Delhi Board of School Education Registered; Official Notification Expected Soon

Delhi’s own education board – ‘Delhi Board of School Education’ has been officially registered. As per the Directorate of Education (DoE), an official notification detailing its modalities is expected to be out soon. Confirming the same, a senior DoE official said, “The Board was officially registered on Tuesday and is expected to bring in a most-awaited reform in the school assessment system.” The Delhi Board of School Education or DBSE was approved by the Cabinet on 6 March 2021. 

Congratulating the students, teachers, and other stakeholders, the Directorate of Education termed this move as the ‘most awaited reform in their assessment system’.

Delhi School of Education Board – Details so far

  • The Delhi Board of School Education will have a governing body chaired by the Education Minister.
  • Further, it will have an executive body for day-to-day functions and will be headed by a CEO.
  • The governing as well as executive body of DBSE will have experts from industries, the education sector, principals of government and private schools, and bureaucrats.
  • Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had earlier informed that in the 2021-22 academic session, 20 to 25 schools will be placed under the new board.

Would the introduction of Delhi School of Education Board lead to a dip in fee structure?

A state board for Delhi is expected to bring welcome changes in the schooling system in the capital. 

Currently, there are about 1,000 government and 1,700 private schools in Delhi, nearly all of which are affiliated with the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). However, several families have been unable to afford the school and exam fees under CBSE, which is considered to be a major reason behind the surge in dropout rate. Currently, under CBSE, the Class 10 exam fee is Rs 1,500 to 1,800 while the Class 12 exam fee ranges between Rs 1,500 to 2,400. With the introduction of Delhi’s own board, there is expected to be a considerable dip in school fee structure.
