The Gujarat government has ordered a probe against schools in the state that are teaching NCERT syllabus without getting the due affiliation from the CBSE. A meeting in this regard was held between Minister of State for education Nanubhai Vanani and the education department officials where all district education offices have been asked to complete the probe against erring schools — running NCERT syllabus in classes 1 to 8 — by December 20, 2017, stated an official release here Saturday.

Officials conducting the probe have been specially instructed to ensure that students are not affected in any manner. The government order also asks the DEOs and DPEOs to issue show-cause notices and conduct enquiries against erring schools under the RTE Act 2009 and Bombay Primary Education Act 1949.
The decision comes after a police complaint was filed against the management and trustees of four state-board affiliated schools in Rajkot that were allegedly teaching the NCERT syllabus.
