A day after the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) filed an FIR against Narayana e-Techno School in Koramangala for running classes illegally, the school management representatives met parents here on Saturday and claimed they would obtain affiliation from the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) in a month’s time.

The meeting convened by the management did not succeed in allaying fears of the parents, who were anxious after the FIR was filed against the school management. A parent whose two children study in the school said, “We just changed their schools last year and with the irregularities of the school being made public, we do not know what to do. We are not sure if they would get the documents required,” the parent said.

A parent and BJP leader V. Sudarashan, who filed the complaint regarding irregularities of the school, said that while the law would take its own course, the school management had told them that the school would function as usual.

A school management representative refused to acknowledge that the school had erred. “We are in the process of obtaining all the necessary documents,” the representative said refusing to comment further.

The FIR was filed by the Department of Public Instruction (DPI), for cheating parents, the department and the public. It names eight persons representing the management, including P. Narayana, the Andhra Pradesh Minister for Municipal Administration and Urban Development Urban Water Supply and Urban Planning. The school management officials however claimed that Mr. Narayana had given up the post after he entered politics.

The complaint was filed by the department for running classes six and ten without permission. The school board says that classes are imparted as per CBSE syllabus, although it is yet to get affiliation from the board.
