Parents who termed it “open loot” alleged that the school administration has directed them to purchase the same books to specific stationary outlets.
“School admin has covertly incorporated new books into syllabus without taking Board of School Education (BOSE) into confidence. This move is aimed to open loot by these institutions for earning huge commission from stationary dealers”, parents alleged.
They said the authorities should come up with strong note followed by strict action against these schools who have ignored the prescribed syllabus by BOSE as it tantamount the violation BOSE norms.
