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.

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.

Huge Profiteering for Online RTI Application By The State Government Exposed.

The State Government is charging Rs.5.90/- extra in the name of Portal Fee & Taxes, thereby making profiteering of 59% from common people for each application.

In yet another shocking  incident, the organization has exposed the huge profiteering done by the state of Maharashtra as it is collecting around 59% extra fees than the prescribed fee of Rs.10/- from each applicant of right to information application submitted under Right to Information Act 2005 through its official online portal.

With an objective to achieve the good governance, the State of Maharashtra had launched their official online portal for submission of the right to information application few years earlier. The official link of the website is as follows-
https://rtionline.maharashtra.gov.in/index-e.php
The organization had also published an article about how to file an RTI application through online portal of State of Maharashtra, the link of the article is as follows-
How To File Online RTI Application & First Appeal at State of Maharashtra

The Fees of an RTI Application Fixed at Rs.10/- by the Rules of 2012-
The state government wide their notification in the year 2012 has fixed fee of an RTI application at Rs.10/- & the same can be paid by the applicant through judicial stamp, postal order or through Demand Draft etc. Hence in our opinion, it is illegal to charge in excess than Rs.10/- as fixed by the State Government of Maharashtra itself.

Exposed- Collection of the Excessive and Exorbitant Fees in the Name of Portal Fee and Taxes-
However the right to information applicant who is above the poverty line has to pay Rs.5/- as ‘Portal Fee’ and Rs.0.90/- for the CGST & SGST Taxes on the official website above mentioned. Thus the actual charge for the RTI application submitted through online portal of the State of Maharashtra becomes Rs.15.90/- ( Rs.10/- already charged as per the Rules of 2012+ Rs.5.90/- as Portal Fee & Taxes) which is violation of the rules made by the State of Maharashtra itself.

Analysis of the exorbitant fees by charged by the state government-
We decided to analyse the actual probable cost for running the whole portal. However in spite of that, it is clear that the state government has been charging exorbitant fees for the online RTI application as the website is not a separate mechanism but only an ‘application forwarding platform’ of the RTI applications to the concerned departments.

Any beginner software developer would explain that the once the email ids and mechanism software is installed to forward the RTI applications received by the applicants, no huge cost is required to run the website thereafter.

The Other Central and State Government Websites Providing  Free Services With The Same Facilities-
It is pertinent to note that very own website of the Chief Minister of the State of Maharashtra to resolve the grievances of the common people through ‘Aaple Sarkar Grievance Redressal Portal’ provides many facilities like submission of applications and grievances, their tracking & time to time updates, appeals to Nodal Officers etc. but no fee is charged from the people at all. Apart from this, even an online right to application portal of the central government charges fee of Rs.10/- only for the RTI application and no additional cost is charged from the common people.

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

Huge Profiteering by the State Government by Charging 59% Extra Fees for an RTI Application-
As above mentioned it is clear that the state government is making huge profit from the RTI applicants and the same can be explained with simple mathematics too, e.g-
If it is assumed that in one year 10 lac people filed RTI applications each which would mean that the state government a has charged Rs.10+Rs.5.90 from each RTI application, & thus the government –
1) Has charged excessive amount of Rs.59,00,000/- from the common people in addition to-
2)  The collection of Rupees 1 crore  i.e. Rs/-10 from ten lac RTI applicants!

It is also clear that the maintenance cost of the website must be very negligible compared to such huge income and profiteering which is being done over the years. The organization shall take appropriate legal action against such huge profiteering soon.

In yet another shocking development in ongoing tussle between parents and the school management of Saraswati Mandir School of Mahim, the ex principal of the school management has made shocking revelation against the school management that she was allegedly harassed by the school management to lie about the Central Board of Secondary Education’s (CBSE) affiliation status to the parents.

The organisation has been helping the parents of the Saraswati Mandir English Medium School legally and has provided all the legal assistance to the parents before the courts & commissions earlier. The Maharashtra State Commission for Protection of Child Rights (MSCPCR) accordingly had found the principal of the school management guilty of inflicting mental harassment upon the children for want of illegal fees & had directed education department to take the appropriate legal action against the principal, who was removed from the school management subsequently. The news related to our this success was published in Sakal Times as follows.

As at present the matter is sub judice before the Bombay Court and Maharashtra State Commission for Protection of Child Rights (MSCPCR) hence we are avoiding to make any further comments on this issue, but the revelation made by the ex principal as above mentioned makes it clear that the school management will soon have to swallow the bad pill.

Amanora School Agrees to Readmit Expelled Children Post Under Protest Payment

Amanora School Agrees to Readmit Expelled Children Post Under Protest Payment

The parents of expelled children of the Amanora school (Hadapsar, Pune) have got some relief from the education department as the school management as per the Education Officer’s letter Dtd.30.03.2019 has agreed to readmit the expelled children over non payment of fees issue post under protest payment from the parents further subject to future adjudication of the issue by District Court in this matter.

Explaining the issue, Me.Dheeraj Gedam said that, ‘After the arbitrary expulsion of around more than 450 children, we launched peaceful protests at the office of the education department. As per the education department’s report, the school management has committed the gross violations of the Maharashtra Educational Institutions Regulation of Fee Act 2011 & The Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act 2009. The school management wanted us to pay around Rs.75000/- & Rs.85000/- for the two academic years on the contrary we wanted to pay Rs.49950/- for both the academic years respectively.’

