Taking a stern stance, the Uttar Pradesh government, led by Chief Minister Yogi, is gearing up for a robust campaign against unregistered schools scattered across the state. In a proactive move, schools found operating without proper recognition or persisting despite revoked recognition will now face significant consequences, including hefty fines reaching Rs 1 lakh.



The Directorate of Basic Education has released clear directives to all basic education officers, assigning them the task of identifying unregistered schools and ensuring strict actions are taken against them. The to-be-launched campaign mandates that block education officers thoroughly investigate schools within their designated blocks, taking decisive measures against any found operating without the necessary recognition.



In order to track the campaign progress, all block education officers are mandated to furnish a certificate to the directorate, confirming the absence of unregistered schools within their respective blocks. The comprehensive list of schools requiring corrective action must be presented to the Basic Education Director by November 22, 2023.



Ganesh Kumar, the Joint Director of Basic Education, has communicated these directives to all district basic education officers, underscoring that no school can be established or operated without obtaining recognition, as specified in the Free and Compulsory Children's Education Act.



Violating this rule will result in significant fines, with penalties escalating to Rs 1 lakh. Moreover, if the violation persists, the offenders will be liable to pay a daily fine of up to Rs 10,000 until compliance is assured.



It is imperative to underline that the state government manages various educational institutions, including council primary, junior high school, aided junior high school, recognized primary, and junior high schools. These institutions are designed to provide education to children up to the age of 14 years in the state. The implementation of the Free and Compulsory Children's Education Act, coupled with these stringent measures, aims to uphold the quality and legality of educational institutions in Uttar Pradesh.
