The list of these unapproved institutions has been made available on the official website at

Public Alert on Unrecognized Schools

The official notice from the Directorate of School Education states, “In the Puducherry Union Territory jurisdiction, it has come to know that while scrutinizing there are many Private schools which are functioning without the proper recognition from the Directorate of School Education, Puducherry. It is deemed as erroneous to run a school in such a state and it is against the law.” The notice emphasizes that admitting children to these unrecognized schools could result in bogus admissions, holding parents responsible for any future grievances.

Parents Advised to Verify Accreditation

Director of School Education, P Priytarshny, recommended that parents verify the accreditation of schools with the Puducherry Directorate of School Education before allowing their children to enroll. The notification underscores the importance of ensuring that schools possess the necessary recognition to avoid potential legal consequences.

Following the release of the list, Director Priytarshny revealed that closure notices have been served to all 33 unrecognized institutions. These establishments have been instructed to cease operations immediately. Admitted students from these schools are expected to be accommodated by either government schools or other private institutions.

Inspection Reveals Violations and Measures Taken

Reports indicate that, upon departmental inspection, the unrecognized schools were found operating in small buildings without proper authorization and in violation of safety regulations. Consequently, the Directorate of School Education promptly ordered the immediate closure of these institutions.

In response to the inspection findings, Director Priytarshny stated that urgent measures are being taken to address the situation and safeguard the educational interests of the students. The closure notices served to the unrecognised schools reflect the Department’s commitment to upholding educational standards and ensuring the safety of students.

Call for Enhanced Oversight

The incident underscores the need for enhanced oversight and regulatory measures to prevent the operation of unregistered educational institutions. It also highlights the Directorate’s dedication to maintaining the integrity of the education system in Puducherry. The revelation of 33 unapproved private schools in Puducherry emphasizes the critical role of regulatory bodies in ensuring the legitimacy and quality of educational institutions. The Department of School Education’s swift action and public disclosure serve as a reminder of the ongoing efforts to uphold educational standards and protect the welfare of students in the region. Parents and guardians are urged to exercise diligence in verifying the accreditation status of schools to avoid potential legal ramifications and safeguard the educational journey of their children.
