgement is not uploaded yet. Accordingly i sent my query to the Registrar of the Madras High Court who took the immediate action and the order was uploaded instantly’.

The organization has already published an article earlier related to case laws against illegal fee hike & expulsion of the children by the private schools as follows-
Case Laws against Illegal Fee Hike, Child Harassment & Expulsion by the Schools
**We have also created a Single Page where all the Legal Awareness Articles for Common People to fight against Corrupt System including errant Public & Police Officers are posted as follows-

The order of the Madurai Bench of Madras High Court above mentioned can be viewed and downloaded from the following link-
W.P(MD).Nos.9242 and 9243 of 2017- Schools Cannot Withhold T.C for Non-Payment of Fees-Madras High Court.Pdf

Facts of the Case-
The respondent school in this matter withheld the Transfer Certificate, Mark Statements & Conduct Certificate of the students on the ground that the parents had not paid the fees of Rs.29200/- whereas the petitioner parents made the prayer to the Madras High Court to refund Rs.25000/- refundable deposit amount they had made to the school management in the year 2015-16 at the time of the children’s admission.

Important Aspects Of The Judgement-
Taking the serious cognizance of this matter, the Madras High Court ruling in favor of the parents declared following aspects-
1) School Has No Authority To Withhold Transfer Certificates & Other Documents-
The court mentioned in Para 3 of the judgement as follows-
‘3. No school has any authority to deny the issuance of the transfer certificates and other documents, when the children opt to move to other schools. If at all there exists any legitimate claims against the parents, the School has to move the civil court for realizing the same, but the future of the children should not be held to ransom on this score.’

2) Central Borad of Secondary Examination (CBSE) has to pay attention to such violations by the school managements-
The court mentioned in Para 6 of the judgement as follows-
‘6. In circumstances such as these, the authorities such as second respondent has to pay his attention to regulate due the process by which educational institutions under his control are run. The irresponsibility of such authorities ultimately leave its unfortunate imprints on the future of the innocent children to which this Court cannot close his eyes to.’

3) Arrogance of the School Management Referring Lawyers as ‘Criminals’-
The court came heavily against the school management in para 7 for referring lawyers as criminals merely because parents served legal notice to the school management through lawyer as follows-
‘7.It requires to be recorded that the irresponsibility of the fourth respondent is highlighted by his arrogance in calling all lawyers as criminals for the sin of issuance of the legal notice for achieving the purpose sought in this writ petition. It is very unfortunate someone who runs an educational institutions with an avowed object of imparting knowledge and discipline to children should lose his balance and make such uncalled for statements.’

4) Court rules- ‘School to release the documents or children to get free education’-
The court in para 8 of the judgement not only declared that the school management shall immediately release the Transfer Certificate, Mark Statements & Conduct Certificate but also that if the same is not complied the children would get free education as the school is responsible for the same as follows-

‘8.The fourth respondent is hereby directed to issue the transfer certificates, mark statements, conduct certificates and other original documents concerning the petitioner’s children viz., N.Kudiarasu and N. Eyarkai, forthwith. In case of any failure to obey this order by the fourth respondent resulting in delay and consequently leading to inability of the petitioner to secure admission for his children in other schools, the children would continue their education in the next academic year in the same school (fourth respondent) but, without payment of any fees, for the situation has arisen only due to the obstinacy and insensitivity of the fourth respondent.’

We are thankful to social activist Smt.Pratibha Deepak whose efforts have made this judgement available & may be useful for the thousands of crusader parents who are fighting against the commercialization of the education.

Rule for disciplinary action against officers of Municipal Corporation & Zilla Parishad

Rule for disciplinary action against officers of Municipal Corporation & Zilla Parishad

The people are aware about the traditional ignorance of the education officers related to the Municipal Corporations and Zilla Parishad to implement various statutory provisions under The Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act 2009 (RTE Act 2009).  However people fail to get justice or teach a permanent lesson to such errant officers  for want of ignorance of existing rules and regulations.