‘Finally instead of total default and for the purpose of the school management to meet the administrative and other expenses, we decided to pay the Rs.49950/- under protest for each academic year and would pay the balance amount only after the adjudication of the disputed fee by the competent court. The school management has assured the readmission of the children after the payment of mutually agreed fees.’ Added Mr.Gedam.

The another parent on condition of anonymity said, ‘The school shall be reopened on 8th April 2019. We believe that the school management would abide by its commitment and would cancel expulsion and readmit the expelled children as assured before th education department, failure to do so shall not only result the appropriate civil and criminal proceedings against the school management but we would initiate the same against the officials of the education department also.’

Defying Education Minister’s Instructions, Amanora School Expels Hundreds of Students

The student’s leaving certificates are issued unilaterally by the school management over non payment of the illegal fees, allege parents.

2

In yet another shocking incident, Amanora school (Hadapsar, Pune) administration has expelled hundreds of students over dispute of payment of fee issue with the parents. The leaving certificates of students have been sent through postal mode to hundred of parents of the school. The more shocking fact is that the parents today were present before the Education Minister Mr.Vinod Tawde’s office to get the update about his assured action taken report against the school management and at the same time they were informed about the issuance of leaving certificates without any demand from the parents.

Explaining about the issue, Mr.Dheeraj Gedam said, ‘We have been raising the issues against illegalities committed by the school management in fixing the fees of previous academic years. The education department has also confirmed the illegalities committed by the school management in their various reports & even the proposal of the cancellation of the No Objection Certificate (NOC) has been submitted to the higher authorities since past many months. In spite of these facts the education department mere has remained mute spectator thereafter and hence the school management has taken benefit of their indifference time to time’.

‘Accordingly we recently met Education Minister Mr.Vinod Tawde at the Mantralay on 1st of March 2019. Even the representatives of the school management were present in the meeting. Accordingly Mr.Tawde had assured us that he would soon issue the appropriate direction for the fixation of the fees as the same was declared illegal by the education department itself. He also had instructed the school management not to harass or expel the children at any cost over the fee dispute. Hence today we visited his office to ask about the development about the action taken report assured by him and shockingly at the same time we came to know the fact that the school management has expelled our children and issued the leaving certificates without our demand.’ Added Mr.Gedam.

The facts we have observed after examining the documents provided by the parents are as follows-
The education department has confirmed in their various reports that the school management has violated the provisions of the Maharashtra Educational Institutions  Regulation of  Fee Act 2011 in fixation of the fees and hence recommendations for strong actions against the school management have been made.

Also the school has been found guilty of violating the provisions of the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act, 2009 and hence action under S.18 is also recommended against the school management.

MSEB Rectifies Wrong Electricity Bill Of Rs.14110 to Rs.310/- Fearing Legal Action

A senior citizen has taught a lesson to electricity board which rectified the wrongful and excessive electricity bill fearing civil & criminal action.

Using the legal awareness articles published by our organization related to electricity laws especially to consumer rights under The Electricity Act 2003, a senior citizen from remote village of Konkan area of State of Maharashtra has taught an errant Maharashtra State Electricity Board a lesson and successfully compelled them to immediately rectify the wrongful and excessive electricity bill of Rs.14100 to as low as Rs.310/-.

With our past experience and aim to provide legal awareness and proper strategy to common man to fight against corrupt system, we have been publishing legal awareness articles earlier, the links of few important articles are also given below this article. Out of these articles, the articles related to consumer rights under electricity laws published recently are as follows-
The Electricity Act 2003- Remedy against Wrong & Excessive Electricity Bills
The Electricity Act 2003- 15 Days Prior Written Notice Must for disconnecting Electricity

Explaining the issue, Mr.Gurunath Bandwalkar a resident of Dabholi Village in Konkan region of Maharashtra said, ‘I used to get average electricity bills around Rs.200/- for my home usages since past many months. In the current month also i expected it would be the same as there was not any extra electricity usage than average, however i was shocked to see the electricity bill amount at Rs.14100/- for current one month’s usage only. I visited the local Maharashtra State Electricity Board’s (MSEB) office where i got rude replies in addition to the warning to pay the bills immediately to avoid disconnection which caused me tremendous mental harassment’.

‘Accordingly i contacted my colleague and Mumbai based social activist Mr.Prasad Tulaskar who informed me about the ongoing legal awareness articles about electricity laws by Bharatiya Krantikari Sangathan. Thereafter i again went to office of the MSEB and explained S.56 of the Electricity Act which allows to pay the preceding 6 month’s average bill under protest to consumer in case of dispute and also warned them of criminal prosecution in case of disconnection for such wrongful bill. The officer in charge immediately rectified my electricity bill from Rs.14110/- to Rs.310’ Added Mr.Bandwalkar.

We have yet again proved the fact that if the common people of the country are provided legal awareness & well planned strategy, they are enough courageous to teach the corrupt system a permanent lesson. If this can happen like in present case in the remote village like Dabholi of Konkan region of Maharashtra, same can be achieved at other regions of the country too. It further gives us immense pleasure as the hard worked legal awareness articles have come useful for common people to fight against the corrupt system.

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.
