Association of Indian Universities will evaluate newly formed school education boards . The Association of Indian Universities will evaluate the newly formed school education boards .
The Union Education Ministry adopted the Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) in July, which were adopted by the SOP to provide equivalentity certificates to students X and XII who are being recruited from existing state school boards.The Association of Indian Universities (AIU) will now evaluate the newly formed school education boards.Nevertheless, the now established state education boards must not seek equivalence because they are already considered equivalent.The new state education boards will be required to comply with the provisions of the NEP 2020, Right to Education (RTE) Act, 2009, and the National Curriculum Framework (NCF) to gain equivalentity from AIU.The All India Council for Open Education, New Delhi, the Indian Council of Open School Certificate Examination, Maharashtra, and Akhil Bhartiya Rashtriya Vidyapeeth, Karnataka, are among the unrecognised school boards.Besides this, there are a number of other unrecognised state school boards in the region.Pankaj Mittal, president-general of the Association of Indian Universities (AIU), says in an interview with Education Times, This is not for the newly formed school education boards.The proposed state education board will be required to obtain an equivalent certificate, comply with NEP 2020 and RTE 2009, and follow the National Curriculum Framework (NCF). Students will not face any difficulties in applying to colleges because the universities will not question the legitimacy of their respective state boards.There are currently about 100 school boards that are not recognized.Mittal informs that we'll complete the process of giving equivalence to state school boards in six months.According to Mittal, the AIU also has an equivalence commission, a governing council, and an expert committee. The Education Ministry's SOPs would make the transition process for students from a new state school board to a deemed equivalent board a smooth process.Four students from Bihar board who had passed class X recently applied to apply for admission to our board but were unable to be accepted because there was no correlation between the two boards.We asked the Bihar Board to write a letter asking us for equivalence, and the whole process took six months, and because of this the students had to suffer a lot.Once AIU grants equivalence to the new state school boards, they will no longer have to seek equivalence from other boards and will be automatically included in the centralized list of equivalent boards of AIU. The particular state board cannot operate its centers in any other state than in its home state, as per the SOPs issued.The Board of Open Schooling and Skill Education (BOSSE), which is based in Sikkim, established its establishment in Haryana a while back, but we allowed it as required by the Legislative Assembly.We therefore gave it equivalence on September 30, 2021, and it came to our notice that two class X pass certificates had come to us for verification of equivalence on September 13, 2021 from the same board.We immediately cancelled BOSSEs equivalence, since these certificates were issued to students before we gave them board equivalence, informs Singh.