One of such rules to check the inefficiency of the education officers related to Municipal Corporations and Zilla Parishad has already been enacted in state of Maharashtra in the year March 2015 itself. The rule above mentioned clearly makes a provision that the final report about the irregularities and and non performance of statutory duties by the officers of the Municipal Corporations and Zilla Parishad must be filed before the state government within 2 months.

Not only the March 2015 rule above mentioned makes it mandatory that the final report about the non performance of official duties by the officers of the Zilla Parishad and Municipal Corporation should be submitted to the state government within 2 months but also it makes provision that if the concerned competent authority fails to to submit the report as per the provisions of rules above mentioned, they shall be held responsible for all the consequences arising out of any future legal proceedings too.

Also if people act as per the provisions under the rules of March 2015 above mentioned and take cautious approach, then they can get the final report for the appropriate action against the misconduct or non performance of the statutory binding duties of the concerned Municipal Corporation as well as Zilla Parishad officer within 2 months only.
The Marathi (English not available) copy of the 7th March 2015 rules above mentioned can be viewed and downloaded through the link given below-
Rule Related to Disciplinary Action Against Officers of Municipal Corporation & Zilla Parishad Dtd.07.03.2015

The salient features of the rules of the School Education and Sports Department of State of Maharashtra Dtd.07.03.2015 are as follows-
1)
Generally in state of Maharashtra the action against the public servant is taken under The Maharashtra Civil Services (Discipline and Appeal) Rules 1979.  However the above mentioned rule has been enacted to expedite inquiry as well as action against the guilty public officers of the Municipal Corporation & Zilla Parishad who fail to discharge their duties under the Right of children to Free and Compulsory Education Act 2009 (RTE Act 2009).

2) The rule declares the local authorities as a competent authority and if the competent authority gets the permission from the Education Commissioner of State of Maharashtra, then the local authority can forward the final report to the Education Commissioner for appropriate legal action against the guilty officer.

3) The important part of this rule is that the competent authority which decides to take appropriate disciplinary action against the concerned public officer has to submit the proposal to the education commissioner of state of Maharashtra under ‘List A’ and and if the same proposal is accepted by the Education Commissioner of State of Maharashtra, then the competent authority has to submit the Final Report of the misconduct and illegality committed by the concerned officer within 2 months.

4) Most important part many readers must have understood after reading the rules above mentioned is that in most of the cases the senior officers only issue the show Cause Notice to the officers against whom the citizens make complaint with relevant evidences, however as per the rules of 2015 above mentioned the competent authority has to take the permission of the Education Commissioner of the State of Maharashtra first and also submit the report not under the general format but under the ‘Lists A & B’ subsequently as explained in the rules above mentioned

5) The general people hence must keep this fact in their mind very clear that-
If the steps of permission for disciplinary action from the Education Commissioner of State of Maharashtra & subsequently the report under ‘List A’ is not submitted by the competent authority to the Education Commissioner of State of Maharashtra then there shall not be initiation of any disciplinary action against the concerned officer against whom such a complaint has been made and inquiry is conducted respectively.
In such circumstances the concerned competent authority or the department shall be held responsible for all the legal consequences for not submitting the report related to the misconduct or the illegality committed by the concerned education officer as per the Lists A & B with prior permission.

6) Education Commissioner after receipt of final report against the concerned officer by the competent authority under ‘Lists A & B’ for the initiation of disciplinary action, if required, shall make necessary changes within 10 days and submit the final proposal for the appropriate action to the state government.

7) The ‘Class A’ and ‘Class B’ officers have also been declared competent to take the action against the ‘Class C’ and ‘Class D’ officers provided that they get the the necessary permission from their senior competent authorities.

