The Erocon’s customised CBSE Affiliation Advisory Services
Establishing your dream school is replete with numerous bottlenecks at the pre-affiliation stage as well as the post-affiliation stage. No time can be said a better time to take off your dream project. In the endeavour of making the procedure simpler, and transparent, CBSE amended its Bye-Laws in October 2018 after a gap of almost six years.
CBSE known as the most dynamic board among all 41 boards of India, has revised its affiliation norms & regulations substantially, reducing the paperwork, state-related documentations, and simplifying the procedural tediousness. The revised CBSE Bye-Laws underscore the more simplified process to be followed, alleviating the burden for the infrastructural development, and promoting the more sports activities in order to impart the balanced education in an era of technological penetration as well as the epoch of the indoor activities. Through these recent amendments, the board has addressed the glaring ambiguous areas through Chapter-15 special provision, focusing on academics and training even more.
Before the amendments and post-amendments, Erocon has established its name in the market, rendering its highly acclaimed intellectual advisory services pertaining to CBSE Affiliation.
With respect to the applications, here is a three variety of applications:
- Approval for Middle School Syllabus for 6thto 8 grader
- Secondary Level Affiliation for Class 9thto 10th
- Approval for Senior Secondary Level for 11thto 12thgrader
When all the related documents like all government licences along with the formalities are ready, we help the school promoters to file the online application. Generally, the majority of the schools submit their files to get the CBSE affiliation when they launch their seventh grade/eighth-grade batch followed by the inspections which are undertaken to seek permission in the same academic session.
Under the stewardship of the Eroconians, the stage-wise procedural protocol is enumerated down:
- Stage One-Through the first stage services, we render the services of carrying out the CBSE Inspection Audit at the school site.
- Stage Two-After the thorough review and success of stage-one; there comes filing the online application via the respective portal. Erocon caters the services of arranging all those relevant documents to the successful submission of the CBSE application meeting the deadline.
- Stage Three-The next hurdle to overcome is to gear up for the inspection along with getting the inspection accomplished by the CBSE team. Erocon will prepare the school for the day of insection day by IC members
- Stage Four- This stage is about ensuring a smooth Inspection by th IC members & regular follow-ups services from the CBSE in the pursuit of getting to know the latest status from the CBSE Board.
Every year, CBSE opens its registration application on 1stof Januaryfor middle, secondary, senior secondary, and switching over cases. Its application closes on the 31stof Marchevery year.
To stay tuned to the latest ongoing trend, the CBSE board sends its first response within an expected time of 60 to 120 days in the form of deficiency or the constitution of the Inspection Committee. It takes almost 30 days to conduct and submit the inspection approval by the committee from the date of the intimation letter. After the successful report of the inspection, the CBSE takes almost 30-60 working days to grant the label of CBSE Affiliation in case of no deficiency raised from the board. These are the normal conventional timelines. However, CBSE might take up to 12 months in a lot of cases which have a minor or major deficiency.
