CBSE has held in abeyance its circular mandating that selection panels for choosing heads of its affiliated schools will include a person nominated by the CBSE chairperson and a nominee of the state government.
Keeping in view the existing provisions in various state legislations on education, the CBSE circular dated December 21, 2016 has been kept in abeyance, restoring thereby the earlier provision of Affiliation Bye-laws in case of recruitment of the head of the school, the CBSE said in a statement today.