In nutshell, the common people should insist on forwarding the proposal to the Education Commissioner of State of Maharashtra mentioned under ‘Lists A & B’ under the rule of 7th March 2015 above mentioned and they should oppose merely issuance of general notice by the senior officers to their subordinate officers for their misconduct,  because the rules above mentioned clearly state that if the the reports are not sent under Lists A &B with prior permission of Commissioner of Education, then no action shall be taken against the officer against whom the citizen has made the complaint.

If the competent authorities do not pay attention to the demand of the common people to to forward the report under Lists A & B of the rules above mentioned, then the people should not waste anytime thereafter and immediately file a complaint before the courts or commissions like Maharashtra State Commission for Protection of Child Rights (MSCPCR), Lokayukt,  Human Rights Commission etc.

How To File Online RTI Application & First Appeal at State of Maharashtra

How To File Online RTI Application & First Appeal at State of Maharashtra

Many people find it difficult to submit an RTI application under the The Right to Information Act 2005 at various government offices physically owing to their busy schedule or other inevitable reasons. Not only urban people find it difficult to pursue the technical formalities but also the people at large at rural levels are also affected as the First Appellate Authority or even the offices of the Public Information Officers are located at Taluka or even district levels. However using the online portal of State of Maharashtra people can file RTI application online & even the first appeal also.

Many people waste their energy on social media for political debates or arguments, however using this online portal people can ask information related to implementation of the schemes for women and children, illegalities & unjust activities faced by them & most importantly about their grievances made to the public authorities time to time simply sitting at home.

The organization makes an appeal to people to file RTI applications for the action taken against the corruption related news published in reputed newspapers. We believe it is the most effective strategy against the corruption as the government fears the rejection of the information would lead the concerned media agency to further pursue the matter with people’s actual participation.

As above mentioned, the people of Maharashtra can file the online RTI applications under the Right to Information Act 2005 by visiting the following website-
https://rtionline.maharashtra.gov.in/index-e.php
After clicking the above mentioned link the following website homepage shall be opened-

How To File Online RTI Application & First Appeal at State of Maharashtra
How To File Online RTI Application & First Appeal at State of Maharashtra

After opening of the page above displayed, click on ‘Submit Request’ (Red Highlighted Circle) button for filing an RTI application. Thereafter following page shall be displayed-

How To File Online RTI Application & First Appeal at State of Maharashtra
How To File Online RTI Application & First Appeal at State of Maharashtra

As above displayed it would display the complete procedure & guidelines to file an RTI Application, at the bottom of the page after checking the tick mark option ‘I have read and understood the above guidelines’ & clicking the ‘Submit’ button thereafter the form to submit an RTI application shall be opened.

The applicant has to enter the details like, name, address with pin code, educational qualification, landline or mobile number, nationality, whether applicant is below poverty line (BPL) or not etc. The applicant if seeks the information based upon any document or complaint, he can upload the scanned file of the same with up to maximum size of 1MB in (PDF format only).

After filling all the necessary information, the applicant shall be taken to the payment page where he can pay the requisite fees & submit his RTI application. The applicant shall also receive the acknowledgement on their mobile number, email address in addition to PDF acknowledgement if the applicant desires so.

We make clear that we are aware of the act that the state government has deliberately with malafide intentions has not provided the sufficient resources & manpower to such information commissions so that the people get frustrated with usual delays which takes place till the final hearing.  However if people use such online portals which saves their two major important steps, may result in infliction of fine of Rs.25000/- upon the errant officer and also can help the people belonging to rural area.

The Electricity Act 2003- Remedy against Wrong & Excessive Electricity Bills

The Electricity Act 2003- Remedy against Wrong & Excessive Electricity Bills

The organization has recently come to known  the incidents in the state of Maharashtra where many people were served with wrong and excessive electricity bills. Shockingly, in most of the cases the electricity bills were many times higher than their regular electricity bills. The employees of the electricity companies literally threatened the consumers to pay the electricity bill immediately & warned them about the dire consequences of cutting the electricity supply in case of failure of payment. 

