The regional office of the CBSE has filed a report with its Delhi headquarters against DAV BSEB after its principal was made an accused for running an exam racket.

Ramanuj Prasad, the principal, has been made accused under Section 420 and related sections of the IPC.

The Shashtri Nagar school is in the limelight for intentionally failing its students in Class XI and allows promotion by taking bribe. 

Rashmi Tripathi, the CBSE regional officer, has filed a report against the school on March 22 to the headquarters and is waiting for response from Delhi. 

Asked whether the regional office has taken any action against the school yet, Rashmi said: “We have no authority to take any action without the consultation of CBSE, New Delhi.”

Rashmi added: “Our regional team will check all the schools and make sure that the school gets blacklisted for violating the CBSE norms and ethics. I will also talk to the students and see there will not be any injustice to students’ results in Classes IX and XI. We strongly condemn the practice of treating educational institutions as business enterprises and students as trading commodities.”

Nikhil Kumar, secretary-general of DAV Teachers’ Welfare Association, said: “For cheating the students, the school may get blacklisted from the CBSE under Clause 17.3. The CBSE New Delhi cancelled the school from checking the model centre for copy affiliation and the responsibility was given to D Ram DAV at Gola Road. The school is facing a number of charges since 201.”

“These issues were often raised by the students but we never know that the school authority victimised them for money. The committee of the school will take action against the offenders after the probe,” said Indrajeet Rai, the manager and the newly appointed principal of DAV BSEB.
