Chandigarh: The Haryana Government on Monday notified amendment of Haryana School Education Rules, 2003 which provide relaxation for re-cognition of all those private schools which had applied for permanent recognition before April 10, 2007.

 Education Minister Mange Ram Gupta said that under the new Rules about 2500 private schools would be benefited. Such schools would not be required to submit No Objection Certificate (NOC) regarding land use to the department for the purpose of recognition or up-gradation. With the amendment of the Rules, a long standing demand of the students, their parents, and the private school managements has been satisfied.

Gupta said that to facilitate schools, powers had been delegated to district level committees headed by concerned Deputy Commissioners for processing of applications and grant of recognition to the schools included in the list. These committees have been further empowered to decide the stage upto which a particular school could be recognized in accordance with the availability of the land and buildings vis-à-vis the prescribed norms.

He said that the committees have also been empowered to grant relaxation in norms upto 10 per cent. The committees have been also asked to fix the number of students which can be admitted in a class and in whole of the school based on the availability of infrastructure, subject to the condition that minimum 10 sq.ft. area per student for Secondary and senior classes and nine sq.ft. area per student for Elementary classes is made available.

The above amendment in the Rules have been made with an aim to remove the difficulties being faced by lakhs of students studying in un–recognized private schools because in the absence of recognition those students had to send their admission forms to the Board as private candidates. The Minister informed that under the new Rules functioning of the private schools would further improve in the overall public interest of providing quality education to the children of the State. This has been done by the State Government as a part of its commitment of facilitating healthy growth of education in both public as well as private sector.