Shockingly in some cases aggrieved people paid such excessive and wrong bill amount to the electricity company for want of knowledge of any legal remedy or supportive approach from the concerned electricity company whether belonging to government or private organizations. Hence we have decided to publish this article which provides an effective remedy against the wrong and excessive electricity bills under The Electricity Act 2003.

The organization has already published an article about consumer’s right to get 15 days clear written notice before the disconnection of their electricity connection in spite of the fact that they might not have paid the electricity bill on due date. The link of the article above mentioned is as follows-
The Electricity Act 2003- 15 Days Prior Written Notice Must for disconnecting Electricity


The Electricity Act 2003 which is applicable all over the India deals with many aspects related to production & distribution of the electricity throughout the country and also about the consumer rights including of suppliers belonging to private as well as public sectors. The copy of the Electricity Act 2003 can be viewed and downloaded through the following link-
The Electricity Act 2003

The S.56 of the Electricity Act 2003 along with many other consumer rights, deals with the issue of wrong & excessive electricity bills in form of disputed amount. The reference to the Section 56 of  the Electricity Act 2003 is made as follows-

The plain reading of the Section 56 of the Electricity Act 2003 itself makes clear that any electric supplier distributor cannot disconnect the electricity connection of the consumer without serving a clear written 15 days’ prior notice before the disconnection even if the consumer has committed the default of payment.

Also if the consumer disputed the electricity bill for wrong or excessive reason, he has two options, first is to pay the disputed electricity bill totally under protest and challenge it subsequently before competent authority & secondly, if he doesn’t wish to pay the total disputed amount, he has further been given the right to pay the preceding or previous 6 months’ average bill amount under protest which shall entitle him to continue to receive the electricity supply & service continuously and the electricity supplier shall not be allowed to disconnect his electricity connection until the disputed amount is adjudicated finally by competent authority.

In brief the position of the law is that, if the consumer disputes electricity bill as a wrong and excessive then he has right to pay the previous or preceding 6 months’ average bill amount of the electricity bills under protest and to challenge the disputed amount thereafter before the competent authority.

We appeal the people not to get frightened after receipt of wrong and excessive bills and instead of worrying about the consequences, to fight for the truth and teach a permanent lesson to the errant electricity provider whether it belongs to private or public sector.

While the International Women’s Day (IWD) is being celebrated on March 8 globally & various articles about the women rights have been published, in the absence of any knowledge about the remedial measures and information about the powerful organizations where women can seek the justice for their statutory and fundamental rights we thought mere awareness about their rights shall be meaningless. Hence we decided to publish the article about Maharashtra State Commission for Women, its  complaint mechanism, powers, address & contact details.

As the free legal aid is provided at the pre litigation stage, the aggrieved or victim women are not only explained about their rights and the consequences of the litigation but also are provided with mental support and appropriate counselling is done by the commission also.

We have observed that the many commissions are not adjudicating the matters filed before them speedily for the willful conspiracy of the state government by not providing them necessary infrastructure, resources & manpower. Yet we recommend filing such complaints before either courts or commissions as the fear of not getting justice from system has resulted into complete injustice.

Address of Police Complaints Authority of Maharashtra, Pune & Navi Mumbai

Address of Police Complaints Authority of Maharashtra, Pune & Navi Mumbai.

The organization has already published a detailed article about how after the historic intervention of the Supreme Court of India in the year 2006, all the central as well as state governments were directed to establish the Police Complaints Authority at the district as well as state levels under the chairmanship of the retired district and high court judges respectively.

The link of the article above mentioned is as follows-
Police Complaints Authority- Legal Remedy Against Corrupt & Inefficient Police
Further we have also published the article for the common people to how to file a case in person or without lawyer for inevitable reasons as follows-
How to File Case Without Lawyer or In Person with Sample Draft

As explained in the detailed article above mentioned the failure to comply the direction of the Supreme Court of India of not setting up the Police Complaints Authority is to be construed as the contempt of the court. The State of Maharashtra fearing the contempt proceedings in one of the contempt petition established the Police Complaints Authority at the state level and few other districts of the state. However the it has not established the Police Complaints Authority in other districts yet.

