No merger of CBSE and ICSE, Supreme Court dismisses petition


New Delhi: Supreme Court dismisses PIL seeking One Nation One Board. With this, the speculation of the merger of the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE Board) and Certificate of Secondary Education of India (ICSE Board) came to an end. Please tell that the leader and advocate of the Bharatiya Janata Party, Ashwini Kumar Upadhyay filed a PIL for giving guidelines for uniform curriculum, equal education, equal board for children from 6 to 14 years of age across the country. But the Supreme Court dismissed the petition. With this, the speculation about the merger of CBSE and ICSE board came to an end.

The court gave this answer

It was placed before a bench headed by Justice DY Chandrachud for public interest litigation. The bench said – how can you ask the court to merge one board with another? These are not court functions. The bench has asked the petitioner to approach the government with its prayers. Saying this, the Supreme Court refused to hear the petition and dismissed it. Let us know that both CBSE and ICSE are national boards and schools across the country are related to them, where millions of students study.

Such was the petition

The petitioner Ashwani Kumar Upadhyay had suggested the selection of one nation one education board in his PIL. Along with this, he had also asked the Supreme Court to give directions regarding the merger of CBSE and ICSE board. Apart from this, a petition was also filed demanding the implementation of the same board, the same syllabus for children from 6 to 14 years. The petition said that the central and state governments have not taken any step towards implementing a uniform education system across the country. In such a situation, all primary schools should have the same syllabus and education for social and economic equality and justice. It was also stated in the petition that at present each education board has its own separate syllabus which has to face a lot of trouble and the biggest thing is that due to the separation of the board, the children have a sense of rivalry and high-handedness. She comes. The board status of schools has become similar. Whereas, the children of the State Board of Education do not have the resources and facilities that they can match with the CBSE or ICSE Board affiliated schools. In such a situation, one country-one board-one education system should be implemented in the country.