We appeal the people of the state to file complaints and ask the local MLA’s for the failure of the state government in this regard. The organization is also preparing its legal strategy against the willful inactiveness of the state government.

However in the view of the facts above mentioned, we are publishing the present addresses of the Police Complaints Authorities in the State of Maharashtra. We thank Mr.Prasad Tulaskar, social activist from Mumbai for providing us this information.

The Electricity Act 2003- 15 Days Prior Written Notice Must for disconnecting Electricity

The organization has recently come to known the shocking incidents where mere 7 days’ delay for the payment of electricity bill by the consumers in Pune resulted in disconnection of electricity supply without serving them any type of written notice. The aggrieved people were also left unanswered by the MSEB staff who argued that auto generated SMS sent by them is sufficient notice for disconnecting the electricity for payment default. After observing the hardships faced by the common people the organization has decided to publish the information about the rule related to the disconnection of the electricity supply.

The central act which deals with & is applicable all over India related to electricity issues is known as The Electricity Act 2003. The act above mentioned can be downloaded from the following link-
The Electricity Act 2003.Pdf

The Section 56 of the act which makes provisions for the mandatory written notice prior to disconnection of the electricity supply is as follows-

The Electricity Act 2003- 15 Days Prior Written Notice Must for disconnecting Electricity
S.56 of The Electricity Act 2003- 15 Days Prior Written Notice Must for disconnecting Electricity for default of non payment.

Thus the S.56 of the Indian Electricity Act 2003 clearly makes it mandatory for the supplier companies all over the country to serve 15 day’s prior ‘Written Notice’ to the consumer before disconnecting his electricity connection for default of payment of the electricity bill.

The Maharashtra State Electricity Board (MSEB) on their official website have also confirmed this fact in their online ‘Consumer Rights’ section that ‘the consumers have right to get the 15 day’s prior notice before disconnection of their connection for default of payment’ as follows-

The Electricity Act 2003- 15 Days Prior Written Notice Must for disconnecting Electricity
MSEB Confirms the Consumer’s Right to get 15 days Written Notice before disconnection

The link of the MSEB’s consumer right above mentioned is as follows-
https://www.mahadiscom.in/useful-information-consumers/
(*Click Electricity Consumer Rights Option after opening the link).

Thus it is clear that the private or public electricity suppliers all over the India cannot disconnect the electricity connection of the consumers for default of the non payment as per their whims and fancies. It is pertinent to note that the same officers fail to perform their official duties against corporate giant and politicians who do not pay the electricity bills over the years in spite of repeated ‘reminders’. The purpose of this article is to help the common people who forget to pay the electricity bills for some inevitable reasons and face sudden hardships because of the disconnection of the electricity without any prior notice by the concerned staff as per their whims and fancies.

How to Check CBSE Affiliation of the School. Along with the detailed guide to check such affiliation.

How to Check CBSE Affiliation of the School-The organization has recently come to know the shocking fact of many bogus schools who have not affiliated to Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and yet have misrepresented the parents that hey have been affiliated to the CBSE board by mentioning themselves in their fee receipts, annual reports, pamphlets etc. and many schools even justify their fee hikes on such false and bogus ground by referring to the parents that they are the only CBSE affiliated school in the nearby area.

Such bogus schools also go up to the extent of teaching the students CBSE syllabus and compel the parents to purchase the books as per their whims and fancies and make huge profiteering. Few parents also requested organization to publish the guide to check the official status of the affiliation of the school and hence we have decided to publish this article as the process to know the same is very simple.

How to Check CBSE Affiliation of the School-
The parents simply need to visit the official website of the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) by clicking the following link-
http://cbse.nic.in/newsite/index.html
